momentum = mass * velocity As the momentum changes with constant mass, the velocity cahnges.

The momentum stays the same. The mass increases and the velocity decreases but the momentum stays the same, momentum is conserved.

Beacuse p=mv, where p is momentum, m is mass and v is the velocity; as the velocity of the ball increases, so too does the momentum while the mass remains constant.

The total momentum of a closed system of objects is constant. No matter where objects go, the momentum stays the same, along with the mass and energy. Nothing depends on location. (This is as long as there are no external forces affecting the system).

The object continues to accelerate as long as the force stays constant.

A submarine which has adjusted its ballast so that it stays at constant depth.

Newton's first law states that an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with constant velocity unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. This is also called the law of inertia. So, the forces acting on an object are balanced when the object is not accelerating. This happens when the object is at rest, or when the object is moving at constant velocity. ===================== The forces on an object are balanced when their vector sum is zero.

The density of the object would change if the volume stays the same. This is because whenever you're finding the density , you must divide the mass by the volume. The increase of mass also affect its momentum, which is a measurement of how hard it is to stop an object Momentum = mv

2 Forces are unbalanced when an object that is not moving starts moving or changes speed or direction. Balanced forces are the opposite they are where an object that is not moving stays still or an object that is moving stays at a constant pace.

The first law, which is: An object at rest stays at rest. An object in motion stays in motion, in a constant speed, in a straight line, unless acted on by an unbalanced force.

If the object was at constant velocity when the net force increased, then it will start to accelerate. If the object was already accelerating when the net force increased, then it will experience an increase in acceleration.

because it wont be as heavy when it stays having the same velocity

The total amount of momentum stays the same. Momentum is neither lost nor gained.

If something stays the same it is constant.
