# Newton's Laws of Motion

## Newton's First Law of Motion

- An object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon 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 of Motion

- Acceleration is produced when a force acts on its mass. The greater the mass of the object being accelerated, the greater the amount of force needed to accelerate the object.
- The equation is
*F=ma* *F=*Force,*m=*Mass,*a=*Acceleration

## Newton's Third Law of Motion

For every action there is a equal and opposite reaction

## Newton's First Law The football will stay at rest until the quarterback throws it. When he throws the ball, it will stay at the same speed until either gravity or the receiver acts upon it. | ## Newton's Second Law The rock has a small mass which makes it have a large acceleration, while with the same force a car has more mass but less acceleration. | ## Newton's Third Law An illustration of Newton's third law in which two skaters push against each other. The first skater on the left exerts a normal force N12 on the second skater directed towards the right, and the second skater exerts a normal force N21 on the first skater directed towards the left. |
