Is it possible to have balanced forces on a moving object? | Yes |

What is needed to change an object's motion? | an unbalanced force |

The resistance of an object to a change in the speed or the direction of its motion is called... | Inertia |

Any force that keeps an object moving in a circle is... | Centripetal |
