Newton’s Law Quiz: What Are Newton's Laws Of Motion?

Sir Isaac Newton, born 1643 and died 1727, was an English physicist and mathematician.The discoveries this man made were substantial contributions to physics and math. Publishing his famous book “Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy” in 1687, served as the first appearance for Newton’s laws. Also known as the three laws of motion, they are still used today in physics and engineering to describe movement. Classical mechanics got its start with these laws, which then led to be a major influence on the scientific revolution. How much do you remember? Take this quiz now!

What is the unit of force according to the SI system?

  • Kilogram

  • Newton

  • Meter

  • Second

What is Newton's first law of motion?

  • An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by a net force.

  • The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it.

  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

  • None of the above.

What is the formula for force?

  • Force = mass x acceleration

  • Force = acceleration / mass

  • Force = mass / acceleration

  • Force = work / time

What is Newton's third law of motion?

  • An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by a net force.

  • The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it.

  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

  • None of the above.

What is the formula for calculating acceleration?

  • Acceleration = force / mass

  • Acceleration = mass / force

  • Acceleration = change in velocity / change in time

  • Acceleration = change in distance / change in time

Which law of motion explains how rockets are able to lift off the ground?

  • Newton's first law

  • Newton's second law

  • Newton's third law

  • None of the above.

Which type of force opposes motion between two surfaces that are in contact?

  • Friction

  • Tension

  • Gravity

  • Electromagnetic

Which law of motion is also known as the law of inertia?

  • Newton's first law

  • Newton's second law

  • Newton's third law

  • None of the above.

Which law of motion explains why it is difficult to push a heavy object?

  • Newton's first law

  • Newton's second law

  • Newton's third law

  • None of the above.

What is Newton's second law of motion?

  • An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by a net force.

  • The force acting on the body is equal to the product of its mass and acceleration.

  • For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

  • None of the above.
