Newton's First Law

The explanation behind the First Law of motion!

What is the definition for it anyways?

Well its simple: An object in rest stays at rest. An object in motion stays in motion at a constant speed in a straight line unless acted on by an external, unbalanced force.

Examples of Newton's First Law.

What is a balanced force?

An example of a balanced force is a concrete block on a flat surface with no movement what so ever.


What is an unbalanced force?

An example of an unbalanced force would be a women moving a desk, causing force and friction.


Example of Newton's First Law on an airplane.
