Newton's Laws - Mission NL2 Detailed Help

The forces acting upon an object are NOT BALANCED. Therefore, one can be absolutely certain that the object ...

Newton's First Law of Motion:
An object at rest will stay at rest; an object in motion will stay in motion with the same speed and direction, unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Newton's first law of motion explains that if the forces acting upon an object are balanced, then the object will maintain its state of motion. To maintain the state of motion is to keep the current speed and direction. But if the forces are not balanced, the object will change its state of motion. In this question, you will have to examine the list of answer choices to determine which choices describe an object that is changing its speed or direction.
