NEWTON’S FIRST LAW ● the most profound change in understanding the universe up to his time ● developed in the 1660s when the plague was sweeping thru Europe - again ● not published for almost 20 years ● perhaps a true law of nature ● objects at rest stay at rest ● objects in motion stay in motion, unless acted on by an outside force ● the first was common sense ● the 2nd was revolutionary ● the natural state of anything… what it will do if you leave it alone… is uniform motion ○ constant speed in a straight line ● moving uniformly feels like being at rest ● you can’t feel motion, only changes in motion ● there is no such thing as centrifugal force = term comes from misunderstanding the first law
