Motion Quizzes & Trivia

Did you know that Buddhism managed to summarize an entire field of physics in only one word?! It’s called karma. You may recognize the statement from a movie, but it is actually true. Newton's Third Law of Motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And that’s not all he managed to pull on motion.

“What are the ‘imperceptible’ human motions, and how many are there?”, “What set of principles describe the physical reality at an atomic level of matter?”, “What is the Heisenberg uncertainty principle?”, and “What part of physics deals with the study of motion at a macroscopic level?” are just some of the questions from these quizzes that even Newton stopped to ponder. And so, if you think you can take him, start by taking on these quizzes.
