Force, & Newton’s Laws of Motion

Force, Friction and Inertia
Force is a push or pull, can cause objects to speed up, slow down, or change direction. Unbalanced forces cause a change in motion, while balanced forces allow an object to keep doing what it is doing. Friction is caused by two objects coming into contact with each otherand acts as an unbalanced force on an object Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist motion, or to keep on doing what it is doing

Potential and Kinetic Energy
Potential energy An object at rest has potential energy. EX: A rock sitting on a cliff. Kinetic Energy An object in motion has kinetic energy. EX. A rock falling off the cliff, when it is in the air, this is where it has kinetic energy.

Newton’s Law of Inertia
“An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon an outside force.”

Newton’s Law of Force and Acceleration

For example…

Newton’s Law of Action-Reaction
"For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." Reaction Action

Balancing Act Law of inertia: The forces in the system are balanced so the object resists movement. Law of force and acceleration: Since there is no net force, the acceleration is 0. Law of action-reaction: The downward force of gravity is opposed by the upward force of the finger.

Static Can Race Law of Inertia: Once the can began rolling it stayed in motion, until friction acted upon it. Law of force and acceleration: Since the can is empty, the static force needed to move the can was small. Law of action-reaction: As the can was being pulled by the static force of the balloon, the motion is opposed by friction between the can and the floor.

Gyrocopter Law of Inertia: Once the gyrocopter began to fall, it continued falling until acted upon by the floor. Law of force and acceleration: As the mass of the gyrocopter increased, so did force its force. Law of action-reaction: As gravity pulls the gyrocopter down, air resistance is pushing up on the blades of the gyrocopter causing it to fall more slowly. When the mass increased, the downward force of gravity increased, causing the gyrocopter to fall faster.
