Newton's First Law

Oh my gosh! I didn't look at the website because I thought that our only homework was to do the lab and other homework. I am SO incredibly sorry, Mrs. Gende.

I learned that for something to move it has to have a force behind it be it gravity, normal, friction force etc. I found remembering which force is which difficult but making the diagrams came easy to me. Being a neat and organized person my drawings are easy for me to understand which aids in my comprehension of the material. However some of when there is more than one normal force I find that a bit confusing! This can be seen in everyday life because we do not float around in the atmosphere! Due to gravitational force we and other objects, stay put on the ground. Okay, thanks for reading. Again, I am SO very sorry that this is so late. I am so sorry.


  1. Thanks for checking the hwk site!
    I would like for you to clarify your posting.
    You said that forces are needed to keep an object in motion. Is that always the case? How about the concept of translational equilibrium? how is that related to the net force?

    Also,don't forget to answer Part B of the reflection: your connection to an everyday experience.

  2. I think you forgot to write about the second part "Part B: Answer the following question:
    Can you make any connection(s) between what we studied and everyday life, history, situations in the world, any other subject you are studying or your own life?"'
