## Describe Newton’s first law of motion and give an application of this law in automotive theory.

Expert Solution
To determine

Newton’s first law of motion with an application in terms of automotive theory.

Newton’s first law of motion or Newton’s law of inertia: “Every object in its state of rest or uniform motion(Acceleration is zero) in a straight line unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed on it”.

### Explanation of Solution

When an object is in rest or motion, that object will always be in rest or motion until an external force work on that object.

Example: Assume a car is in rest, the car will be in rest until the force applied. Now the car is moving, and this car will be moving until the force applied on it.

Conclusion:

Newton’s first law of motion is working every condition when any object is in rest or trying to rest.
