Storyboard Text

  • An object that's movin' will just keep on movin', man. Y'know, go with the flow. But if you stop movin'--like if you sit down with your guitar and don't wanna get up--you're probably gonna "stay at rest."
  • Objects also resist change in motion. Like me resisting getting up. That's called inertia. Big objects have more inertia. Little objects have less. That's why it's a heck of a lot easier to throw small things than big things when you get mad. Little things will also go a lot further.
  • "Every action has an equal and opposite reaction." Like karma, man. What comes around, goes around. When you give something a good shove, it shoves back.
  • Newton's First Law
  • Scott strums his guitar at his school's talent show, and in accordance to Newton's first law, the strings continue moving until friction with the air slows them down or he stops their motion with his hand.
  • Newton's first law of motion states that an object in motion will remain in motion.
  • In taking a closer look, it can be seen that the thicker (lower-pitched) strings vibrate slower than the thinner (higher-pitched) strings, giving them a lower frequency.
  • Newton's Second Law
  • Newton's third law of motion states that, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
  • Newton's Third Law
  • Scott's fingers exert a force on the strings, but the strings react by exerting the same force back upon Scott's fingers. This results in a collection of musician's callouses on Scott's fingertips that that he is very proud of.
  • A Demonstration of Newton's First Law
  • A Demonstration of Newton's Second Law
  • Newton's second law of motion states that acceleration directly correlates to velocity.
  • A Demonstration of Newton's Third Law
