### Newtons 1st Law

Objects at rest stay at rest as for an object in motion which stays in motion at the same speed and instance unless acted on by an unbalanced force

There are many examples of Newtons 1st Law that relate to volleyball such as, when a player blocks the volleyball, the blockers forearms act as an unbalancted force that has stopped the ball from movement. Even when a player is in the front row is completely still is then ran into by another player would be a situation realting to a object at rest that is acted on by an unbalnced force. When a player serves the ballunsuccessfully and the ball reacts in hitting the net, the ball acts as a unbalanced force as for the net which is an object at rest. The volleyball net will stay motionless unless a player or ball hit it. When two players block the ball at the same time, the ball results in not going neither direction and is motionless, although gravity then immediately pulls the ball back down and hit the ground.

### Newtons 2nd Law

The acceleration of an object is proportional to the net force acting on the object and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

### Newtons 3rd Law

"To every action there's an equal and opposite reaction" -Newton
