Can balanced forces act on a moving object?

Sure. If all of the forces on an object are balanced, then the object continues moving

in a straight line at constant speed.

All of the forces on an airplane cruising in level flight, or on a car on cruise-control on a

straight piece of road, are balanced.

When balanced forces act on an object what happens if the object is not moving?

The object will keep moving at a constant speed if the forces acting on an object is balanced as both forces are balanced




Can balanced forces act on a moving object explain your answer?

Of course they can, but as they are balanced no change in the motion happens.


How do unbalanced forces act on an object?

If forces on an object are unbalanced, the object will accelerate or decelerate. If forces on an object are balanced, the object will stay still or keep moving with the same velocity.


When several forces act on an object and the object does not move can the forces be balanced?

If the object doesn't move, the forces HAVE TO be balanced. There is no other way.


When the balanced forces act on an object that is moving the object will?

When the entire group of forces acting on an object is balanced, the object's motion is 'uniform' ... its speed is constant and it moves in a straight line. If its speed is changing or its path is not straight, that's called "acceleration", and it means that the group of forces acting on the object is not balanced.


What happens when two forces act in the opposite directions?

If they are equal in values - nothing. Otherwise, it will move to the same direction as the direction of the greater force.


Balanced force and unbalanced force?

When equal and opposite forces act on an object, the object does not change its state of rest or motion. These forces are called balanced forces. When unequal forces act on an object, the object changes its state of rest or motion. Such forces are called unbalanced forces.


Balanced forces change an object motion?

No. If you have a moving object and you act upon it with forces which total sum equals 0 (zero), you will not change that object movement. Same goes for static objects.


When no unbalanced forces act on an object the object can have no?

If forces on an object are balanced, the object will not accelerate - i.e., its velocity won't change.


Name some forces that act upon a moving object?

Forces that likely act upon a moving object include:frictiongravity


What does it mean about an object if it is in equilibrium?

It means the forces which act upon the object are balanced


What happens when 2 equal forces act on a object they are?

If the forces are balanced they will have no action or the object, if not they will accelerate the object in the resultant direction of the two forces..


What happens to the motion of an object if balanced forces act on it?

Balanced forces cancel each other, hence, they do not alter the motion of an object upon which they are acting.



What does net force and balanced forces mean?

Net force is when two or more forces act on an object at the same time and the forces combine. Balanced forces are forces on an object that are equal in size and opposite in direction.



What is the difference between action and reaction forces and balanced forces?

"Action and reaction" refers to Newton's Third Law. Forces always come in pairs; if object "A" pushes against object "B", then object "B" will push back against object "A". Which of these two forces is called the "action", and which the "reaction", is often arbitrary."Balanced forces" is unrelated to the above; when forces are "balanced", it means that the vector sum of all the forces that act on the same object are zero. Please note that "action and reaction" forces are forces that act on different objects, so the forces on a single object are not necessarily balanced.


What will a moving object do with no forces acting on it?

An object in motion will remain in motion until forces act upon it.


What happens to an object when the forces are balenced and it's moving?

Then the result will be the same as if NO forces act on the object (since the sum of the forces is zero). The object will continue moving in a straight line, at constant speed.


What is balanced force and zero net force?

It means the same. When the vector sum of all forces that act on an object is zero, the forces are said to be balanced.


What happens when balanced forces act on an object?

Then the speed is constant and it is going at a constant speed.


How do matched forces act on objects?

If they are balanced and equal they have no overall effect on the acceleration of an object.


What will happen if forces that act on an object are not balanced?

Then the objects will move in the direction of the resultant force.
