Ch 12.2 Newton's First and Second Laws of Motion

Author: deirdre carney
Description:
  • Describe Newton's first law of motion and its relation to inertia
  • Describe Newton's second law of motion and use it to calculate acceleration, force, and mass values.
  • Relate the mass of an object to its weight

Nevada Science Standards

P.12.B.1 Students know laws of motion can be used to determine the effects of forces on the motion of objects. E/S 

Next Generation Science Standards

HS-PS2-b Use mathematical expressions to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.

Chapter 12.2 Newton's 1st and 2nd Laws of Motion

Read Chapter 12.2 Newton's 1st & 2nd Laws of Motion
Outline the reading in your Science Notebook & include major points and diagrams/tables.
You should focus on the following essential questions:
-How does Newton's first law relate change in motion to a zero net force
- How does Newton's second law relate force, mass, and acceleration
- How are weight and mass related
