Equilibrium describes any state where the acceleration and net force are zero. This means that the velocity will not change.

What is the correct name for circular motion?

If the motion is truly in the form of a circle, the phrase uniform circular motion describes it appropriately. This means that the object is in a constant state of motion about a fixed point at a constant distance from that point. Circular motion can be considered an acceleration, because an acceleration describes any change in velocity or direction. Since circular motion involves constant change in direction, the object exhibits constant acceleration.


What causes a moving object to change direction?

Forces cause motion or the change in motion.


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.




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.






Describes unequal forces acting on an object-results in a change in the objects motion in the direction of the larger force?

You're talking about "unbalanced forces". But the change in the object's motion is not in the direction of the larger force. It's in the direction of the vector sum of all the forces, which is not necesssarily the direction of any single one of them.


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


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.


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.





Can balanced forces change an objects motion?

No but it can move the direction of the object


The resistance of an object to change in its motion?

The resistance of an object to changes in its motion is known as inertia. Changes in an objects motion include changes in its speed and direction.


When the direction of an object changes what happens to it's velocity?

A change in the direction of motion IS a change of velocity,even if the speed doesn't change.
