The Laws of Motion

1) Balanced forces mean no change in velocity

Meaning as long as the forces on an object are all balanced, then it'll stay still, unless it's already moving, then it will move at a constant veloocity.

BUT       Things do not need a constant overall force to keep them moving

To keep going at a steady speed, there must be zero resultant force

2) A resultant force means acceleration
