Newton's Three Laws Of Motions<br />By James Mitchell<br />
Newton's First Law<br />Newton's first law is: Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.<br />
Newton's Second Law<br />The change in velocity (acceleration) with which an object moves is directly proportional to the magnitude of the force applied to the object and inversely proportional to the mass of the object<br />
Newton's Third Law<br />For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.<br />
Newton's First LawII<br />Newtons third law means that an object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest, unless acted upon by an out side force. For example if you pull a clothe out from under a table quickly, the object at rest (any object on the table) will stay at rest. <br />
Newton's Second Law II<br />Newton's second law means that an object that's velocity is changed, that change is direct and proportional to the magnitude of force that changed the objects velocity. Such as if you push a car, the car will accelerate proportionaly to the magnitude of force you applie to push that car.<br />
Newton's Third Law III<br />Newton's third law means that any action has a result equal and oposite to the action. For example if you shoot a bullet at a piece of wood (the action); the bullet will put a hole in the wood (the equal and oposite reaction).<br />
The Myth Behind the Laws<br />Accoarding to popular myth, Newton's laws of motion were conceived: when one day when he was drinking tea in the garden, he saw an apple fall to the ground. He started thinking about why it fell, and finally concluded that the same force which caused the apple to fall also kept the moon in orbit around the earth. This same force, gravity, * also kept the planets in orbit around the sun.<br />http://gardenofpraise.com/ibdnewt.htm<br />
