    Q. A person’s body is thrown outward as a car rounds a curve on a highway.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 3
    30 seconds
    Q. Rockets are launched into space using jet propulsion where exhaust accelerates out from the rocket and the rocket accelerates in an opposite direction.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 4
    30 seconds
    Q. A picture is hanging on a wall and does not move.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 5
    30 seconds
    Q. A person not wearing a seatbelt flies through a car window when someone slams on the breaks because the person’s body wants to remain in continuous motion even when the car stops.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 6
    30 seconds
    Q. Pushing a child on a swing is easier than pushing an adult on the same swing, because the adult has more inertia.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 7
    30 seconds
    Q. Pushing a child on a swing is easier than pushing an adult on the same swing, because the adult has more inertia.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 8
    30 seconds
    Q. 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).
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 9
    30 seconds
    Q. An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an 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.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 10
    30 seconds
    Q. This law is often called "the law of inertia."
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 11
    30 seconds
    Q. A soccer ball accelerates more than a bowling ball when thrown with the same force.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 12
    30 seconds
    Q. A student leaves a pencil on a desk and the pencil stays in the same spot until another student picks it up.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 13
    30 seconds
    Q. Two students are in a baseball game. The first student hits a ball very hard and it has a greater acceleration than the second student who bunts the ball lightly.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 14
    30 seconds
    Q. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
    None of them
  • Question 15
    30 seconds
    Q. The swimmer moves her hand down and to the left and her body goes forward to the right.
    answer choices
    Newton's 1st Law
    Newton's 2nd Law
    Newton's 3rd Law
  • Question 16
    30 seconds
    Q. A rocket is sent into space.  When the power dies out, the rocket will just keep floating and moving in space forever (unless an unbalanced force, such as a meteor, runs into it).
