That means the wheel to my watermill will remain at rest with no water running through it.
Newton's 1st law of motion states that an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and direction unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force.
With water the wheel will rotate at the same speed and direction unless an unbalanced force acts upon it.
Hey, Like a rock getting stuck, causing the wheel not to turn, water causes the wheel to turn. Both are external unbalanced forces.
I wish we were going down hill so my mass would help me to accelerate faster.
Newton's 2nd law states acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied.
I am heavy and have a little engine, so I don't accelerate fast.
I'm light and have a larger engine so I can accelerate really fast!
Two boulders were pushed with the same force from a helicopter. The larger boulder falls (accelerates) faster than the smaller boulder because its mass is greater.
Newton's 3rd law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
When the basketball drops, the action is it pushing on the floor, the reaction is the floor pushing on the basketball.
So if the ball hits the bat and forces it left is the action but the bat forces the ball right is the reaction......cool!
