Are forces balanced if an object is stationary?

Yes. A stationary object has a net force of zero acting on it as long as it is stationary, which means the forces acting on it are balanced.




If an object is stationary the forces acting upon it are?

If an object is stationary on a surface then the forces acting on it are the Gravitational force and the Normal force(the force of the surface pushing back against the object). Technically you could be pulling(or pushing) that object from opposite directions with equal forces and it would remain stationary. The important thing to understand is that a stationary object remains stationary so long as the net forces applied to it equal zero.



Does an object that has balanced forces or no force acting on it must be stationary?

No. An object that has no net force on it will simply not be accelerating. It can be in motion, but it can not have any change in its velocity.


How does the net force on an object determine the motion of the object?

If there is a net force of 0 acting on an object then the object is either stationary or moving at a constant velocity. If the net force is not zero the object will accelerate in the direction of the net force.


What effect a force has on stationary object?

If an object is stationary the net force is zero.


What is a stationary force?

A stationary force is when an object will not move.


What is the definition of an unbalanced force?

an unbalanced force means that there is a force acting on the object that causes it to accelerate (or decelerate). if the object is stationary then the forces are balanced (they cancel each other out)


What are the situation that show balanced forces acting on an object?

There are many examples to show balanced forces acting on objects. An object sitting still on a table has the gravitational force of the earth trying to pull the object to the center of the earth. The table provides a force upward that balances the gravitational force and keeps the object stationary. An object suspended by a rope again has gravitational force down and the rope provides a tension force to hold the object stationary.


If two forces acting on an object are equal will the object move?

If two forces acting on an object are equal and opposite, then the net force acting on the object is zero. If the net force acting on an object is zero, then the object's velocity will not change. If it is already moving, then it will continue to move in a straight line at that same velocity. If it is not already moving, it will stay stationary.


What forces act on something when two people are pulling on it from opposite sides but it is stationary?

If the object is stationary, then this means both the forces acting on it are equal and due to this the net force acting on the object needed to overcome its inertia becomes zero, and hence the object doesn't move.


What is the force that causes stationary object?

Frictional force is a retarding force.It is friction that causes an object to become stationary.


What forces affect an object's velocity?

By definition, every force acting on the object affects its velocity.Newton's second law states that the acceleration of an object (the rate of change of velocity with time) is equal to the net force on the object divided by the object's mass. Force is a vector, so if you have several forces acting on the object you must take their vector sum. Only if all the forces acting on the object sum up to zero will the object not accelerate. In that case it will remain stationary if it was already stationary, or continue to move in the same speed and in the same direction as before.


What is the net force acting on an object is zero?

the net force acting on an object is zero. what is it


Can an object be moving if the net force acting on the object is zero?

Absolutely. The key is to realize that a net force of zero on an object means only that it is not accelerating. This means that an object feeling zero net force can either be stationary or moving at constant speed in a straight line.


When the net force acting on an object is zero the force is?

When the net force acting on an object is zero, then all the forces on the object are balanced.



What can be said about the force of gravity acting on an object that is floating stationary underwater and not moving up or down?

The force of gravity on the object in that situation is the same as it is in any other situation on the Earth's surface. But there is another force acting on the object, in the direction opposite to the gravitational force, called the "buoyant" force. If the object is floating, then the two forces are equal in magnitude and, being opposite in direction, they add up to zero. With zero net force acting on it, the object has no tendency to accelerate vertically, so it stays wherever you put it.


What is normal force?

Normal force is the force of a surface acting on an object( the normal force is perpendicular to the plane of contact). This force is directly related to the force of gravity, as the third law of newton state that when a force is applied to an object it will react with an equal force in the opposite direction. So when an object is placed on a surface, the force of gravity is acting on it (pulling it down), but the is object remain in place due to the normal force (which is pulling up on the object). In addition, a change to the force of gravity will result in the same change to the force of normal, to allow an object to remain stationary.


An object will move only when there is force acting on it?

An object will move only when there is an unbalanced force acting on it.


Measureof the force of gravity acting on an object?

measure pf the force of gravity acting on an object?


Measure of force of gravity acting in an object?

weight, The weight of an object is the force of gravity acting on it.


The force acting upon an object the greater the acceleration of the object?

The larger the force acting upon an object, the greater the acceleration of the object.
