  • Newton's First Law of Motion
  • Why is the ball not moving?
  • According to Newton's First Law the ball needs some sort of outside FORCE in order for the ball to move.
  • OK, so when this wind hits the ball it moves because the wind is an outside force.
  • Correct, the wind is an outside force.
  • Well if the wind made it go forward why did it not fly up?
  • The ball didn't fly up because it didn't have enough LIFT to overcome the WEIGHT of the ball.
  • Now try rolling this heavy metal ball it has much more INERTIA so it will roll much further.
  • Wow, that really did go much further.
  • Still much more to learn but you now understand Newton's first law.
