Inertia (It's Unstoppable)

What is Newton's First Law?

An object at rest will remain at rest, and an object at motion will remain at motion at a constant velocity, unless an unbalanced force acts upon it.

What is Inertia?

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion including changes to its speed and direction or the state of rest. For example, in the picture below, when the piece of paper is flicked off, the clothespin falls into the cup instead of falling off with the piece of paper.
