OH NO! my car CRASHED! Why didn't my body hit my dashboard?
According to Newton's first LAW my body should've kept moving forward! Wait my seatbelt!
Newtons first law States: An object in motion stays in motion, and an object at rest stays at rest unless and unbalanced force acts upon it
My seatbelt helped prevent my body from moving forward. It worked as an unbalanced force stopping my body's inertia. Newton's first law saved me!
Newton's Second Law of Motion
Well, the bigger box is filled with bricks, while the other box only has some paper. Perhaps that had something to do with how fast the box can go when I push them.
Hmm.. I'm pushing these two boxes with the same amount of force, but the bigger one is moving slower than the smaller box!
Newton's Second Law States: that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables - the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object.
AHA! Based on Newton's Second Law, the speed and direction of the boxes depends on the amount of force I use to push it and the mass of the box! So, since the smaller box only has paper, it is faster when I push it rather than the bigger box.
Newton's Third Law of Motion
WOW! How is the rocket able to get of the ground into space?
Since, the rocket is pushing down using it's flames, the aftermath is the ground pushing the rocket upwards! This is called action, and reaction!
Newton's Third Law states: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
