Mrs. Frizzle, I'm confused. What is Newton's 1st and 2nd law?
The Laws of Newton
Good question, Carlos!
Newton's 1st Law states, "An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force."Refering to inertia, resistance of change.Basically, An object stays rest, if an object is in motion it stays, until a force makes it move or stop moving. Let's experiment outside!
Like this ball, now it is on rest. But when I kick it, my foot is the unbalance force, now the ball is flying up. My foot kicked it, causing the ball that was once at rest to move.
Now I understand, Newton's 1st Law is based on unbalanced forces causing an object to stop or move.The the 2nd says how the object's motion depends on the mass and force?
Yup! Simple as that! I hope you all learned something new!Let's go back to school now, I'm starving!!!
