Newtons First Law of Motion

An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force.


If a bowl is sitting on a table then that bowl won't move until something hits it.

If a car is rolling then it keeps rolling unless you hit the brakes or friction and gravity stops it.

Law 2, F = M x A

The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object).
