Today we will be learning about newton's three laws of motion!
Now who plays sports...
Don't worry, I'll make sure to not keep it interactive!
Those of you who play sports, specifically basketball, will know that the ball will not move unless it is pushed or has been pushed. You will also know that the ball will continue to travel in the air until friction stops its movement. This is called inertia and it is the first of Newton's three laws. This law states that an object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest until a force is enacted upon it.
Now the second law of motion states that the more mass an object has the more force will be necessary for it to accelerate. Basketball players will know this because the more power you put into the ball the faster it goes. People who like to lift weights will also know that more force is required to lift things with more mass.
Finally, Newtons third law of motion is that every action has an equal or opposite reaction. This can be shown by the bouncing of a basketball when a player is dribbling. The basketball falls then is pushed upwards by the force of its fall.
