# Force and Motion Webquest

Introduction

WELCOME PHYSICISTS

​We are going to learn about the forces and the man who discovered them, Sir Isaac Newton. Force is just a fancy word for pushes and pulls. Forces all around us, all the time and there are laws that govern the way forces act.

Good Luck and May the Force Be With You!

Step 2: Answer the following questions using this website.

• Write 3 interesting facts about Sir Isaac Newton.
•
•
•
• Using the 1st Law of Motion, explain why the man in the blue car hits the wall. Andno, it’s not just because he isn’t wearing his seatbelt.
• Restate the second law in your own words or make an illustration describing it.
• Give a simple example of Newton’s 3rd Law.
