What causes a moving object to change direction?

Forces cause motion or the change in motion.




Force can cause an object to change its speed and or direction?

A force can cause an object to change its speed if it has a component along the same direction with its speed. It can change its direction if it has a component in a different direction from the direction of its speed. so if a force is 1) parallel to the direction of speed and motion it only changes the speed. 2)If it makes an angle different than 90 degrees with the direction of motion it changes both direction and speed 3) if it is perpendicular(90 degrees) to the direction of motion it only changes the direction of motion and causes the object to make circular motion


How does air resistance affect the motion of an object?

it causes friction and slows down the object. if the air resistance is greater than the force applied then it can also change the direction of the motion of an object.


Why is an object traveling in a circular motion accelerating?

acceleration is change in velocity.. and velocity constantly changes in circular motion, as the direction constantly changes. This constant change in velocity causes the object to accelerate.


What causes an object in motion to stay in motion?

Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist a change in its motion.


What always causes a change in motion of the object?

An applied force will change the motion of an object. Such as a thrust, or an impact.



Is motion a change in direction?

No it isn't. Motion means something moving.Direction has to be established for there to be a change in it. An object that moves forward, stops, and then moves forward again experiences motion without a change in direction. An object that moves forward, stops, and then moves to the right experiences both motion and a change in direction.


Which force change the direction of a moving object?

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.


What is any change in the speed or direction of a moving object?

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.


What forces causes no change in an object motion?

Balanced forces that net to zero cause no change in an object motion.


Will an unalanced force acting on an object change the object motion?

Yes,unbalaced force may stop or change the direction of motion or accelarate the object.


Examples of when a force causes an object to stop moving?

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?


What does a force in the opposite direction to the motion cause?

A force applied to a moving object in the opposite direction of its motion causes its velocity to decrease.


What causes an object to change motion?

an aplied force will change the motion of an object.Such as a thrust ,or an impact


When an object accelerate what can it do?

When an object accelerates it can change its speed or direction of motion. When it accelerates without changing its direction of motion, it can cover any distance in less time.


What is a change in an object's motion called?

A change in speed or direction of motion is called "acceleration". If an object's speed or direction of motion changes, then the object is "accelerated".


If you exert a force on an object in motion you will change what?

If you exert a force on an object in motion you will change its velocity, velocity being a vector quantity of speed and direction.


What is the result of unbalanced forces acting on an object?

The result is acceleration of the object ... its speed of motion, or direction of motion, or both, change.


What causes an object in motion to slow down?

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


What is a force that causes an object to change its motion?

I think this question is not phrased very well. Any force can change objects velocity (speed+direction). If fact that is the definition of the force - F=ma any force, by definition itself, can change objects velocity. Maybe you meant what force can change objects direction of motion? In that case - any force that has a different direction (not the same as direction of motion) Any force can change an object's motion.


Which of these would change the direction of an object but not affect the object's speed?

Circular motion would change the direction of an object but would not affect the object's speed.


What causes a change in the motion of an object?

One must apply an acceleration to change the state of motion of a mass
