Dear Student

If an object is in a state of motion, then as per Newton’s first law of motion in the absence of any external force acting on it, the object will maintain its motion along a given straight line. So the object will have displacement. However, if the object is initially at rest then there can be no displacement, the work done by person is zero.


Thanks
