Unit 1 Discussion 2: Acceleration, Newton's 3rd Law & Momentum
In this unit you are learning about the concepts related to objects in motion. It’s important to not only understand these fundamental concepts but apply them.
Use the Internet or ECPI Online Library to find at least ONE professional or scholarly source that discusses how one of the following is applied or observed in the real world:
Force and acceleration
Newton's Third Law of Motion
These topics are in operation nearly every time an object moves, so finding a real-world application where they are relevant should not be too difficult. You may even be able to find research related to your field of study.
Please include the following in your initial post:
Provide a brief summary of your research.
Explain how the research illustrates the concept(s) you are discussing.
Discuss any ethical or practical considerations that might arise from this application of the concept. These might include (but are not limited to) environmental impact, safety concerns, or issues of effectiveness.
Your summary must be in your own words.
Be sure to cite your source(s) and include the URL.
Note: Do not choose an application very similar to one already chosen by a classmate.
HINT for finding information: When performing a search, input the words "Technology using" or "Applications of" _________ (type in the concept) in the search box of a search engine). Some possible sources to search:
For applications of concepts related to bodies in motion, you may even find related articles in more mainstream media focused on athletics or law enforcement.
Post significant responses to at least two of your classmates. Discuss their research and the ethical considerations. A simple "I agree with you" WILL NOT be enough to earn credit. Your replies need to be detailed and in-depth. Because this is a college course, you are required to post thorough, well-conceived responses.
