Newton s Laws of Motion Isaac Newton s Three Laws of Motion May 20 2018 Newton s Laws of Motion Abstract Isaac Newton s three laws of motion dictate the connection between acceleration and forces The three laws are applied in many ways in everyday life Most of the lab was centered around the Laws of Motion The forces that act around the world each day control the movements made by humans each day A force can be defined as any impact that causes an object to go through some form of change The change can focuses on the movements an object makes and the direction it goes in after the force has been applied This lab informs the students on how an object s acceleration is directly proportional to any new force that has acted upon the object Newton s Laws of Motion Introduction The laws of physics were discovered centuries ago Isaac Newton is know for his Laws of Motion Newton spent years in isolation formulating ideas about math and physics He want to learn what object that orbit the Earth and those that fall to the ground have in common Newton created quantitative explanations for the motion of falling objects orbiting objects and pulley systems His ideas were broken down into three basic laws Newton s first law states that an object at rest will remain at rest and an object at motion will remain in motion until acted on by an outside force This can be described as inertia If there is no net force to act on the object the object would keep the same constant velocity If the object has a velocity of 0 then the object is at rest and will remain at rest The velocity will only change if the object is acted on by an outside force Newton s second law describes how an object s velocity changes when acted on by an outside force This law describes force as an equal change in momentum per time This law also states that an object with a constant mass can be multiplied by the object s acceleration to find the force acting on the object Newton s second law states that for every
