5. Newton's 1st Law
1. a Newton's law that states that everybody continues in its state of uniform motion in a right line unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it
2. b states that an object continues in its state of rest or of uniform motion unless compelled to change that state by an external force
3. c a general suggestion to find this width is to assume a standing position with feet hip width apart and on foot slightly in front of the other. Consider this when striving for optimum body mechanics
