1st Law of MotionInertiaMotion doesn't change without an outside force.. |

2nd Law of MotionF = maThis explains how much a force will change the motion of an ojbect. |

3rd Law of MotionFor every action...the force will effect the motion of both of the objects |

Homepage What you need to know

Newton's 3 laws of motion describe all of the motion in the

universe!! Not only that, but the three laws are easy to

understand and make sense.

His first law describes how an object will act if no outside force

is applied. It's motion will not change. This means it is

standing still it won't start moving, and if it is moving it will

continue moving with a constant velocity. (speed & direction)

His second law describes how an unbalanced force will change

the motion of an object. Both the mass and the amount of

force determine the amount of change in velocity. (remember:

this could be speeding up, slowing down, or changing direction)

His third law says that the force effects both objects involved in

the force (a force is a push or pull between**2 objects**). This

means that both objects will have some change in motion.

This part can get tricky because we often don't see the change

in the second object because we don't look for it or don't know

what to look for.

There are aspects of these laws that we also need to cover, the most difficult is acceleration, not just what it is, but the mathematical formula to calculate it. |
