Newton’s First Law of Motion – Physics Limerick Writing Month (PhyLiWriMo) 2

Newton’s law number 1 is the source
For an object not feeling a force
Keeps its speed in a line
Staying still’s also fine
It won’t ever alter its course

I’m not entirely happy with the two short lines here, but I don’t think it’s a bad effort for explaining Newton’s First Law of Motion:

In an inertial reference frame, an object either remains at rest or continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a net force.[

I’d say that this doesn’t bode well for the more complicated Second Law of Motion, apart from the fact I’ve already written that one too!


This post is part of my attempt to post a physics limerick every day in November. Previous posts:
