Newton's 3 Laws
By: Mary McNeese
Law of Inertia
An object that is stopped will stay stopped until an unbalanced force moves it.
Examples: A car that is stopped at a stoplight then pushes on the gas pedal when the light turns green.
When a rock is sitting on top of a hill then someone pushes the rock down the mountain.
When a door is closed then someone opens the door.
Law of Acceleration
When an object is moving at a constant speed then speeds up or slows down or stops.
When someone kicks a soccer ball and it wants to keep going but someone else stops it with their foot.
When a runner runs sprints by running fast for one minute then running slow for a minute
When a car is at a constant speed then slows down to stop a red light
Law of Action/Reaction
For every action there is some type of reaction
When you mix baking soda and vinegar together it fizzes up
When you put Coke and Mentos together they explode
When you put milk and chocolate syrup together is makes chocolate milk
