# Newton's Laws of Motion Project

## Newton's First Law

An object in motion will stay in motion at the same speed and direction unless acted on by an unbalanced force.

## Example 1

In volleyball, when the ball is being sent over the net to the other team, the first person to pass the ball will cause an unbalanced force by passing the ball, making it change in direction.

## Example 2

When riding a bike, if you run into a curb, you will be sent flying forward off the bike because of the unbalanced force (the curb) stopped the bike but you were still moving so the acceleration sent you forward.

## Newton's Second Law

How much an object accelerates depends on how heavy it is and how much force is used to move it.

## Example 1

There is an empty and a full shopping cart, it will be harder to push the full shopping cart because it has more mass than the empty cart therefore more force is required to push the full shopping cart.

## Example 2

When you are kicking a soccer ball, it depends on how much force you use to make the soccer ball go as far as you want it to go.

## Newton's Third Law

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

## Example 1

When you lean on a wall, neither you or the wall is moving, therefore the same amount of force is acting on both ends.

## Example 2

When you are sitting on a chair, the same amount of force is acting on both sides, so you don't fall through the chair.
