Storyboard Text

  • Are you sure you're ready for the game today?
  • Yeah, I think I'm ready. I'll see you at 5:00
  • How was school? Did you learn anything new?
  • It was alright. We learned about Newton’s second law. Force=mass times acceleration.
  • What's bothering you, man?
  • My kicks weren’t good during practice today, and I wasn’t even able to travel with the ball.
  • I’m just… worried about today’s game.
  • You know, Newton’s second law might actually help you with that.
  • How?
  • KICK
  • Take that rock for example. You needed to kick it before it could move and accelerate, or speed up. Your kick was a force, a push or pull. It was the force that set it in motion. It’s a small object, so it does not have a lot of mass. So, the amount of force that you exerted was enough to cause it to accelerate.
  • If you were to kick one of these bricks, and you used the same amount of force that you used on that rock, the brick wouldn’t move or even accelerate. It has more mass, therefore it needs more force than the rock would. An object with less mass will take less force to have it accelerate.
