  • Newton's First Law states that a non-moving object stays at rest and a moving object continues to move unless acted upon by an unbalanced force
  • Newton's Second Law states that an object accelerates when a (unbalanced) force is applied
  • F=MA
  • Newton's Third Law states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction
  • Action=Reaction
  • Newton's First Law
  • 5N
  • Newton's Second Law
  • 3 m/s2
  • Newton's Third Law
  • This image shows that object in motion stays in motion. Even though the car has stopped, the man's body continues to move at the same speed and direction the car was due to inertia. 
  • 10N
  • This image shows that the harder the force you apply on an object, the faster it accelerates. Since the mass of the soccer balls is the same, when force is doubled, acceleration doubles.  
  •  6 m/s2
  • In a rocket, burning fuel creates a push on the front of the rocket, propelling it forward. This creates an equal and opposite push on the gas backward.
