- Isaac Newton's three laws of motion have been the foundation for the study of dynamics

since 1687. They have withstood the test of time. Scientists have yet to find any

evidence that does not support his laws. For this assignment, you will use your own

creativity to come up with three demonstrations, one for each of Newton's Laws. Your

demonstrations can be recorded and sent as a short video or explained in writing with

accompanying still photos.

Student demonstrates Newton's First Law that

indicates a clear and accurate understanding of

the scientific principles.

Student demonstrates Newton's Second Law

that indicates a clear and accurate

understanding of the scientific principles.

Student demonstrates Newton's Third Law that

indicates a clear and accurate understanding of

the scientific principles./nTask 2) (25 pts)

- You have likely been taught that the "opposite" of centripetal force is called the

centrifugal force. Instead of a "center seeking" force, centrifugal means "center fleeing".

The term is used to explain why you feel that you are moving towards the outside of the

circle when you drive around a curve.

Your assignment is to answer the question: Is centrifugal force a real force? You will

have to do some research on your own to come up with a position. Then, write a

one-page essay stating your position, providing evidence to back up your stated

position. Make sure your evidence is specific enough to address the question, as well as

explain how it shows support for your position.

Includes 3 or more pieces of evidence (facts,

statistics, examples, real-life experiences) that

support the position statement. The writer

anticipates the reader's concerns, biases or

arguments and has provided at least 1 counter-

argument.

All the evidence and examples are specific,

relevant and explanations are given that show how

each piece of evidence supports the author's

position.

5 points All supportive facts are reported accurately./nDo your own research on Kepler's laws and answer these questions in a well-detailed way.
