Newtons laws of motion

Storyboard Text

  • I am okay, but we should go ask one of the science teachers why you kept moving after the car stopped!
  • Are you okay?
  • When I stopped the car suddenly i kept moving, and almost went over the windshield!
  • So, my car was the moving object, I was the object at rest and the sudden stop was the unbalanced force! Now it makes sense.
  • We would like to know why when a car stops suddenly do the passengers keep moving forward?
  • Ah, you have experienced Newtons first law of motion, Inertia. This law states that an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion at the same speed unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
  • Ms. Newton we have a question for you?
  • You have just witnessed Newton's second law. I think it's best we go back to class and then I'll explain
  • Mr.Galileo why were you able to push that box farther than I was?
  • So you must have applied more force causing the box to accelerate(move) more. So, if we had to boxes with different masses I wouldn't have to apply as much force to the lighter box! Thank you Mr.Galileo!
  • Newtons second law of motion states that the rate of change of momentum of an object is directly proportional to the unbalanced force in the direction of force
  • Why was I the only one that moved when Steve collided with us?
  • I don't know I think we should ask coach Einstein!
  • Reaction
  • Action
  • You just experienced newtons third law of motion. It states that for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction.
  • Oh I get it the cycle of action to reaction kept happening until the last person's reaction wasn't stopped by anything.
  • Coach Einstein why was Grace the only one to move when Steve collided with our line?
