Physical Science: Newton’s Laws of Motion
Newton’s first law- An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Newton’s second law- An object will only accelerate or negatively accelerate if there is a net or unbalanced force acting upon it; changing its speed, its direction, or both. THINK: riding over roots and rocks, around trees, through corners, up and down switchbacks.
