Newton's First Law of Motion

Newton's First Law of Motion

Storyboard Text

  • Newton's First Law of Motion!
  • So... Newton's first law of motion:
  • Would you like me to explain it to you?
  • Please do!
  • Yeah, Katie?
  • Hey Lainey?
  • I'm having trouble with Physics. Newton's 1st law doesn't really make sense to me!
  • 'An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion (going at the same velocity, and acceleration) will stay in motion, unless acted upon by another force.'
  • Let's say I'm sitting in this chair, not accelerating, or moving.I will stay like this until another force acts on me! (Katie pushing me)
  • And when I've been pushed, I'll keep going forwards in the chair, until another force (Friction, Gravity, or the ball in this case) stops me!
  • Now you're getting it!
  • So, can you explain it to me?
  • Sure!
  • Can I just have one more thing?
  • I need you to explain Newton's Second Law...
  • Yeah, I can! So if something is still, and if something is moving, the both will keep doing what they're doing!
