Newton's First Law of Motion

Definition of Newton's First Law of Motion

An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. The behavior of all objects left undisturbed can be described by saying that objects keep on doing what they're doing.
