# Is it accurate to say that force causes motion or that force causes changes?

###### Wiki User

Force causes acceleration. Acceleration is a change of speed or direction of motion.

No force is necessary to maintain constant speed in a straight line. So you'd have

to say that force causes changes in motion.

F=ma.Or force causes acceleration,which is another way of saying that the motion changes.

It may be more accurate to say that forces cause changes in motion. If an object is at rest and is moved by a force, its motion was changed when it was moved by that force. If an argument is presented that a force causes motion, it can be counter-argued that a force caused the object to change its motion from none (stationary) to something else. Let's consider one more thing. Force (F) equals mass (m) times acceleration (a). (F = ma) Acceleration is a change in motion. Can it be said any more clearly? Wikipedia has more information in their article on force, and a link is provided below. Why not surf on over and skim it? After all, that the way the world works.

Force changes either the speed or the direction of motion, or both.

Applied force to an object causes motion.

Applied force causes a change in motion. The change of motion can be from stationary to motion or a change of speed or acceleration.

there are various way how the motion changes the motion of a body changes by the effect of force

The 1st law says that changes in motion are caused by forces. The 2nd law says that the force applied to an object causes acceleration. The 3rd law says that when a force is applied it causes equal and opposite changes in momentum so that the vector sum of momentum is zero.

An unbalanced force causes motion. This occurs when the net force does not equal zero.

Force has size, which is how much force put into somethig, e.g., 10 Newtons of force. It has motion because force is basically motion, because force can be unbalanced or balanced, and unbalanced causes motion, and is basically motion.

No, a force changes an object's motion. F=ma= mdv/dt

A force will cause motion, specifically it causes acceleration, whenever it is unbalanced by an opposing force, such as friction.

Any force does that, as long as it's not exactly canceledby an equal opposite force.

motion is created by force and F=ma or force equals mass and acellaration,or,force makes mass acellarate.for example,there is shopping cart on a hill,it has potential energy.energy causes force and force causes motion.when the cart goes down the hill,it is in motion.

Accelerate, motion is generated by applying force to mass.

It is the force that causes circular motion. It acts in a direction perpendicular to the direction of motion.

1. force changes direction of motion. 2. it brings an object to rest. 3. it changes magnitude of velocity. 4. it sets an object to motion.

A net force on a body can stop the motion of a body , can create the motion of a body and can change the direction of motion of a body .

Motion is caused by applying a force to an object. A force applied to an object that causes it to move requires energy

When a force is acted on an object the motion changes. Newtons 2nd law of motion states: An object in motion will stay in motion, and an object out of motion will stay out of motion, unless met with an unbalanced force. If a force is aplied to an object in motion it either accelerates, or it will stop once met with sed unbalanced force.

A balanced force will NOT cause a change in motion.
