## Newton's laws of motion: SWIMMINGJada Kauth

Newton's first law:

Rio 2016
In Swimming:

#### The swimmer will stay in motion, unless the water produces resistive force that requires propulsive forces for it to overcome.

Swimmer staying in motion with resistive force
Newton's 2nd law:

#### Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass and the greater the mass, the greater the amount of force needed to accelerate.

Newton's 2nd law example
In Swimming:

Newton's 2nd Law
Force Formula:

#### force = mass x acceleration.

Newton's 3rd Law:

Example:

In Swimming:

#### Can relate to the standard hand/arm stroke, the hand travels downward in the water and then backwards to move the swimmer forward. Creating an equal and opposite reaction, the swimmer is kept afloat and moved forward.

Newton's 3rd Law
Momentum Formula:

Overall:

#### In Swimming Newton's 3 laws are very well expressed through the motion of the swimmers, and the science behind human & water forces.
