What is the law?DefinitionWhere can we seeit?
Law of motion“The law of inertia”
An object at rest willremain at rest unlessacted on by anunbalanced force. Anobject in motioncontinues in motionwith the same speedand in the samedirection unless actedupon by an unbalancedforce.
This law is the reason youshould always wear yourseatbelt!!2
Law of Motionf=ma
Acceleration isproduced when a forceacts on a mass. Thegreater the mass (of the object beingaccelerated) thegreater the amount of force needed (toaccelerate the object).Everyone knows thatheavier objects requiremore force to move thesame distance aslighter objects.
Law of Motion
For every action thereis an equal andopposite re-action.That is to say thatwhenever an objectpushes another objectit gets pushed back inthe opposite directionequally hard.
