Newton's first law states that an object at rest will remain at rest, and an object in motion will remain in motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

This is also called the law of inertia, which is the resistance to a change in motion. Whether an object is at rest or in motion in a straight line, it has constant velocity.

Any change in motion, whether it be amount of speed or direction, is called acceleration.
