Newton's Laws for Basketball By. tatianna Lozada

Newton's third law of motion is for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This statement means that in every interaction you may encounter, there is a pair of forces acting on the two objects. This video is about Lebron James talking about Newton's third law and how it is applied in basketball so when shooting a basketball it would be going through Newton's third law.

Examples of what Lebron says to be the Third Law.

Newton's Second Law of Motion is that the acceleration of an object as produced by a net force 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 indicates in Basketball because if the ball was heavier, you would need more force to get it in the basket.

This picture shows that since a car is way heavier than a lawnmower it takes a lot more force to be able to push it.

For any further explanation here is a video to explain more examples of Newton's Second Law of Motion.

Newton's First Law of Motion shows that any object at rest stays at rest unless a force is pressed on it. In basketball the ball is at rest when the ball is in your hand because you aren't moving the ball but then you throw it down on the ground so a force is acted on it making it no longer at rest.
