What are the different effects of forces on object?

force can change the shape and size of an object force can change the direction of an moving object force can make a stationary object move and make a moving object move faster force can slow down or completely stop a moving object


A force can make moving objects?

A force will cause a moving object to continue moving. It will also cause the object to move farther and faster until friction slows it down.


How does force effect an objects motion?

Force on an object accelerates the object. That means it can make the object go faster, go slower, or change the direction it's moving.


What do you have to do to an object to make it start moving and what is this called in science?

To make an object start moving is called acceleration, and it is done by exerting force on that object.


How the unbalanced force affects the object at rest?

An unbalanced force will always make an object accelerate. If the object is at rest, it will start moving.


Is force required to keep an object moving?

No force is needed to keep an object moving. An object with no forces on it keeps moving at a constant speed in a straight line. If there is any force acting on it to make it slow down, then you need just enough force to cancel the first one, in order to keep it moving.


Is a force required an object in motion?

No force is required to keep an object in motion. Maintaining speed and direction seems to be "the natural thing to do" for any object. A force is required to CHANGE an object's velocity, whether you want to make it go faster, slow it down, or simply change the direction for a moving object.


How much force is needed to keep an object moving?

No force is needed to keep an object moving. An object with no forces on it keeps moving at a constant speed in a straight line. If there is any force acting on it to make it slow down, then you need just enough force to cancel the first one, in order to keep it moving.


How does a force affect an object?

A force can make a still object move. It can change its shape or size. It can change the way in which it is moving.


How much force is needed to keep a 2kg object moving?

No force is needed to keep an object moving. An object with no forces on it keeps moving at a constant speed in a straight line. If there is any force acting on it to make it slow down, then you need just enough force to cancel the first one, in order to keep it moving.


Why is the force of friction directed the opppsite way of an object that is movin?

I never thought about it before, but here's one way to look at it:Forces on a moving object that act in the same direction it's moving make it go faster.Forces on a moving object that act opposite to the direction it's moving make it go slower.Friction never makes things go faster, or ... heaven forbid ... makes stationary things start moving.Friction only makes it hard to make things start moving, and it slows them down once they move.

When an object is moving how can we make the object speed up or slow down?

By applying a force in the relevant direction against the object.


Do you need force to make an object moving in a circle?

Yes you do. You need a force that always attracts the object toward the center of the circle. It's called a "centripetal force".


What can a force do?

a force is something that you apply to an object- it can move-change shape-change direction-slow it down-make it faster


What is the other force that acts on a falling object?

Other than what?A falling object will be attracted by Earth; this will tend to make the object fall faster and faster. Another force is the force of friction which will tend to slow the objec tdown. At terminal velocity - after falling a while - the two forces are in equilibrium.


Can unbalanced fores stop a moving object?

Yes. An unbalanced force can make an object go faster (if the force acts in the same directon of the movement); slow it down (opposite directions), or change its direction (if force is perpendicular to the direction of movement). All of these phenomena are called "acceleration", which for a physicist means "change of velocity".


When a force is applied to do work on an object does the object always accelerate explain why or why not?

If the force is constant then the object will continue to move at the same speed. Force will not always make things go faster, but will allow greater work to be done.


How can you make the object speed up or slow down?

Making an object speed up or slow down always requires a force.-- To make the object speed up, apply a force to it in the same directionthat it's moving.-- To make it slow down, apply a force to it in the opposite direction.


What is the 6 things that forces can do?

Force can: * Move an stationary object * Speed up * Slow down a moving object * Change the direction of a moving object * Stop a moving object * Change the shape of an object Hope this is useful to you!


How does force make an object stop moving?

By accelerating it in the direction opposite to its motion, and then quickly removing the force when it's speed is zero.


Would friction make an object faster?

No, friction is a force which always acts in the direction opposite to that of motion.


What does it take to make an object move?

If it's not already moving, then it takes force to make it start.If it is already moving, and there's nothing making it stop,then it doesn't take anything to keep it moving.
