1st law of motion

By: Shana Johnson


Objects at rest stay in rest, objects in motion stay in motion unless an external force acts on it.

How we use it

Newtons first law of motion is seen a lot as it applies to normal things in a day to day life

Driving a car is a very good example. The car is going to sit there not moving until i get in it and drive so unless i get in it and drive, the car will be at rest and stay at rest. Another example is me riding a bike, crashing into something and falling off. With me being somewhat of a clumsy person, this seems to happen rather quite often. Now yes the bike itself is moving and my legs are moving from peddling but my body would not be flying off the bike unless there was a force that moved me off that bike.
