Following are some examples of Newton’s Second Law of motion: If you use the same force to push a truck and a car, the car will have more acceleration than the truck because the car has less mass. It is easier to push an empty shopping cart than a full one, because the full shopping cart has more mass than the empty one.

2. Newton’s Second Law of Motion (Force) The acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied. 3. Newton’s Third Law of Motion (Action & Reaction) Whenever one object exerts a force on another object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite on the first.

Newton's Laws of Motion - First, Second And Third Laws of Motion

1. Kicking a ball. When we kick a ball, we exert force in a specific direction, which is the direction in which it will travel. In addition, the stronger that ball is kicked, the stronger the force we put on it and the further away it will go.
2. Capture the ball by hand. Professional athletes move their hands back once they catch the ball as it provides the ball more time to lose its speed, and in turn apply less force on its part.
3. Push a car. For example, pushing a supermarket cart with twice as much force produces twice as much acceleration.
4. Pushing cars. On the other hand, pushing two supermarket trolleys with the same force produces half the acceleration, because this varies inversely.
5. Push the same car full or empty. It is easier to push an empty supermarket cart than a full one, since the full cart has more mass than the empty one, so more force is needed to push the cart full.
6. Pushing a car. To calculate the force needed to push the car to the nearest petrol station, assuming that we move a car of one ton around 0.05 meters per second, we can estimate the force exerted on the car, which in this case will be about 100 Newtons.
7. Driving a truck or a car. The mass of a truck is much larger than that of a car, which means it requires more power to accelerate to the same extent.
8. Two people walking together. The same reasoning above can be applied to any moving object. For example, two people walking together, but one of them has a lower weight than the other, although they walk with the same amount of force, who weighs less will go faster because their acceleration is certainly greater.
9. Two people pushing a table. Imagine two people, one with more force than the other, pushing a table, in different directions. The person with greater strength is pushing towards the east, and the person with less force towards the north.
10. Playing golf. In a golf game, the acceleration of the ball is directly proportional to the force applied to the club and inversely proportional to its mass.

Riding a bicycle is an excellent example of Newton’s 2nd law. In this example, the bicycle is the mass. The leg muscles pushing on the pedals of the bicycle is the force. You hit a wall with a certain amount of force, and the wall returns that same amount of force. This is an example of Newton’s 3rd law.

Newton’s Second Law of Motion 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. F = ma (Force = mass x acceleration)

F = + 240,000 N – 120,000 N = +120,000 N, and the initial acceleration, by Newton's 2nd law, is a = F/m = +120,000 N/12,000 kg = 10 m/s 2 = 1 g. The rocket thus starts rising with the same acceleration as a stone starts falling. As the fuel is used up, the mass m decreases but the force does not, so we expect a to grow larger.

Newtons three laws in motion is what we tested for this lab. Newtons first law states that an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon, same with an object at rest. Newtons second law states that force=mass(acceleration). Newtons third law states that for every action there is an equal or opposite reaction. The problem was that

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an example of newtons 2nd law?

Riding a bicycle is an excellent example of Newton’s 2nd law. In this example, the bicycle is the mass. The leg muscles pushing on the pedals of the bicycle is the force. You hit a wall with a certain amount of force, and the wall returns that same amount of force. This is an example of Newton’s 3rd law.

What is newtons 3rd law?

Newton's Third Law Newton's third law: All forces in the universe occur in equal but oppositely directed pairs. There are no isolated forces; for every external force that acts on an object there is a force of equal magnitude but opposite direction which acts back on the object which exerted that external force.

What is newtons 1st law?

By Ilkka Cheema. 2. Newton’s 1st Law  The first law of motion sates that an object will not change its speed or direction unless an unbalanced force (a force which is distant from the reference point) affects it. Another name for the first law of motion is the law of inertia.

How can we use newtons second law to predict motion?

The magnitude of acceleration depends on the mass of the object, but is always proportional to the force. Newton's Second Law gives an exact relation between the vectors force and motion. Thus we can use this law to predict the motion of an object given forces acting upon it, on a quantitative level.
