Newton's Laws of Motion

Storyboard Text

  • Newton's first law of motion states that...
  • An object at rest stays at rest,
  • Don't let her get it!
  • And an object in motion stays in motion, with the same speed and same direction....
  • What are you doing Johnson?!
  • I got it!
  • Unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
  • No!
  • Ugh.
  • Hah!
  • Newton's second law of motion states that the lesser the mass of the object, the lesser amount of force necessary for acceleration, and vice versa for a greater mass.
  • Thus, the boy need not kick the ball very hard for it to move.
  • Newton's third law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
  • Why is the lady talking like that?
  • Say you have a baseball, and you drop it. The baseball hitting the floor, causing a downward force. This is the action.
  • WOW
  • The floor reacts by pushing the ball back with the same force, but in the opposite direction.
