Newton's 3 Law of Motion

Resource summary

Newton's 3 Laws of Motion
1 Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in the state of motion unless an external force is applied to it
1.1 All objects resist changes in there state of motion In the absence of an unbalanced force, an object in motion will maintain this state of motion
1.1.1 An example of this law would be a skater rolling down the sidewalk and being stopped by a crumpled piece of paper, because the skater continues its motion with the same speed in the same direction until the crumpled piece of paper (Unbalanced force) stops the skater Another example would be a car running into a brick wall, because the car continues its motion with the same speed in the same direction, until the brick wall (Unbalanced forced) stops the car. Newton's first law relates to Football, because the football itself is at object at rest. Until a player kicks the ball (external unbalanced force acts on it). Acting as an external unbalanced force when the player kicks the football.
1.2 Newton's First Law of Motion
2 Newton's Second Law of Motion
2.1 Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object)
2.1.1 Heavier objects require more force to move the same distance as lighter objects An example of this law would be a person trying to kick a wall. The wall acts as the heavier object which requires more force to move to move the same distance as a lighter object. Such as a person kicking a soccer ball. It would take less force to kick the soccer ball, because it is a lighter object therefore it would take less amount of force. Another example of Newton's second law. Is a person trying to push their car to a location, because they ran out of gas. Since the car is a heavy object it will take the person. A lot more force to pull a car than it would a much lighter object. Newton's Second Law relates to Hockey. When two players collide Newton's Second law helps to calculate what the final veloctiy of the two players will be. For example a very large player striking a small player at rest will create a large velocity in the small player, because a force such as the body check of the bigger player was applied to him.
3 Newton's Third Law of Motion
3.1 For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
3.1.1 For every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size but opposite in direction. Whenever an object pushes another object it gets it gets pushed backed in the opposite direction equally hard. An example of this law would be a rocket. The rocket's action is to push down on the ground with the force of its powerful engines, and the reaction is that the ground pushes the rocket upward with an equal force. Another example of Newton's Third law would be what occurs when we step off of a boat onto the bank of a lake. As you move toward the direction of the shore, the boat tends to move in the opposite direction. Newton's Third Law relates to Hockey. When the larger player experiences a force from the smaller player pushing back on the bigger player. The bigger player soon gets slowed down . And the collision between both players remains conserved.
