Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

ANSWER: First of all, Newton’s law of inertia states that: Until an external force acts on the system, the motion of the system will be unaffected. Which means the object in rest will be at rest and the object in motion will continue it’s motion with same speed and same direction until an external force acts on it. But, for the case given in the question, after rolling the ball, the speed of the ball decreases slightly with time. But there was a condition in Newton’s...
