This image gallery on Newton's Laws was compiled by the author of The Physics Classroom collection. It features photos that depict inertia in motion, interacting forces, balanced and unbalanced force, and action/reaction. The images are organized by specific sub-concept, and all are aligned with the corresponding section of The Physics Classroom online tutorial.

Editor's Note: This image set provides teachers with a way to connect physics with real world applications. It's appropriate for use in both middle school and high school physical science classrooms. The accompanying tutorial is intended for secondary teachers and high school physics students.  

The Physics Classroom is a set of resources created for learners and teachers of high school physics. It includes comprehensive tutorials, problem sets with solutions, extra help for struggling learners, Shockwave animations, multimedia learning modules, labs, and an annotated photo gallery.
