We'll start with the First Law, concerning inertia. It states that a resting object will not move until an outside force moves it, and that a moving object will keep moving in a particular direction and at a particular speed until an outside force stops it, slows it down, or speeds it up.

Let's apply that to knock hockey. When you put the puck on the table, it will stay where it is until a player hits it with his stick. When the puck is moving, it'll keep moving in the direction it's going until it hits an obstacle (a wall, another player's stick, etc.). Another outside force acting on the moving puck is the friction between the table and the puck, which serves to slow the puck down.

### What are some examples of hockey and newtons laws?

An example of Newton's first law in hockey is when a hockey puck remains at rest until a player applies a force to set it in motion. Newton's second law can be seen when a player exerts a greater force when taking a slap shot, resulting in a higher acceleration of the puck. Newton's third law is demonstrated when players push off the ice with their skates to propel themselves in the opposite direction.

### Can a puck in ice hockey roll?

Yes. A hockey puck can and often does roll during a hockey game. I have played the game from an early age up through high school and a rolling puck is not easy to control. Your passes and shots will not be very accurate and very difficult for your teammate to receive. I would just reach down with my hand and knock it over. You need to be quick with this type of maneuver and if your opponents are slapping at with their sticks you won't be able to do it.
