Newton's 1st Law

Newton's 1st Las states that an object at rest will stay at rest, and an object in motion will stay in motion unless an outside force is acted upon it.


An example of Newton's 1st Law would be, a lawn mower. Since a lawn mower doesn't move unless a person pushes it, it is an object at rest. This object will stay at rest unless a person pushes it. This is Newton's First law of Motion being used in your every day life.

Newton's 2nd Law

Force = m x a (F=mxa) Force occurs when acceleration and mass combine together (multiply).


An example of Newton's Second Law of Motion in real life is if you push a toy car it will be easy to push because it have little mass, but if you try to push a real car it will be hard to move far since it have a much greater mass than the toy car. In this picture it shows that with a smaller mass there is more force and if there is a larger mass there is less force.

Newton's 3rd Law

For every force there is an equal and opposite reaction exists for every action.


An example of Newton's Second Law of Motion in real life is if you are opening a door. When you push the door that is the action and the door actually opening is the reaction. This picture shows that when the kid pushes off the ground the skateboard moves on the wheels. The action is the kids pushing off the ground and the reaction is the skateboard moving as it is being pushed.

Force, Inertia, Acceleration, and Mass

Force: is a push and a pull

Inertia: the tendency of all objects to resist a change in motion

Acceleration: is change of objects velocity in a point in time and in that instance

Mass: the amount of matter in an object
