First Law - Law of Inertia
Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion, including changes to its speed and direction. It is the tendency of objects to keep moving in a straight line at constant velocity.
Examples (Inertia)
If you are in a car, moving at 1…
Second Law - Law of Acceleration
Acceleration, in physics, is the rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time. An object's acceleration is the net result of any and all forces acting on the object, as described by Newton's Second Law.
Examples (Acceleration)
When a person pushes down the gas pedal, the car has positive acceleration. When the brakes are applied over a period of time, the vehicle accelerates in the negative direction. Another example is throwi…
Third Law - Law of Interaction
Interaction is a kind of action that occurs as two or more objects have an effect upon one another. The idea of a two-way effect is essential in the concept of interaction, as oppose…
Examples (Interaction)
3rd law applies to driving because when you drive the action force is the pushing against the road and the reaction is the road pushing against the tires. Also when a car hits a per…
If a person is moving to the right, then the forces acting upon it are NOT balanced.
Which of the following statements are true of an object that experiences balanced forces (or unbalanced forces)? List all that apply.
