Newton's Laws of Motion in Life Nadia Trotman

Newton's first law of motion states that an object at rest will remain at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion with the same speed and direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced or outside force.

This image of a guy pushing the car is an example of newtons first law of motion because the car was at rest But it was acted upon by an unbalanced force causing it to move forward in the direction the guy is pushing it in.
kicking a soccer ball is a great example of newtons first law of motion, the person kicking the ball uses muscle an build up power while swinging their leg towards the ball creating a force that will cause the ball to go into motion in the direction that the ball was kicked in.

Newton's second law of motion states that the acceleration of an object produced by a net force or the sum of all forces acting on one object is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

this roller coaster is an example of newtons second law of motion because the amount of people can effect the weight causing it to go slower or faster. If there are more people on the roller coaster than there will be more weight resulting in a greater net force causing the roller coast to go slower. If there are no people or less people the roller coaster will go faster.
In this image two people are pulling a rock by a string this is an example of newtons second law because if they pull with more force than there will be more acceleration in this picture the smaller rock may have a greater acceleration due to its weight and size compared to the bigger rock with a higher mass and bigger size.

Newtons third law of motion states that that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction that act with the same momentum and opposite velocity. This means that for every push or pull on an object is because of an intereaction with another object

The person stepping off the skateboard is the action and the reaction is the board rolling in the opposite direction of the person. this is an example of newton's third law of motion due to the action of the person and the reaction of the board.
In this picture the action is the diver pushing down on the board and the reaction is the board pushing up towards the diver. The board puts the same amount of force on the diver as the diver puts on the board when he is about to dive.
