  70. 70. Newtons laws of motion
  71. 71. 1 An object will stay at rest or continue to move at a constant speed in a straight line (at a constant velocity), unless acted upon by an external net force. Professor Mac Spock explainsDocScientia p 59 Newtons first law of motion/Law of inertia
  72. 72. The resistance of an object to a change in its state of motion or rest. Because of inertia objects tend to remain at rest or continue at uniform velocity.DocScientia p 60 Inertia
  73. 73. Not a force – characteristic of matter Anything with mass has inertia Mass is a measure of inertia Greater mass = greater inertiaDocScientia p 60
  74. 74. In a frictionless system: Ball reaches same height as where the motion starts, even when the slope is reduced. Loss in height is due to friction. The ball would continue to roll as long as thereDocScientia p 60 is no friction.
  75. 75. Net force is not necessary for continuous constant motion in a straight line – it is needed to stop an object.DocScientia p 60
  76. 76. Protect against sudden changes in motion. According to Newtons first law, a person will continue to move until Seatbelt safety something stops them.DocScientia p 60
  77. 77. 2 If a net force acts on an object, the object will accelerate in the direction of the net force. Acceleration is directly proportional to net force and inversely proportional to mass. Prof Mac Second Law Fnet = maDocScientia p 66 Newtons second law of motion
