### What is it called when friction stops something from moving?

The frictional force needed to just stop something from moving is called limiting friction, and the object is said to be in limiting equilibrium.

### How friction affect the moving object?

Friction always want to retard the motion of a moving object. So friction slows down and finally stops a moving object.

### What is Galileo's principle of intertia?

an object that is moving will keep moving until something stops it

### What starts an object moving or stops it when it's already moving?

The only thing that can do that is force.

### What friction prevents an object from moving when a force is applied?

The friction produced that stops an object moving when force is applied is 'static friction'.

### When object stops when its force is used up?

A moving object stops when its force is used up. The resistance to change its motion is known as inertia.

### How often does sun move in sky?

The sun is always moving in the sky, it never stops. This is the result of the rotation of the Earth, which also never stops.

### An object that stops the flow of electricity is called?

An object that will stop the flow of a current is called a switch.

### What has 3 hands and never stops moving?

Sounds like a watch to me

### Why doesn't a moving object last forever?

A moving object stops moving due to friction. Friction may come from the surface on which it is rolling, the air through which it is moving, etc. Objects in a vacuum theoretically, will not stop moving until they run into something else.

### What is newtons first called?

Newton's First Law is called his First Law of Motion. It states that an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless influenced by something else that slows or stops its motion. Likewise, an object at rest - not moving - tends to stay at rest unless influenced by something else that starts it moving.
