# What can zero net force do to an object?

###### Wiki User

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.

If the net force acting on an object is zero, it has no acceleration.

the net force acting on an object is zero. what is it

Yes, but an object with net force of zero may still be moving. The net force is zero if the object is not accelerating.

When the net force acting on an object is zero, then all the forces on the object are balanced.

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.

The condition where the net force on an object is zero ,the body is said to be in equilibrium.As net forces are zero.

If the net force acting on the object is zero, them it can't accelerate.

A non-zero net force on an object results in the object's acceleration.

Nothing. When the net force is zero, the object will not accelerate because their is no resultant force acting on the object.

If the net force is not zero then the object will move in the direction of the greater force.

Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.

-- When the net force on an object is not zero, the object undergoes accelerated motion.-- The magnitude of the acceleration is the ratio of the net force to the object's mass.-- The direction of the acceleration is the same as the direction of the net force.

When an object as a net force of zero acting on it, that means all of the forces are balanced.

If the net forces acting on an object amount to zero, that object is at rest.

when the net force of an object is at zero, it is at rest. That means that the forces on it are balanced. when the net force is not zero, the forces are unbalanced.

you can say that there is no net force on the object; that is, the net force is zero

If the net force acting on an object is zero, then the object has zero acceleration. It's speed is constant and in a straight line. The speed could also be constant zero.

If the net force on an object is zero, then the object is in equilibrium. This means there are balanced forces acting upon it, or none at all.

If the total group of all forces acting on an object is balanced, then the net force on the object is zero.

Since force is a function of acceleration and an object at rest has zero acceleration, then then net force is zero as well.

Then there will be no acceleration of the object.
