This is a moving object that is slowing down.

When a moving object is slowing down, i.e. its speed is decreasing.

The moving object is slowing down.

If the positive direction was defined at the outset as the direction opposite to the direction in which the object happens to be moving just now, and the object is slowing down, then the acceleration is positive because, algebraically, the object's speed is increasing in the positive direction.

Inertia is what slows down moving objects. 2nd Answer: Not even close . . . inertia would keep objects FROM slowing. Friction or running into another object will slow a moving object.

The acceleration is opposite the direction the object is moving, so the acceleration is negative and southward.

Acceleration is the change of velocity, with direction. Therefore slowing down is a change in veolcity, so is considered to be acceleration (just negative acceleration).

It is not at rest.
