## NEWTON'S FIRST LAW.

An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

This law is often called
"the law of inertia".

## NEWTON'S SECOND LAW.

When you are trying to skateboard, you push on the ground to move, initially and sometimes as you move along right? So, my teacher told us that you push on the ground (applying a force), and the ground must also push back on you (a force of equal magnitude but opposite direction as the one you applied) in order for you to be able to move.

## NEWTON'S 3 LAW.

Newton’s third law of motion explains how Jerod starts his skateboard moving. This law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. This means that forces always act in pairs. First an action occurs—Jerod pushes against the ground with his foot. Then a reaction occurs—Jerod moves forward on his skateboard. The reaction is always equal in strength to the action but in the opposite direction.
