If an object floats in space, there must be some force acting on it according to Newton's First Law of Motion. What is that?

Expert Answer:

Dear student
No force is required because force is required only when the momentum of the body has to change.
And, a/c to first law of motion the object will continue to float unless acted upon by an external force.
We hope this clarifies your doubt.
