How laws of motion affect humans?

Isaac Newton propounded the laws of motion to explain some certain concept in physics but the laws of motion is beyond that. It explains how object behave when they are standing still, when they are moving and when forces act upon them.

I will be explaining how the laws of motion affect us as human beings.

First Law: Law of Inertia

The law of inertia states that an object will remain at rest or in uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled to change its state by the action of an external force. The object represent we human beings.

Change won't happen except we move.

We won't get lucky by being in one place, we have to move and create our luck.

We will continue to be where we are except we change our thinking and move forward. Ditto, we will continue to move in the same direction except we are compelled to change our state.

How does external force affect our lives?

1. In the external environment lies knowledge. Develop yourself and change your state. Education is key to overcome the law of inertia.

2. Pressure and discouragement from friends, families and the society is enough for you to change your state and overcome the inertia.

3. Something most propel you to move and that's your purpose and meeting people's need. The needs of people is the external force that will propel you to overcome the inertia. What is inertia? Inertia is a state of rest.

Being realistic: A rubber band placed on a table will be on the table except you pick it up, stretches it before it becomes useful. It becomes useful as you can use it to band two objects or more, wear it on the wrist etc. We can only be useful as humans when we move away from our state of rest (Comfort Zone).

Second Law of Motion- Law of Acceleration. 

Newton's Second Law of Motion states that when a force acts on an object, it will cause the object to accelerate.

The larger the mass of the object, the greater the force will need to be to cause it to accelerate.

This implies having focus and directing your energy towards a particular goal and vision. The larger the mass, that is the more the focus, and forces put into what you do, your work, the faster your success. People will then feel like how did it happened. Focus and forces made the the difference.

What are the forces? You can not do it alone, you need people. The greater and bigger the dream, the more you need people to make it come to pass.

Third Law of Motion- Law of Action and Reaction

Newton's third law of motion states that for every action (force) in nature there is equal and opposite reaction.

This implies that the amount of labor you put into what you do is the amount of results you get. You cannot put little and expect bigger returns. You can put more and get more. So, your input is the results of your output.

Being realistic: You can't put little into the work you do and expect promotios or high returns. And you cannot be a member of a team and add little and be expecting greater recognition. You have to work to earn it.

Be inspired.

    Sir Kay taught me those! Thank you very much!!

  2. Hmmmmn... Inspiring Sir. Read through once again Sir and make necessary adjustment Sir.


    1. Okay. Will do that. Thank you very much. You can as well reach me personally for correction.

  3. This is an eye-opening article. You don't do little and expect much in returns, this is what I'm taking along with me in 2018 and beyond! Thank you for sharing, Kayode.

    1. You are welcome Ifeoluwa. I am glad you found it worthwhile.
