Newton's Laws of Motion

  • Who is Sir Isaac Newton?
Newton was a philosopher/and scientist

  • Explain the 3 Laws
The 3 laws are the law of inertia, The law of acceleration and the law of action/reaction. The first law states that if you do not apply force to the object it would remain still until you apply force and will be stopped by force. The second law is the object's acceleration is the amount of force applied to the object such as a tennis ball. The third law is for every action there will always be a equal and opposite.

  • How did the game ‘inertia ball’ demonstrate Newton’s Laws?
In the game inertia ball it's demonstrated everyone law of motion. The first law is the law of inertia was demonstrated by the swiss ball the swiss ball would be sitting in the middle of the court and we would have to chuck different balls such as a basketball at the swiss ball. Throwing a ball with a unbalanced force would cause the swiss ball to move a lot or not at all. The second law is shown by throwing the ball with the most mass to make the swiss ball move. The third law is when the ball hit the swiss ball that was the action and when the ball rebounded off the swiss ball which was the reaction Isaac Newton created the laws of physics which means he's smarter than you.

  1. I definitely think Sir Isaac Newton is smarter than me! I hope you enjoyed this activity Paris - you have written a great post to outline the three laws of motion. Can you remember the equation for Law 2 (acceleration)? Which balls had the greater mass, so created the largest force?

  2. Kia ora Paris,
    Yep like Georgia, I think (or def know) Sir Isaac Newton is smarter than me! Thanks for reminding me of the three laws on motion. It is great to read your posts as it gives me a lense into your learning at Tamaki College. As I spend most of my time in primary schools I really appreciate knowing more about what happens at college. Did you take any photos or videos of you trying out the laws of motion?

  3. Kia ora Paris
    My science class studied Newton's Laws today and you have given me two great ideas. I wish to add your last sentence onto our Slide presentation and we are going to replicate the Swiss Ball idea with the other ideas we have.(I have just told the PE teacher) Thank you for your blog. I will share it with my class as inspiration and who knows your may, in the near future receive from my science class
    Your mahi gets two thumbs up from me.
    Whaea P
