Are there unbalanced or balanced forces on the moon?

Must be unbalanced. Otherwise, the moon would be moving at constant speed in a straight line.


What force pull an object away from the center of a curved path?

Inertia is the "force" that causes an object in a curved path to pull away from the center. Inertia is actually the tendency of anything with mass to resist a change in motion. In other words, an object at rest will not move because of inertia, unless it is acted on by an unbalanced force, and an object in motion will continue to travel at a constant speed in a straight line unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object traveling in a circular path pulls away from the center because inertia tries to keep the object traveling in a straight line.


A spacecraft orbits Earth at a constant speed.The forces actinbg on it must be?

There is only one force acting on an orbiting spacecraft ... the force of gravity.It's NOT correct to say that a constant speed in a curved path indicates balanced forces.That's true only when the constant speed is in a straight line. If the direction is changing,there must be net forces on the moving object, even if its speed is constant.

Are the forces balanced or unbalanced on a motorboat coasting at a constant speed?

That would be balanced, because the motorboat is not increasing in speed or decreasing in speed.


What are the between balanced force and unbalanced force?

An object with balanced forces acting on it is still. An object with unbalanced forces acting on them moves at an non constant velocity. It is possible for an object to have balanced forces acting on it and yet move in a vacuum.


What are the similarities between balanced and unbalanced forces?

Do balanced forces cause motion?

No. An unbalanced force causes motion, but balanced forces keep a body in motion in a straight line at constant velocity, or at rest at constant 0 velocity.


How do balanced forces and unbalanced forces differ?

* Balanced: The vector sum of all forces on an object is zero. The object does not accelerate.* Unbalanced: The vector sum of all forces on an object is NOT zero, the object DOES accelerate.


Is a car balanced or unbalanced when turninng while moving at a constant speed?

The forces acting on the car are unbalanced because it is accelerating by changing direction, even though it has constant speed. Unbalanced forces cause acceleration (change in motion). That is what Newton's first law of motion is about.


What are the examples of unbalanced force?

Anything that is accelerating or decelerating because it is only balanced when something is moving at a constant speed.


To start or change the motion of an object do you need unbalanced force or balanced force?

Doesn't matter Balanced Force would mean the object is traveling at a constant velocity due to Newton's First Law of Motion (Law of Inertia) Unbalenced Force would mean the object is accelerating (or decellerating) due to Newton's Second Law of Motion


What is an exapmle of a balanced force?

AN airplane traveling @ a constant speed. It's air friction is balanced by the applied force of it's engine.


Infer whether balanced forces must be acting on a car moving at a constant speed?

The friction force acting upon the turned wheels of the car cause an unbalanced force upon the car and a subsequent acceleration.
