The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Which situations below are examples of Newton's First Law? a) Your herd jerking back when car accelerates rapidly. b) Hitting shoe on wall to knock off snow. c) An apple hanging motionless on a tree. d) All of the above I know newton's first law states that objects in motion stay in motion and objects at rest tend to stay at rest; the law essentially describes inertia. The only situation I am absolutely sure about is a but according to the answer key the answer is d. I guess b could work, the shoe stops but snow keeps moving but I am not sure. Any clarification would help me greatly. Thanks.
