Video: Laws Of Motion

Isaac Newton himself shows students how gravity, friction, and inertia are related to mass, force, and momentum. Exciting graphics and re-creations allow students to see how Newton's laws of motion relate to real life. Experiments with roller blades, baseballs, and other common objects encourage students to make science exploration recreational.

Student Application

Isaac Newton himself shows students how gravity, friction and inertia are related to mass, force and momentum.

Learning Objectives

  1. Students will know Newton's first law of motion (law of inertia): an object in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted on by and outside and unbalanced force; and an object at rest tends to stay at rest, unless acted upon by an outside force. One must exert force on object to overcome its inertia and cause it to move, change speed, change direc...

Supporting Activities

  1. Before viewing the video

    1. Throw a ball into the air and catch it. Roll it across the room. Place a book on a table. Blow up a balloon and let the air out. Ask the students what happened when you did the preceding activities and why those things happened. Watch the video to learn more.
