Summary:

• The Law of Inertia says, “An object moves with constant, uniform motion until acted on by an unbalanced force.”
• A force is balanced by an equal force acting in opposition, such as the floor pushing you up versus gravity pulling you downward.
• The Law of Inertia explains follow through and overlapping action, such as the secondary motions that occur when a character comes to a sudden stop.
