Law of Inertia - First Law of Motion ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The law of inertia is the first out of three in Newton's law of motion. Newton’s first law states that an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. An example of this could be pulling off a band-aid very fast. If you pull the band-aid off fast enough, your skin will remain at rest due to inertia. The force will pull the band-aid off. <See video> Law of Force and Acceleration - Second Law of Motion ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The second law of motion is force and acceleration. The second law states the relationship between the change in the speed of a moving object and the force acting upon it (Newton's second law of motion). An example of this is riding a bike. Your bike is the mass and your leg muscles pushing on the pedals is the force. As you push on your bicycle pedals your bike accelerates. The greater the mass of the object being accelerated, the greater the amount of force needed to accelerate the object.
