Getting to know Inertia

By: Julia Sibert


Newton's first law..... Law of Inertia

The law states~ a object will stay at rest, and a object in motion will remain in motion at a constant velocity unless an unbalanced force acts upon it.

What's Inertia ?

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion. This meaning change in speed, direction, or state of at rest.


Inertia can be found anywhere! Do not be surprised if you are just rollerblading along the side walk and unexpectingly come across one of those rises in the sidewalk that make it uneven and you fall. Your feet would stop but your upper body would keep going..... Thanks Inertia. The rise in the side walk is your unbalancing force.
