What is the law?
1st Law of motion “The law of inertia”


Where can we see it?

An object at rest will This law is the reason you remain at rest unless should always wear your acted on by an seatbelt!! unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. Acceleration is Everyone knows that produced when a force heavier objects require acts on a mass. The more force to move the greater the mass (of same distance as the object being lighter objects. accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object). For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action. That is to say that whenever an object pushes another object it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard.
