newtons second law of motion states that "An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force." Objects tend to "keep on doing what they're doing." In fact, it is the natural tendency of objects to resist changes in their state of motion. This tendency to resist changes in their state of motion is described as inertia. this can be clearly seen by= when bus suddenly stops  we lean forward because we still want to stay in motion. when bus suddenly starts , we lean backwards as we want to remain at rest.
