We're here to explain the laws of motion. Let's start with inertia
That means an object will remain in its state of motion unless acted upon by a force
Follow us and we'll show you!
We're here in my room with a tennis ball. Take it away Hanna!
Thanks Eric! This ball will remain still until we move it.
And that is inertia! It won't move until a force is applied. And that takes us to the next law.
A force is a push or pull that makes an object move or stop
Like Nat said, it makes objects move. I'm going to apply force to the tennis ball.
Eric applied a force to the ball and it moved. Now let's talk about the 3rd law
Action and reaction! When you apply force to an object...
...that object is going to apply force back! That's the reaction part
So if the driver of the car applies force by slamming on the brakes, the car jolts forward along with the passengers
We're not actually going to slam on the brakes right now, right?!
Of course not! That's too dangerous
But that's why you should always wear a seat belt when you're riding in a car
And those are Newton's laws of motion!
We hope you enjoyed! Bye!!
