Transcript of Newton's Three Laws Of Motion in Hockey

photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli By: Roope Raikaa Newton's three laws in Hockey First Law of Motion Sir Isaac Newton's first law states "An object an rest will stay at rest". This relates to hockey because they puck on the ice will not move, unless it is hit by an outside force,which includes a stick, body,skate,etc. Inertia, also relates to this when a player is skating, he will not slow down until the friction(and outside force)of the ice eventually slows the player down. Newton's Second Law Newtons second law states that Force equals mass times acceleration(F=ma). This relates to hockey because when the puck is hit, if it is not hit with a great force, it will not accelerate as much as if it were hit with a realy great force. Also it depends on the players mass, but not completly. If the player who is hitting has a greater mass than the player who is being hit, most likely he will fall harder. Newton's Third Law Newton's third law of motion states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. In hockey, when a player is skating, his skates push of the ice, which creates an opposite reaction, which propels the player forward and make him gain speed. Hockey is more than just that Newton's three laws are definitely not the only way hockey is related to science. In hockey, when a player is checked, the action force is the player who is hitting the other player and the reaction force is how the player being hit reacts, such as falling.If one player hits the other player hits one player harder than the other, it is an unbalanced force, but if they both apply the same force on each other, it will be balanced. When the puck is shot, it would not come down without the force of gravity, but with gravity it does. Summary of Hockey In hockey, the objective of the game is to puck the puck into the opposing teams goal.A puck is a round blak piece of rubber that is not soft rubber, but hard. On each team, usually there are 17 players on a team. But , only 5 players and 1 goalie are allowed on the ice at a time. The positions in hockey include center, right wing, left wing, right defenseman, left defenseman, and goalie. In hockey, the major rules happen if you interfere with another player, such as tripping, hooking, interference, etc. The National Hockey League (NHL) is the biggest known league throughout the world, but is in a lockout right now. Hockey is one of the sports in the Winter Olympics, played by many countries.
