For one of my homework questions, I need to ask 2 to 3 people a question regarding Newton, then write an essay on it. Newton's First Law states that an object will move with a constant velocity if nothing acts on it (but I'm sure you all knew that). This seems to contradict our everyday experience that a moving object comes to a rest unless something acts to keep it going. Does this everyday experience contradict Newton's First Law? If it does not, explain how this experience is consistent with Newton's First Law. If it does, explain why we bother to teach Newton's First Law anyways. This may be easy for some of you, it was for me, but I'm supposed to ask so any different variety of answers would be appreciated.
