Conversano & Olmos, The Great Egg Drop, Nov. 5, 2012 5 Newtons First Law of Motion Objects in motion stay in motion and objects at rest stay at rest unless acted on by an external force All objects have inertia –A tendency not to change their motion Remain at rest Remain in motion
Conversano & Olmos, The Great Egg Drop, Nov. 5, 2012 6 Newtons Second Law of Motion The acceleration of an object is created by a net force on the object F = m a –For a given object, a larger force generates a larger acceleration –For a given force, a higher mass generates a lower acceleration
