A net force of zero will have no effect on a moving object. If there is a net force of zero on an object then the object will continue moving at a constant speed in the same direction.
Yes, but an object with net force of zero may still be moving. The net force is zero if the object is not accelerating.
The net force on an object moving at a constant velocity 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.
either not moving or moving with a constant velocity
That is correct.
It is in equilibrium.
If the object is moving at constant velocity, that's an indication that the net force on it is zero.
a force that acts in the direction opposite to the velocity of an object moving in air
Yes. No force is needed to keep a moving object moving. Force is only neededto change the object's speed or direction of motion.
It starts moving in the direction of the greater force.
If there is zero net force on an object, the object will not accelerate. (It's velocity will not change.)
If you are moving at a speed of ceratin speed and there is no force trying to slow you down, and there is no force trying to speed you up. Then there is zero acceleration. An example would be : an object in out in space, if you throw a object away from you the object will float away, since there is no force working on the object after you throw it the object is moving away in a locked speed from you, but have zero acceleration because there is no force affecting the object
If the object is static (and remains static), or if it moves at a constant velocity, that means that the net force on the object is zero.
You can't. The net force simply means that the acceleration is zero. It could be at rest, or the object could be moving at a constant velocity.
It will keep moving with a constant velocity since zero net force means no acceleration. If the object is at rest, it will just stay at rest.
Not accelerating. It could be stationary or moving at a constant speed.
Yes. The resultant force is zero Newtons.
If the object is moving in a straight line, then the net force on it is zero. If the object is not moving in a straight path, then there is some non-zero net force acting on it even if its speed is constant. We don't have enough information to describe the magnitude or direction of the force.
Zero net force on a object means that the velocity of the object stays constant (this includes 0, when the object is not moving). Lets look at Newton's 2nd law of motion: Fnet=ma An object can never have a 0 mass (then it wouldn't exist). Therefore, the acceleration has to be 0 for the net force to be zero. Recall at acceleration is the change of velocity over time. In order for the acceleration to be zero, the velocity has to be constant. If the object is at 0 velocity (not moving), the object would remain unmoving when a net force of 0 is applied to it. If the object is moving at a certain velocity, it would remain at that velocity. Therefore, a zero not force cannot do anything to an object.
Yes, but the net force is ZERO! If an object is moving at constant velocity, the sum of the forces acting upon it is zero. When an object is motionless, its constant velocity is zero. If at any time the sum of the forces -- sometimes called the net force -- is non-zero, the object will accelerate in the direction of the resultant force.
No because if it was, nothing would ever accelerate. If you apply a net force to an object, it accelerates. The net force acting on an object is always zero if and only if it is in static equilibrium; that is, the object is not moving (rotation or translation) or moving with constant velocity. Given that an object is in static equilibrium, you can say that the net force and moments in all three cartesian directions are zero.
When the net force on an object is zero, then the speed and direction of the object's motion don't change. The object can certainly be moving, even at a high rate of speed. That doesn't require any force. But without force, the speed and its direction can't change. The object continues moving at a constant speed, in a straight line.
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.
