Motion

Newton's 1st Law of Motion

This law states that an object at rest remains at rest and an object in motion stays in motion unless acted on by an unbalanced force. Our car would not move unless we pushed it. It would keep moving until we or the table stopped it.

Newton's 2nd Law

This law states that the acceleration of an object depends on its mass and the force acting on it. If we had a bigger car, then it would move slower. If we had two cars and we pushed one a lot harder than the other, then it would go farther.

Newton's 3rd Law

This law states that all forces act in pairs. If we did not stop our car, then friction would. The car and the friction push against each other making the car move.

The forces are friction, push, gravity, and wind. They are unbalanced.
