The law that is being focused in is Newton’s first law, often called “Newton’s first law of inertia”. Newton’s first law is commonly stated as “An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted on by an outside force.” Put simply, an object that is moving will keep moving in the same direction and the same speed unless another force acts upon it and an object that isn’t moving won’t start moving unless there is another force that acts upon it. Inertia is the term that scientist use to describe the way that objects resist change in its motion. Inertia is directly related to an objects mass. The greater the mass of an object, the more inertia it has In other words, the heavier an object, the more resistant it...
