Newton's First Law (Chapter 2 Lesson 2)

Author: Jason Fritz
Description:

Key Concepts/Learning Targets
•I know what Newton’s first law of motion is.
•I know how motion is related to balanced and unbalanced forces.
•I know the effect inertia has on the motion of an object.

•Unbalanced forces cause an object to move.
•According to Newton’s first law of motion, if the net force on an object is zero, the object’s velocity does not change.
•Inertia is a property that resists a change in the motion of an object.

Newton's First Law of Motion

You will learn about "Newton's First Law of Motion" in this video. Sir Isaac Newton was one of the greatest influential scientists of all time. He formulated the 3 laws of motion.

Newton's First Law of Motion states that an object will continue to remain at rest or uniform motion unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force.

Let us consider an object at rest, like this ball. This ball will not move unless some kind of force acts on it, proving Newton's law. Newton's law also states that this ball will continue to stay in a state of constant velocity in the absence of an unbalanced force. This is hard for us to understand, as in human existence, we have always seen and believed that a moving ball will ultimately come to rest. The reason this happens is because there is an unbalanced force called the force of friction acting on the ball, making it stop. In the absence of frictional force or any other unbalanced force, this ball will continue to move with constant velocity, proving the second part of Newton's First Law of Motion.

Newton in Space

In this 'Lift off to Learning' series video, astronauts (Charles Veach, Gregory Harbaugh, Donald McMonagle, Michael Coats, L. Blaine Hammond, Guion Bluford, Richard Hieb) from the STS-39 Mission use physical experiments and computer animation to explain how weightlessness and gravity affects everything and everyone onboard the Space Shuttle. The physics behind the differences between weight and mass, and the concepts of 'free fall', are demonstrated along with explanations and experiments of Sir Issac Newton's three laws of motion.

SCIENCE OF NFL FOOTBALL: NEWTON'S FIRST LAW OF MOTION

"Science of NFL Football" is a 10-part video series funded by the National Science Foundation and produced in partnership with the National Football League. In this segment, NBC's Lester Holt breaks down Isaac Newton's First Law of Motion and how it can change how fast players can speed the football up or slow it down. Professors Tony Schmitz of the University of Florida and Jim Gates of the University of Maryland explain why the control of inertia is so vital to the outcome of the game.

The Science of Disney Imagineering: Friction

Join Walt Disney Imagineer Asa Kalama on a ride into the world of imagination, inspiration and science -- the science of friction. Explore the Disney theme parks and learn how Disney Imagineers put friction to work as they design and build amazing attractions like Slush Gusher, the Richard Petty Driving Experience and Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show.

Bill Nye: Motion

Bill Nye the Science Guy explains that nothing can move or stop by itself, that everything needs a push or pull--a force--to make it move or stop. Sometimes an object might seem to be at rest, even when it is in motion. Confused? It's all relative. Relative motion, that is. This live-action, fast-paced program also features comedy, music videos, interviews with real scientists, and hands-on experiments to make the concepts presented understandable and fun.

Friction

In Friction, two young islanders, Olive and Troy, are delivering mail with a mammoth-drawn wagon when they learn how important the force of friction is as they attempt to slow down! Applying what they discover about friction, Olive and Troy test a variety of brakes, trying to find the type just right for them. Even with proper brakes, it does take some time to come to a stop, though. Young Troy and Olive find this out as they join their two delivery mammoths for an unscheduled bath after a foiled attempt to stop quickly! Part of the multivolume series The Way Things Work, based on the best-selling book by David Macaulay.
