Newtons 1st law of motion

1st Law of Motion

Object at rest stays at rest, objects in motion stay in motion, unless on external force acts on it. All objects resist changes in their state of motion, they tend to continue to do what their doing. There is are important conditions that must be met for the first law to work, as long as the forces aren't unbalanced the first law of motion applies

how this law occurs in our everyday life

There are many applications of newton's first law. Many experiences occur in an automobile. Starting a car from rest or while bringing a car to rest from a state of motion. Experiencing inertia while an automobile is coming to a stop is another example of newtons first law. The force of the road on the locked wheels provides the unbalanced force to change the cars state of motion, yet there is no unbalanced force to change your own state of motion. A person in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by the unbalanced force of a seat belt.
