Newtons first law

Part A
I learned about newtons first law which is "An abject at rest tends to stay at rest and an abject in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force." I also learned how to draw Free body diagrams,calculate different types of forces like normal force and frictional force and some others. I also learned about equilibrium which is if the vector sum of the forces acting on the object is equal to zero.
The difficult part about this is trying to find the equation that fits with the free body diagram and calculating the forces is a little confusing. And the best part that I do very well id drawing free body diagrams.

Part B
The only connection that i can really make with this is inertia. Another is finding the normal force of an abject at rest or the frictional force of an object sliding on the ground.


  1. Please check your spelling! Object not abject!
    Other than that your reflection is very good.

    On the other hand, ii is not clear how you have connected learning in the class to everyday life. Please elaborate more on this section.

  2. I would rewrite the last sentence it is a little confusing what you are trying to say. Also I agree with Ms. Gende, you need to connect what we have learned in class to everyday life. When saying what is difficult for you, maybe go into more depth about why you found it hard and how you would do those things. Like how to you find what equation to use and since you found it confusing were there any tricks that helped you figure out the correct one. Otherwise great reflection!

  3. Good part A. I would rephrase part B because I didn't really understand the point that you were trying to convey. Also proofread because there are a lot of spelling mistakes. All in all, good reflection.

  4. thorough and an overall good reflection, like the other commenters above, Part B should be revised.
