Newtons Laws Worksheet.
Directions: Look up each web address and either fill in the blank or answer the question about
1. We have an intuitive idea of what a "force" is. We may think of a force as a
2. That is the very ________________________that is described by Newton's First Law. An object
continues in motion simply because it was in motion if there are no forces acting on it to change its
3. A force of _________ unit will give an object of 1.0 kg mass an acceleration of 1.0 m/s/s ; this
force is known as: ONE NEWTON (1.0 N) 1 N = ( 1 kg ) ( 1 m/s/s )
4. A surface can always supply a ___________force, perpendicular to the surface. However, a
surface quite often also supplies a fiction force parallel to the plane. Friction forces always oppose
the motion -- or prevent the motion.
1. Examples in the "inertia" section state____________________________________.
2. "How is force measured?" section states __________________________________
3. Answer the Force Challenge! Section question

1. A rocket in its simplest form is a ___________________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.
2. If you are ___________in a chair, you can be said to be at rest.
2. An __________________must be exerted for a rocket to lift off from a launch pad or for a craft in
space to change speed or direction (first law)
1. The law of inertia is most commonly experienced when_________________.
2. What happens to the guy in the car and the wall picture?
3. If the motorcycle were to___________, then the rider in motion would continue in motion.
4. What happens to the ladder in the ladder and truck picture?
