What Are Some Examples of Natural Laws?
Some examples of natural laws include but are not limited to the Laws of Thermodynamics (such as the law that states energy can be transformed from one form to another but cannot be destroyed or spontaneously created) and Newton’s Laws of Motion (such as the law that states an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by another force). Natural laws are determined by fundamental physical, chemical and biological forces of nature.
The First Law of Thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, but rather can be transformed from one form to another. The amount of energy in the universe remains stagnant, and simply changes into different forms based on certain reactions and occurrences.
The Second Law of Thermodynamics refers to the law of entropy, which states that the potential energy of an object during a given state will always be less than the amount of energy the object during the initial state, as long as no energy is introduced or removed from the object.
Newton’s First Law of Motion states that an object in motion remains in motion unless acted upon by another object or force.
Newton’s Second Law of Motion refers to the calculation of dynamics, F=ma, which states that the force of an object (F) will be equal to the mass of the object (m) multiplied by the object’s acceleration (a).
Newton’s Third Law of Motion states that every action will have an equal and opposite reaction.
