Dirty Dancing to Newton's Second Law

Newton's Second Law explains the amount of acceleration depends on both force and the mass. For example one of my favorite movies is "Dirty Dancing", at the end of the movie the character "Baby" does this big move where she has to run into here partner's hands and he has to hold her up for balance in the air. As she puts more speed and force on the ground when she's running , it's all working towards how high she would be able to jump and get blance in the air. Thatis one of my favorite parts in the movie.

Handstand on Newton's Thrid Law

O.K. Newton's Third Law is when every acti0n there is an equal and opposite reaction. So with all th focre you put on an object , there's going to be an opposite reaction. Example There's dance move call the handstand. It's when you put your whole body force on one of your hands and the reaction is your hand is going to put force on your body so you can go back to standing position. Pretty Cool Don't You Think!

Tippy Teo to Newton's First law

Your probably thinking," How am I suppose to know what Newton's First Law is "? Well to summarize, Newton's first law involves with an object in motion and staying in motion . Also the object stays at the same speed and in the same direction. Take this move for an example the ballerina elevates on her toe's and has to move at the same speed to keep her blances. She is also in motion and stay's in motion until it's time for her next move.

Hello, It's Me!

My name is Samantha , From the S to the A to the M for short and dancing is my thing. I am here to talk about how dance is involved with physics. Now your probably thinking "What does dance have to with anything of physics". Well, I do have a couple of dance moves that I can relate to physics , come check me out ...
