A ball is rolling across the top of a billiard table and slowly rolls to a stop. How would Galileo explain the motion of the ball as it stopped?
a)The ball's natural state is at rest =b)The ball stopped because it ceased to be pushed
c)The ball stopped due to external forces such as friction

the ball's natural state is at rest
