Law of Motion
Oh no! I've been whisked away by the wind!

The wind left me here with the rest of my flower friends!
The Newton's First Law states that an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion with the same velocity unless acted on by an unbalanced force.
This is an example of Newton's First Law of Motion because there is an unbalanced force between the wind and the flower. Therefore, the flower will move because the wind has more force than the flower.
