Newtons Laws

Welcome to Tv6’s special today, I am , and I will be your host, we will be reviewing 3 special segments that all involve Newton’s 3 laws. Let’s go take a look at the first one. As you just saw in this Polo segment, Newton’s first law is one of the reason this game exists, if you hit the ball with the polo sick the reason for the ball to continue in motion is because of Newton’s First Law, “An object in motion will remain in motion unless an external force acts upon it.” But the reasons behind the ball slowing down is because of the outside forces, those are acting on the ball, causing the ball to slow down. Let’s go take a look at the next segment.

When driving a car, in this case NASCAR, but any car really, the acceleration of the car is proportional to the force exerted by the tires, and is inversely proportional to the mass of the car. This is because of Newton’s second law, “F=ma; acceleration is proportional to force and inversely proportional to the mass of the accelerated object.” Let’s go take a look at one more video clip.

This guy here is dribbling a bowling ball just like a basketball, not quite sure what gave him the idea, but It’s a perfect example of Newton’s third lav. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, so Then the ball collides with the ground, the ground exerts a force on the ball propelling it back in to the air

When you dribble a bowling ball the ball collides with the floor, and then the floor exerts a force on the ball propelling it back into the air. This is because of Newton’s third law, “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.”
