Newton’s three laws of motion discussion post

One initial discussion post and response to two other students with substantial content.

View the video “The Apple and the Moon,” video 8 from The Mechanical Universe and Beyond. In your own words describe Newton’s three laws of motion. Give an example that illustrates each law. What are the four fundamental forces of nature? How do these force related to the forces which we may encounter in every day life (string forces, contact forces, spring forces, frictional forces)? How do the three laws of motion differ from Newton’s other great achievement the Universal Law of Gravitation?

Be sure to provide substantive responses to at least two of your classmates. For instance a response referencing some specific point in the post to which you are responding is a substantive response. Another example of a substantive post is one which prompts your classmate to address some missed point of the discussion. As always responses such as, “Good Job,” and “I agree,” are considered non substantive and earn no points.
