AnswerUnbalanced forces: Forces that produce a non-zero net force, which changes an object's motion.

Unbalanced forces are forces that produce a non-zero net force, which changes an object's motion. The result of an unbalanced force is acceleration of an object.

• Example 1 : Think of a shoe lying motionless on a floor. If I push on the shoe hard enough with my hand-that is, if I exert enough force on it-I will overcome the friction between the shoe and the floor and the shoe will begin to accelerate and move. I will have exerted an unbalanced force on the shoe in that I will have pushed harder on the shoe than the force of friction is pushing against my force.
• Example 2 : Suppose one person tosses a large ball toward another person and you are positioned near the path of the ball. You cannot catch the ball but you can reach out and push it with your hand so that will not reach its intended target. The force you apply to the ball is unbalanced because there is no force on the opposite side of the ball pushing back against your hand. (I am ignoring effects such as momentum to simplify this explanation.)

In physics,tension is the magnitude of the pulling force exerted by a string cable chain,or similar object on aNOTHER OBJECT.
forces that are not balanced
what is th defenition of a un balanced force
That means that the vector sum of forces that act on an object - also known as the net force - is not equal to zero. Such a non-zero net force will cause an acceleration.
Unbalanced forces are forces that are unequal.
