Newton Test

Newton is love, Newton is life!!!

What is Newton's First Law? An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in motion remains in motion, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
According to Newton’s First Law of Motion, why would a student on roller skates eventually stop moving? Friction will stop the student on roller skates.
What is inertia? It is resistance to a change in motion. More massive objects have more inertia.
Why do roller coasters need to have a lap bar or shoulder bar? So the person riding the roller coaster doesn't fly out of the ride and stays seated.
Which boxes will move? Which boxes will not move? The boxes that will move are box 1, box 2, and box 3. The box that won’t move is box 4.
Show the net force calculation for each box. Box 1: 8N + 0N = 8N Box 2: 5N - 2N = 3N Box 3: 6N + 6N + 6N = 18N Box 4: 7N - 3N = 4N - 4N = 0N
What is Newton’s Second Law of Motion? Acceleration is produced when unbalanced forces act on a mass.
What is acceleration? What causes acceleration? Acceleration is a change in speed OR direction of motion. An unbalanced force causes acceleration.
What is Newton’s Third Law of Motion? For every action, there is an equal, but opposite reaction.
A basketball hits the floor with a force of 50N. What is the force and direction exerted by the floor on the ball? The floor hits back with a force up 50N but the direction is changed to upwards because of Newton’s Third Law.
What forces cause a rollerskater to move? A push off the ground backwards makes the wheels on a rollerskater to move.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
