Each law explains a different theory about how gravity works. The first law talks about why objects stay in motion or rest unless an unbalanced force is acted upon that object. The next law explains how force equals acceleration. The third law talks about how if any action is created there is a equal and opposite reaction that appears. Each one of these laws…

    Introduction This practical was an investigation involving the use of a tennis ball and a meter ruler. The tennis ball was held and dropped at a specific height above the ground. The height of the bounce was then measured. This investigation was carried out to find out whether the efficiency of the bounce varied with the height of release of the tennis ball. If the bounce were 100% efficient, then the tennis ball would have bounce off the ground and return to the starting height. Research…

    Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was a British physicist who ideas and innovations helped him be viewed as one of the greatest physicist of all time. Though he had some great scientist to come before him (Archimedes or Galileo) it was Newton’s ideas that were deemed to exemplify the scientific method of inquiry that would be soon adopted throughout the science age. Aristotle’s theory of the physical universe was proven to be inadequate to describe the movement of nature, so Newton tried to come up…

    The scientist, Sir Isaac Newton, helped to organize the thinking about forces by formulating three laws. In his book Newton describes his three laws of motion. Newton’s Laws are all around us. To prove this, you will conduct 14 different activities showing everyday examples of these laws. Lab Procedure You will start at a lab station and then move from station to station until you have completed all 14 activities. You will have 3minutes to do the activity at each lab station. Perform the…
