Newton's First Law

An object will continue to move at a constant velocity unless a resultant force acts upon it.

This means that an object will continue to do whatever it is doing unless an unbalanced force acts upon or the forces already acting upon the objevt increases or decreases.

For something to move at a constant velocity all the forces must be balanced. If an object has a resultant force of 0 the object will remain stationary or it will continue to move at the same velocity.

Therefore, balanced forces means





Clearly explained but not too long in terms of words
