Newtons First Law explains that an object remains at rest, and an object in motion remains in motion at a constant speed and in a straight line unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Newtons Second Law explains that the acceleration of an object depends on the mass of an object and the amount of force applied. F=MA
Newtons Third Law explains that whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts and equal (in strength) and opposite (in direction) force on the first.
The ball was traveling in a straight path and then a basketball hit the ball that was moving straight, and changed it's direction and it slows down
If the boy applies the same amount of force on both the truck and the chair, the chair will go farther because the chair has less mass than the truck, causing it to go farther and at a faster speed.
When the boy jumps off the boat to go into the water, he will not only go in but he will force the boat to move backward with the same amount of force.
