Newton's First Law of Motion
By: Santiago Rubio
Example of the Law
Definition: Newton's law states that an object remains at a state of rest or uniform motion unless acted upon an external unbalanced force.
When a hockey puck is hit with a strong force it will continue to slide unless another hockey player blocks it. The only frictional force that would oppose the puck is the ice. The ice would give sliding friction to the puck, however, it is not very effective.
