Copyright © by Holt, Rinehart and Winston. All rights reserved. ResourcesChapter menu Chapter 4 Newton’s First Law An object at rest remains at rest, and an object in motion continues in motion with constant velocity (that is, constant speed in a straight line) unless the object experiences a net external force. In other words, when the net external force on an object is zero, the object’s acceleration (or the change in the object’s velocity) is zero. Section 2 Newton’s First Law

ResourcesChapter menu Chapter 4 Net Force Newton's first law refers to the net force on an object.The net force is the vector sum of all forces acting on an object. The net force on an object can be found by using the methods for finding resultant vectors.

ResourcesChapter menu Chapter 4 Inertia Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist being moved or, if the object is moving, to resist a change in speed or direction. Newton’s first law is often referred to as the law of inertia because it states that in the absence of a net force, a body will preserve its state of motion. Mass is a measure of inertia.

The illustration shows how one type of shoulder harness operates. When the car suddenly slows down, inertia causes the large mass under the seat to continue moving, which activates the lock on the safety belt. Section 2 Newton’s First Law

Objects that are either at rest or moving with constant velocity are said to be in equilibrium. Newton’s first law describes objects in equilibrium. Tip: To determine whether a body is in equilibrium, find the net force. If the net force is zero, the body is in equilibrium. If there is a net force, a second force equal and opposite to this net force will put the body in equilibrium. Section 2 Newton’s First Law

To apply the condition of equilibrium in the vertical direction, you need to account for all of the forces in the y direction: F g, F n, and F applied,y. You know F applied,y and can use the box’s mass to find F g. F applied,y = 45.0 N F g = (20.0 kg)(9.81 m/s 2 ) = 196 N Next, apply the equilibrium condition,  F y = 0, and solve for F n.  F y = F n + F applied,y – F g = 0 F n + 45.0 N – 196 N = 0 F n = –45.0 N + 196 N = 151 N Tip: Remember to pay attention to the direction of forces.
