When riding your dirt bike you run into a tree which causes your bike to immediately come to a stop. You fly over the handle bars and land a few feet away on the ground. Which law of motion is being described in this scenario?

2 Answer

  • Newton's first law (Law of inertia):

    A body will continue in its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless compelled by an external force to act otherwise.

    In this scenario, your bike stopped moving, but you continued moving :)

    Hope this helps!
