Newton's Laws of Motion is the relationship between the forces acting on an object and its motion. It was first formulated by Sir Isaac Newton.
Do you know what is the Newton's First Law of Motion?
First Law of Motion
Yes, it is known as the 'Law of Inertia' wherein an object will remain at rest unless acted upon by an unbalance forced. Also, an object in motion will continue in motion with a constant speed and direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
I thought there were three laws of motion discovered by Newton.
Second Law of Motion
Absolutely! The second law of motion is also known as the 'Law of Acceleration' wherein it states that an object's acceleration depends on its mass and the amount of force applied. It can be written in the form of force=mass x acceleration.
So, what's the last Newton's Law of Motion?
Third Law of Motion
The third law of motion is also known as the 'Law of Action and Reaction'. It states that in every action there is an equal or opposite reaction.
Example of Newton's First Law of Motion
The ball is at rest so it will remain at rest unless, it was acted upon by an outside force which is the kick of the girl.
Example of Newton's Second Law of Motion
If both Maria and Jose apply the same force on a table and a chair, the table will have the lesser acceleration. In fact, the greater the mass of an object, the less it will accelerate when a given force is applied.
Example of Newton's Third Law of Motion
The force of the wind pushes on the sail which causes the boat to move. The force of the wind on the sail causing the boat to move has an equal and opposite direction.
