Name: Introduction to Newton's 1st Law of Motion
Category: Dynamics
Submitter: FizziksGuy

Learn about Newtonâ€™s First Law of Motion with two examples shown. Plus, I snuck in some free body diagrams and subtle hints at Newtonâ€™s Second and Third Laws as well. Thank you so much to Mrs. Zeller for being a Flipping Physics Correspondent!
