Newton’s Second Law of Motion

Newtons second law titleYesterday, we talked about Newton’s first law you probably guessed that today we would cover his second law! You would be right!

Newton’s Second Law: Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object).

We found this great video that illustrates Newton’s Second Law really well. Bravo to this science teacher. I did not have a bowling ball lying around so I am grateful for her illustration of Newton’s second law.
