Trivia: Newton’s first law states that an object at rest does what?
Remains at rest
Has a mass of zero
Has infinite potential energy
Cannot be affected by gravity
Correct Answer: Remains at rest
So why is this answer correct? : Sir Isaac Newton is famous for his Laws of Motion. His first law says an object will remain at rest until an external force acts upon it. For example, a rock will remain at rest until it is pushed, pulled, or kicked. This law also says that an object in motion stays at a constant speed and in a straight line until an external force acts upon it.
