Keep Moving Forward

By: Ka'Leila Abrille

Newton's First Law

  • This law states that an object at rest will remain at rest, an object in motion will remain in motion at a constant velocity, unless an unbalanced force acts upon it.
  • This law basically states that objects that aren't moving will stay still until another force pushes or pulls them into moving. Also objects that are already in motion will keep moving at a constant velocity until another force slows it down, stops it, or changes its direction.

Inertia

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object and its state of motion including changes to its speed and direction or the state of rest. It's the tendency of objects to keep moving in a straight line at a constant velocity.
