• Aristotle's Inertia And The Other Laws Of Motion
568 words
Centuries of thought and experimentation by several of the greatest minds to ever walk the earth have contributed to the awareness of this property of matter known as Inertia. It all began with the investigation of an ancient Greek scientist and philosopher by the name of Aristotle. Through countless observations and hypotheses, Aristotle grew almost certain of a few things involving motion. Aristotle's findings suggested mainly that Earthly objects seek their natural place at rest. This natural...
• Elastic Point On The Plastic Bag Strips
751 words
Hookes Law is when forces are applied to a solid object and it can result in extension or compression. Hookes Law is able to predict how a spring (or other stretchable object) would behave when force is applied to it. I aim to show how much force (N) strips of supermarket plastic bags will take before it reaches its elastic limit and whether the width of the strips can alter the results. I am going to do a simple experiment that involves cutting a plastic bag into strips which are all different ...
• Propels The Rocket In The Opposite Direction
465 words
A rocket in its simplest form is a chamber enclosing a gas under pressure. A small opening at one end of the chamber allows the gas to escape, and in doing so provides a thrust that propels the rocket in the opposite direction. Newton's laws can be used to explain this his laws in the simplest terms can be explained like this: First law- Objects at rest will stay at rest and objects in motion will stay in motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. Second law- Force is eq...
• Newton's Law Of Universal Gravitation Gravity
1,198 words
Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation Gravity if one of the four fundamental forces in the universe. Though the fundamental principles of it eluded scientists until Sir Isaac Newton was able to mathematically describe it in 1687 (Eddington 93). Gravity plays a serious part in everyday actions as it keeps everything on the ground; without gravity everything would be immobile unless a force was applied (then it would move infinitely because there would be no force to stop it). Perhaps, the best pl...
• F Force And M Mass
558 words
Newton's Three Laws of Motion We experience each of Sir Isaac Newton's laws everyday. In a car, pushing a car, or even in a fight. All of these laws have to do with motion. You can experience the first law in a stopping car, the second when you are a pushing a shopping cart, and the third one in the water. Newton's first law in laymen terms is "An object in motion tends to stay in motion, and an object at rest tends to stay at rest, unless the object is acted upon by an outside force". You would...
• Newton's Laws Of Motion
799 words
Sir Isaac Newton Sir Isaac Newton was considered one of the greatest scientists that ever lived. Along with his important discoveries, he figured out the exact laws of nature that made the Earth orbit the sun, the moon move around the Earth and how the tides ebb and flow. Another discovery was what creates the colors of a rainbow. Sir Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642 in Woolsthrope, Lincolnshire. When Galileo Galilei died, Newton would soon pick up his ideas of mathematical science of ...
• My Movement And The Specific Forces
918 words
10-28-04 Kinesiology Squats Versus Lunge The purpose of my project grade sheet is to get a better understanding of the movement I chose which was squats versus lunges. The body of my research paper will give the reader a better understanding of the following for my specific movement. Anatomy: The origin and insertions that are involved include the Gluteus- gluteus medius, gluteus maximus, Hamstrings- band, biceps femoris, , adductor magnus, gracilis, semi membranosus. Calves- Gastrocnemius, sole...
• Mass Times The Velocity Of The Object
927 words
Soda bottle rocketPurposeThe students will investigate the effect of the rocket length upon the distance of flight. The students will also investigate the mass upon the distance flight. Background The students will proof Newton's third law of motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton's third law also applies to rockets. A rocket gets its lift from the gases pushing out of its tail. The force of the rocket pushing on these gases is the action force. The g...
