The Laws of Motion .

In the absence of an unbalanced force. That is to say that whenever an object pushes another object it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard. However. This means that there is a natural tendency of objects to keep on doing what they're doing. and acceleration. but opposite in direction. first published on July 5. This means that for every force there is a reaction force that is equal in size. 1687. It can be expressed as a mathematical equation : FORCE = MASS times ACCELERATION F = M A or The Third Law of Motion : For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. All objects resist changes in their state of motion. mass. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. Newton used them to explain and investigate the motion of many physical objects and systems. Everyone unconsciously knows the Second Law.Guide Card The three laws of motion were first compiled by Sir Isaac Newton in his work Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica. The First Law of Motion : An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. an object in motion will maintain this state of motion. the Second Law gives us an exact relationship between force. This law is often called "the law of inertia". The Second Law of Motion : Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. . Everyone knows that heavier objects require more force to move the same distance as lighter objects. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object).

To give the students an idea by giving some activities that can be easily done by themselves. . 3. To make the students better understand the 3 Laws of Motion.Objectives 1. 2. To illustrate the Laws of Motion in everything that we do.

Put a coin on the center of the card. 2. Place a 3x5 card on top of a glass.Activity Card 1 Newton·s First Law: Try this activity! 1. 3. Flick the card horizontally with your finger. . 1. 2. What happens to the coin? Explain what happened to the coin using Newton's first law.

2. Fill the other one with water. 4. Which pail is easier to carry? . Carry the empty pail & walk briskly for about 10 meters. Do the same to pail with water. Get 2 pails of water. 3.Activity Card 2 Newton·s Second Law: Try this activity! 1.

2.Activity Card 3 Newton's Third Law: Try this simple activity! 1. What happened to the balloon? . 3. Let go the balloon. do not tie the end. Get an uninflated balloon. Inflate the balloon .

What is another name for the first law of motion? 4. Which law says that force is equal to mass times acceleration (F=MA)? 6. 2. Which law says that heavier objects require more force than lighter objects to move or accelerate them? . What is produced when a force acts on a mass? 5. Who was the scientist who gave us the Laws of Motion? How many Laws of Motion are there? 3.Assessment Card 1. Which law explains that there is a natural tendency of objects to keep on doing what they're doing? 7. Which law says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction? 8.

Which law says that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction? Answer : Third Law 8. How many Laws of Motion are there? Answer : 3 3.Answer Card 1. Which law explains that there is a natural tendency of objects to keep on doing what they're doing? Answer : First Law 7. Which law says that force is equal to mass times acceleration (F=MA)? Answer : Second Law 6. Who was the scientist who gave us the Laws of Motion? Answer : Sir Isaac Newton 2. What is produced when a force acts on a mass? Answer : Acceleration 5. What is another name for the first law of motion? Answer : Law of Inertia 4. Which law says that heavier objects require more force than lighter objects to move or accelerate them? Answer : Second Law .

The First Law says that an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. hold your hand in the proper position. In the first picture. If you hit the ball too hard it will go out of bounds. the ball is not going anywhere unless the girl serves it. In the second picture. The ball hits your hand just as hard as you hit the ball. Also. To avoid injuring your fingers. to make the ball go where you want it to go your must hit it in the proper spot with the proper force. the harder you hit the ball the faster it will go to whatever direction you hit it. a lighter ball will go farther and faster than a heavier ball. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.Enrichment Card Newton·s Law of Motion can easily be explained also in a volleyball game. Also. The ball won·t go over the net unless you hit it hard enough. .
