What are some examples of newtons 1st law of motion?
Something in motion tends to remain in motion, something at rest tends to stay at rest. When you throw a baseball, it doesn’t just fall straight down out of your hand, it follows the motion you’ve imparted to it. When you take your foot off the accelerator, your car continues traveling in the same direction, slowing gradually through friction, and if you want to stop it you have to use the brakes. But a golf ball sitting on a tee will just sit there until something comes along to impart some motion to it. A car sitting on a flat, level surface will just sit until you start the engine and drive it away.
