Newton's laws of motion-- science

Storyboard Text

  • 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?
