What happens to a moving object with zero net force?

What happens to a moving object with zero net force?

An object with no net forces acting on it which is initially at rest will remain at rest. If it is moving, it will continue to move in a straight line with constant velocity. Forces are “pushes” or “pulls” on the object, and forces, like velocity and acceleration are vector quantities.

Is it possible for an object to move with no net force?

If the object was already moving, then it will just keep moving. So, yes, the object can be moving when there is no force applied to it. Net force is the vector sum of all forces acting on the object.

What is the net force that acts on a 10n falling object?

Net force that acts on a 10-N falling object when it encounters 4 N of air resistance is (10-4) = 6 N. Net force that acts on a 10-N falling object when it encounters 10 N of air resistance is (10-10) = 0 N.

What is the net force acting on a 1 kg ball in freefall?

9.8 N.

Why doesnt a heavy object accelerate more than a light object when both are freely falling?

Why doesn’t a heavy object accelerate more than a lighter object when both are freely falling? o Because the greater mass offsets the equally greater force; whereas force tends to accelerate things, mass tends to resist acceleration.

When you push against a wall with your fingers they bend identify the force or forces involved?

When you push against a wall with your fingers, they bend. Identify the force or forces involved. You exert an action force and the wall exerts an equal and opposite reaction force. A boxer can hit a heavy bag with great force.

How does acceleration depend on the net force?

The acceleration is directly proportional to the net force; the net force equals mass times acceleration; the acceleration in the same direction as the net force; an acceleration is produced by a net force. If all the individual forces acting upon an object are known, then the net force can be determined.

When can the net force on a ball be zero when you kick it?

When there is one interaction between the foot and the football, the ball accelerates. If two kicks on the ball are simultaneous, equal, and opposite, then the net force on the ball is zero. The opposing forces act on the same object, not on different objects, so they do not make up an action-reaction pair.

When you walk on a floor what pushes you along?

In order to walk across the floor, you push backwards on the floor with your foot. Newton’s Third Law says that the reaction force to this action force is “floor pushes you forward” (Action: You push floor (backwards). Reaction: floor pushes you (forward).) So, when you walk, it is the floor that pushes you along!

When you get up from a sitting position do your feet push against the floor with a force equal to more than or less than your weight?

When you get up from a sitting position, do your feet push against the floor with a force equal to, more than, or less than your weight? Explain. The force is more than your weight.

What force is pushing upwards on your body while you are standing still?

Newton’s third law states that every action has an equal and oposite reaction. You may not think this, but when you’re standing ont he floor, you are excerting a force against the floor: your weight, caused by gravity, is pulling you down. The floor is reacting by pushing back: we call this force the reaction force.
