Transcript of Newton's Laws of Motion at the Amusement Park

Newton's Laws
at the
Amusement Park By Andrew Siegelin

Object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force

Object in motion continues in motion with same speed and in same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force

The law of inertia Sir Isaac Newton 1643-1727
Physicist,astronomer, mathematician, philosopher
Scientific Revolution of the 17th century
Principles of modern physics
Greatest physics book ever Newton Notes
For every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction

Equal in magnitude and opposite in direction

Forces occur in pairs First Law of Motion Second Law of Motion Third Law of Motion

The net force acting on an object equals the object's mass multiplied by its acceleration

Greater the mass of the object being accelerated, greater the amount of force needed to accelerate the object The Drop of Doom demonstrates Newton's Second Law. When the ride reaches its peak, it suddenly accelerates in a downward direction. This is due to gravity (the force). The Drop of Doom falls at 9.8 m/s, the force of gravity. When the two Bumper Cars collide,they are an example of Newton's Third Law. When the cars crash, there is an equal but opposite reaction force between them. The reaction force makes the cars go in different directions after colliding. In the Spill the Milk game, a person is supposed to hit three milk bottles off a shelf by using baseballs. If they complete the task they would normally receive a prize. This game explains Newton's First Law, because the milk bottles will stay at rest (inertia)until the baseball(the force) hits them and knocks them over. 1550s-present
