  24. The tendency of an object to resist being moved or, if the object is moving, to resist a change in speed or direction until an outside force acts on the object.
    Inertia
  25. A object at rest remains at rest and an object in motion maintains its velocity unless it experiences an unbalanced force.
    Newton's First Law of Motion
  26. The unbalanced force acting on an object equals the object's mass times its acceleration.
