Newton’s 1st Law


Today, we began our study of Newton’s Laws, beginning with his first law. We defined it as “An object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.” We then went through a PowerPoint (posted below) that discussed some of the intricacies within the law as well as provided several examples. I also like to mix in several demos (see video above) including: the quarter snatch, the penny on the playing card, the flying yo-yo,  the beaker and the paper, and the egg tower.
