I wonder why the puck keeps moving and doesn't stop unless we stop it with our sticks?
The puck does that because based off of Newton's first law of motion once an inanimate object starts moving and keeps moving unless a net force causes it to stop.
Yep, or unless friction stops it. But, that would be very hard because ice has very little friction. That's why a puck move easier on ice than any other surface
So this puck after I hit will just keep moving and moving unless we stop it?
I think that has something to do with Newton's second law of motion
How is it possible that some people are able to make the puck go so much faster than others?
He's right. Newton's second law states that the acceleration of an object is proportional to the applied force
You got it!
So if I hit the puck harder it will go further faster than if it were hit with less force?
