Newton's Laws Of Motion

By: Maggie Gomez

First Law

An object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity unless acted upon by an external force.

Example: Space is a vacuum so once something is set in motion it will continue to move until acted upon by an outside force. Gravity keeps the satellite near the earth but it continues to move around the earth because of the 1st law.

Second Law

On an object is equal to the mass m of that object multiplied by the acceleration vector a of the object.

Example: If you run faster it takes more energy. If you run with a 50 pound weight it requires more energy.

Third Law

A force is a push or a pull that acts upon an object as a results of its interaction with another object.

Example: If you punch a brick wall your hand will break. This is because the wall exerts an equal and opposite force to your hand.
