Storyboard Text

  • Newtons first law explains that a object that is moving will not stop unless an outside force is acting on it and that an object that is stopped will not move unless acting on by an outside force. This law is also known as inertia
  • Newton's second law states that when a force hits any object the object will experience an acceleration. How much the object accelerates is based on the mass and the amount of force exerted on the object.
  • Newton's third law states that everything you do will be followed by an equal and opposite reaction. You can't have a reaction without an action and you can not have a action not followed by a reaction 
  • Newton's First Law
  • Newton's Second Law
  • Newton's Third Law
  • This shows Newton's first law of motion because the two boats are moving at the same speeds and have the same weight when they collide the boats both stop moving, but since the person on the boat was still moving and was never stopped by the other boat he continues to move and falls off the boat.
  • This shows Newton's second law because the same amount of force is being exerted on the two different balls but the ball with the smaller weight, the soccer ball travels more distance than the heavier ball, the basketball. This happens because of the smaller mass it is easy to push making it go father. To have them go the same distance you would have to use more force on the basketball.
  • This shows Newton's third law because the action is you pushing the ball down and the reaction is the floor pushing the ball back up into your hand. This action is repeated over and over. The more force you apply to push the ball down the more force the ball will have when coming back to your hand.
