Newton's Laws of Motion and Baseball

Newton's 1st Law of Motion

An object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force. An object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.


  • The motion of an object will change if an unbalanced force acts upon it.

Newton's 2nd Law of Motion

States that the acceleration of an object is in the same direction as the net force on the object, and that the acceleration equals the net force divided by the mass.

  • F=mxa

Newton's Second Law of Motion

Newton's 3rd Law of Motion

States that when one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts a force on the first object that is equal in strength and in the opposite direction.

  • For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
