The three Laws of Motion

Newtons Laws

Newtons first Law

An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by a unbalanced force.

For example the football players tackle a player with the football and it takes more force to get him on the ground.

Newtons second law

Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass of the object being accelerated the greater the amount of force needed to accelerate the object.

Newtons Third Law

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