The first law of motion

Anyone involved in animation needs to understand how objects move and the way that objects move are defined by the laws of motion. Now these laws were developed a couple hundred years ago by a man named Sir Isaac Newton and he has three fundamental Laws of Motion. So, we are going to go through those and see how they apply to animation. Now Newton's first Law of Motion in his own words was "a body persists in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straightforward, except insofar as it is compelled to change its state by force impressed." Well that's 17th century English.

So, let's just go ahead and state this in just regular plain old English and the first part of this law is an object that is not moving will remain still until a force acts upon it, and the second part of this law is an object that is moving will not change its velocity until a force acts upon it. Now the fundamental point of this law is that you need force to put something in motion. So...
