I. Abstract- II. Introduction- Isaac Newton discovered three laws involving acceleration. Newton states in his 2 nd Law, that if there is a non-zero net force on an object then the acceleration is proportional. The equation derived by Isaac Newton is as follows, Net Force=Mass*Acceleration , which can also be written as Acceleration=Net Force/ Mass. Clearly, if acceleration equals zero, either mass or net force would also have to equate to zero. Because everything in our world has a mass, net forces would have to cancel. In this we learn that in order for acceleration to occur on an object there must be a net force on that object. According to Newton’s 1 st Law, if there is no net force, objects will either remain at rest or in motion. Therefore, without acceleration everything around us would either be immovable or unstoppable. Acceleration is everywhere around us we just don’t ever stop to think about it. A ball being thrown in baseball is accelerated in four different ways. First, the initial force of the throw speeds up the ball. Second, gravity begins to
