Force can change the direction of a moving object when applied appropriately.

Any force that's not in the direction that the object is moving or directly opposite to it, will change the direction of its motion.

Speed and direction of the object. Speed is but an object moving in a straight line, while velocity is a change in direction of the object i.e. 45kph in a nnw direction.

Force can: * Move an stationary object * Speed up * Slow down a moving object * Change the direction of a moving object * Stop a moving object * Change the shape of an object Hope this is useful to you!

An unbalanced force can: change the speed an object moves at change the direction an object is moving cause an object to start/stop moving

1. Stop a moving object 2. Move and object at rest 3. Change the direction of a moving object 4. Change the shape of an object

A change in the speed or direction of a moving object is called acceleration. Slowing down is also acceleration, not deceleration as is commonly used for such a situation.

The object will maintain its speed and direction or the object will not change its speed or direction.

This is one definition of acceleration (including deceleration) - any change in the speed of motion of a moving object, or in the direction of its motion. Motion is a vector value with both speed and direction.

-- The direction of velocity is the direction in which the object is moving.-- The direction of force acting on the object can be any direction; it doesn'thave to be related in any way to the direction in which the object is moving.-- The direction of the object's acceleration is the direction of force acting onthe object, so it doesn't have to be related in any way to the direction in whichthe object is moving either.

A stronger force moving in the opposite direction to the object. that what happens

Acceleration is the change in velocity and/or direction of an object. Acceleration can either speed an object up, slow it down (deceleration), or change the direction in which the object is moving.

If the velocity is zero, the object is not moving. So if it moves at all, it is changing direction.

Any force will change the rate and/or the direction or an object, whether or not it is (initially) in motion.The only exceptions would be if there is something (like a surface supporting it) keeping the object from moving in the direction of the force, or if the object is initially not moving, and the force in not enough to overcome friction.

Unbalanced forces causes an object to start moving. It also cause an object to stop moving and change directions. Balanced forces do not cause a change in motion.

Balanced forces will not change the velocity - speed and direction - of a moving object. the object will continue to move in the same way.

force can change the shape and size of an object force can change the direction of an moving object force can make a stationary object move and make a moving object move faster force can slow down or completely stop a moving object

Take a ball and push it an angle yo direction of motion.what do you observe? Answer-change the angle of your hand with respect to the direction of motion of the ball.Does yoo effort result in change in direction of motion of ball?

Inertia is the reluctance of an object to change direction, and velocity is when an object is moving with a speed in ONE direction so since you have to change direction to have inertia then there is no relation between the two
