The Theory Of Force And Motion

- Physics has through time inspired the minds of science into different ideas and theories, Beginning with the work of Aristotle, the Greek Philosopher, his theories and assumptions about force and motion are widely studied and understood through time. Born in 384 - 322 B.C.E. Aristotle joined Plato 's Academy at age of 18 and left at age of 36. He was the one of the first great scientists that contributed to the theories of force and motion. He first defined motion as the actuality of a potentiality, and also wrote about a series of studies that he made through his life, such as physics, biology, zoology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, aesthetics, poetry, theater, music, rhetoric, linguistics, p...   [tags: Classical mechanics, Newton's laws of motion]

Newton 's 2nd Law Of Motion

- Experiment #1 –Variable Forces Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion states that acceleration is directly proportional to net force when mass is constant. This experiment dealing with variable forces has as its objective the verification of this law. In this experiment this law is tested for verification in straight forward way. Through the use of a Force Sensor and an Accelerometer, data collection of observations and measurements that a force exerts on a small cart along with the cart’s accelerations are to be determined....   [tags: Force, Newton's laws of motion]

Sir Isaac Newton 's Law Of Motion

- Sir Isaac Newton was in my mind one of the greatest people who ever lived. He was born in 1642 and died in 1727. He formulated three laws of motion that help explain some very important principles of physics. Some of Newton 's laws could only be proved under certain conditions actual observations and experiments made sure that they are true. Newton 's laws tell us how objects move by describing the relationship between force and motion. I am going to try to explain his first law in more simple terms....   [tags: Force, Newton's laws of motion]

You can experience the first law in a stopping car, the second when you are a pushing a shopping cart, and the third one in the water. Newton's first law in laymen terms is 'An object in motion tends to stay in motion, and an object at rest tends to stay at rest, unless the object is acted upon by an outside force.'

Investigating Force And Acceleration Is Expressed By Newton 's Second Law Of Motion

- Investigating force and acceleration Background The relationship between force and acceleration is expressed by Newton’s second law of motion which states that “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. “ (The Physics Classroom, n.d.) This law can be expressed as the equation F= ma, where F is the net force, m is the mass and a is the acceleration....   [tags: Force, Mass, Newton's laws of motion]

When an object experiences a force it will move in the direction that the force has created until it experiences the opposite force which will cause it to stop. Newton went on to discover that when objects move in a circular motion that they want to move outwards, away from the centre but still carry on going in a circle. He called this force creating the above movement pattern Centripetal Force....   [tags: centripetal force, experiment]

The first law of Newton’s Laws is inertia. The basic definition of inertia is an object in motion will stay in motion until acted on by an outside force, as well as an object as rest will stay at rest until acted on by an outside force (Serwalt,...   [tags: inertia, accelaration, re-action]

We Learned About Linear Motion

- In chapter 3, we learned about linear motion. Linear motion is the motion of an object in a straight line. Moving objects must have a speed at which they travel, this is found by dividing the distance the object traveled by the time that it took to get there. Objects that travel in a straight line path need to have a speed and a direction, this is what is defined as velocity. Velocity can change by either an object 's speed or its direction changing. When velocity changes, it is called acceleration....   [tags: Classical mechanics, Mass, Energy, Force]
