# Newton's Three Laws of Motion

### By: Logan Coddington

Sir Isaac Newton was born on January 4th 1643 and died on March 1st 1727. In that time he attended Cambridge University of England. He made perhaps some of the most monumental discoveries in science. His most famous being his Laws of Motion.

# Newton First Law of Motion

The first law of motion states that an object in motion, will stay in motion, while an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon b an unbalanced force. What this means is that if a soccer ball is set on the ground, it will no move until gravity pulls it down hill, or the soccer player kicks it.

# Newton's Third Law of Motion

This law states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. This was proven y "Newton's Cradle". Or as I searched for on Google, Newton's balls. I was extremely hesitant on starting my image search on that. Lucky for me, they are commonly called Newton's balls. How this demonstration works, is you pull one of the side balls and let go. This demonstrates that even though there are as many as five solid steel balls in the middle, the outside balls never stop moving or losing any energy.
