Newton’s Law Of Motion!

Newton’s Laws Of Motion!

Law #1:The Law of inertia.

  • An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by unbalanced force.  An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

  • An example is when Mr. Commeret took a play car and a troll and put the troll in the car without a seatbelt. He pushed the car down and the troll fell out of the car.  Mr. Commeret then put a seatbelt on the troll and pushed the car and the troll stayed in the car.

* The amount of force makes it easier to push.


Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being  accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object.)

  • An example is when Ms. Stinson took a chair and pushed Abby around the room.  Abby tried to push Ms.Stinson and it was a little harder.

  • The chair moved because the mass was greater.

( Fuerza, Masa,Aceleración.)

Law#3: Force-Pairs.

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

  • An example is when Mr. Bouman took a balloon and blew it up and put it on a piece of string (on the ceiling) and then put a piece of tape around the balloon. Mr.Bouman let go of the balloon and the balloon went across the room. The air went out of the balloon and it pushed the balloon halfway across the room. The balloon went half way across the room because the air was coming out of one side and pushing the balloon to go half way across the room.

How does  what we learned apply to a pinball machine?

Something at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted on an outside force. What will make a difference in the different marble size?

  • We need a launcher in order for the steel ball to get launched.

  •  The large marble weighs more so it will go faster.

  • If we use a normal marble it will stay in place because it is lighter than the steel marble.

  • The bigger the marble= the more mass.

QUESTION: What will make a difference in the different marble size?


  • When you have the bigger marble it goes faster because the bigger marble has more mass.

  • For example… when you have a smaller marble it does not go as fast, because the smaller marble does not have any mass.

Marbles on a Ramp

Marbles on the Ramp


Kaiden Cook

What did you learn from the experiment?

What I learn from the experiment is that the marble will go faster if it has more mass.The gravity will pull the marble down the ramp faster if it has more mass.The little marble will go slower because it has less mass so it will go slower. If you raced three marbles the biggest one would win. The medium would come in second, and the small one would lose. The ramp was the same size. I  put each marble down the ramp five times.I timed the marbles and put them on a table and got the average. The biggest marble got 2.08 the medium got 2.12 and the small one got 2.14.A marble going down the ramp.

How does what you learn apply with the pinball machine?  

It applies with the ramp on the pinball machine because the marble will roll down the ramp. Gravity will pull it down faster so it will be harder to hit with the flippers.The gravity will pull the marble down the ramp so it won’t get stuck at the top of the ramp, and the person who’s playing can keep playing the pinball machine.

This experiment context to when I once went snowboarding. I went down the hill at school, and gravity pulled me down to the bottom just like the gravity pulled down the marble on the ramp. It also context to when I went sledding down the hill at school I got pulled down by gravity and I gained speed as I was going down the hill again just like the marble on the ramp.  I also found out why I go farther when my brother Mason gets on the sled with me. More mass=farther disdains.
