In the first law of motion it is said that when an object is moving, it may continue to move in the same speed and direction. The act of an object to continue to movie in a straight direction, or to remain motionless is called inertia. For example if you kick a soccer ball, and with the pressures and forces of gravity and air resistance, the ball will push itself through the air, and the air will then make it slow down. Gravity and friction are both very unbalanced forces, so they could possibly affect the objects way of motion. "Newton's first law of motion states that an object at rest will remain at rest and an object moving at a constant velocity, unless it is acted upon by an unbalanced force"(Jones 51). An object that is bouncing, rolling, or just moving in general or just staying still, the object will not stop at any change to its motion. As seen as an example from the video below. In the Newton's first law there is something called inertia. Inertia is the trend of an object to withstand an adjustment in motion. An example of inertia is adding mass to something like a ball. When the ball is rolling when you add mass to the ball it will make it harder to stop later.

Newton's Second Law:
"The second law of motion says that larger the force on an object, the faster the object will go. When an object is moving the acceleration is proportional to the force when it starts acting on the object. "According to Newton's second law of motion, acceleration depends on the object's mass and on the net force acting on the object" (Jones 52). The change in the objects velocity will be directly proportional to the greatness of the force that is added to the object. The object's velocity will change if you push or pull on it. The object will also accelerate to the direction that you move it towards. Objects will move at the same speed that you push them at. Te second law is dependent on two things the net force which keeps the mass and force of the object. The second thing is the acceleration which depends on the direct net force acting on the object.
