Tablecloth trick, illustration. If the crockery is heavy enough, rapidly pulling off the tablecloth can leave the plates and cups on the table, without spilling the contents. This trick is used to demonstrate the physical law of inertia. This law was defined by Isaac Newton as the tendency of an object to resist a change in motion, unless acted on by an external force.
