# Newton's Laws of Motion

### By: Tanya Nava

## Newton's 1st Law of Motion

Newton's first law states that

__while__**an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force****.**__an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an outside force__In this image we see that __ the object__ (ball)

__(human)__

**will stay at rest until an outside force****(kicks it). The**

__comes and acts upon it__**(flying through the air)**

__ball then stays in motion____(the wall)__

**until an outside force**__and stops it's motion.__

**acts upon it**## Newton's 2nd Law

Newton's 2nd law tells us that an object will have greater acceleration if a greater force is applied to it. Therefore, the mass of an object and the force applied to it will affect acceleration. This law states that the acceleration (

**A**) of an object equals net force (**F**) divided by mass (**M**) and can be calculated using the equation__F=MA.__Newton's 2nd Law of Motion

## Newton's 3rd Law of Motion

Newton's final law states that

__when one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts a force on the first that is equal in strength and opposite in direction.__In this image we see that the boys action is letting go of the ball, then the ball exerts an equal force and bounces back up.
