The Newton’s First Law of Motion Quiz tests your understanding of the Law of Inertia. This quiz also measures your expertise regarding the different theories surrounding Newton’s First Law of Motion.
1. Newtons First Law of Motion is also called:
a.The acceleration of a body is proportional
b.The law of inertia
c.The nature of forces
d.For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Last improved on 1/17/2013 at 5:18:10 PM

2. What does the first law of motion state?
a.An object at rest does not tend to stay at rest and an object in motion does not tend to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
b.An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion does not tend to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
c.An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an external force.
d.An object at rest does not tend to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

3. The law of inertia predicts:
a.The behavior of stationery objects
b.The tendency of a body to maintain its state of motion
c.The behavior of moving objects
d.The behavior of speeding objects

4. The general formulation of the law of inertia was devised by:
a.Galileo
b.Confucius
c.Albert Einstein
d.Thomas Edison
Last improved on 8/29/2012 at 3:08:43 AM by mikayla
5. Galileo used the law of inertia to explain:
a.Why we are pulled in the opposite direction when we pull an object
b.Why we do not feel the earths motion
c.Why the acceleration of objects is directly proportional to the force causing it
d.Why when we exert our weight on the floor, the floor exerts an equal force on us
Last improved on 11/9/2012 at 10:42:16 AM
6. Which of the following depicts the first law of motion?
a.The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force causing it.
b.Every body remains at rest unless it is compelled to change that state by a force acting upon it.
c.Every body moves with constant velocity in a straight line unless it is compelled to change that state by a force acting upon it.
d.The distance which the object traverses is directly proportional to the square of time.
7. What do we call the force of two surfaces in contact or the force of a medium acting on a moving object?
a.Heat
b.Acceleration
c.Friction
d.Energy
8. Who is the philosopher who lived in China and said that the cessation of motion is due to the opposing force; if there is no opposing force, the motion will never stop?
a.Aristotle
b.Mozi
c.Newton
d.Confucius
9. Who, in the 16th century, argued that the earth and everything on it was in fact never “at rest” but was actually in constant motion around the sun?
a.Galileo Galilee

a.Isaac Newton
b.Johannes Kepler
c.Galileo Galilee
d.Albert Einstein
11. Where did Isaac Asimov quote that “This tendency for motion (or for rest) to maintain itself steadily unless made to do otherwise by some interfering force can be viewed as a kind of "laziness," a kind of unwillingness to make a change.”?
a.Understanding Physics
b.Understanding Motion
c.Understanding Inertia
d.Understanding Friction
12. In the equation P=mv where P stands for momentum and v stands for velocity, what does the factor m represent?
a.Inertial force
b.Frictional mass
c.Inertial mass
d.Momentum
13. what is our galaxy's name?
a.candybar
b.milkyway
c.meatball
d.m&m
14. Which scientist found the law of motions ?
a.Albert
b.Newton
c.Filter
d.clerk
15. What is inertia?
a.the object's tendency to keep doing what it's doing (stay at rest or stay in motion)
b.get faster and faster
c.direction and momentum
d.speed

What others think about Newton's First Law of Motion
By: Pablo Escobar on Mar 20, 2013
  Newton's First Law of Motion tells that if there's no outter force, the object will keep being as the same state of motion.
By: john on Mar 19, 2013
  didnt have time to finish so checked it now
By: carmondie on Jan 29, 2012
  Galilao was the person that first thought of this idea
By: sakeena on Jun 6, 2011
  its good
By: ASstronaut on Mar 21, 2011
  how does newton's 1st law work in space? Thats what i want to know
By: Sakura on Sep 19, 2010
  IT should be a better quiz
By: Katie on May 13, 2010
  Newton's First Law of Motion is when an object is at rest it tends to stay at rest. When an object is in motion it tends to stay in motion until an outside force acts upon it. It travels in straight lines and at a constant speed.
By: KasturiRangan on Mar 23, 2010
  It's good to participate in a quiz totally based on Newtons 1st law of motion...
By: Garrett Biehle on Oct 19, 2009
  The word "inertia", as a noun, is meaningless. At least, no one I have asked as been able to tell me what it means. What are its units? "It's not a quantity; it's a property of matter. Inertia is the tendency not to change motion." Do somethings have inertia and other things not?
By: Santiago Mendoza on Oct 18, 2009
  The first law of motion is the easiest, and shortest. The inertia explains what happens in a car crash, and why you have to use seat belt. When the car moves, you are moving with him, but when it suddenly crashes, you dont stop, and your body continues as if the car was still moving.
By: shaggy on Sep 15, 2009
  its awsome
By: Genevieve on Sep 14, 2009
  Sir Isaac really was a genious.
By: pallavi on Jun 10, 2009
  newtons first is divided into two categories - 1. definition of inertia and; 2 . definition of force.
By: dark knight on May 4, 2009
  it is good it has many questions and information but it is so easy, by the way i enjoyed this fun.
By: nour on May 4, 2009
  *inertia depends on mass. *galillio was killed because of this idea. *his pupil isaaq newton continued after him. *friction helps in decreasing inertia
