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.

Example of the Law

Newton's law states that an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon an external force. This soccer ball will not move from its position unless someone were to kick it. Therefor, if the ball were to be kicked, it would only stop when either a player, goal net, or the forces of friction and gravity affects it.
