An object doesn't "want to" do anything. An object in motion has the natural tendency to remain in motion.

Molecules in an object or substance are always in motion.


What keeps an object in circular motion?

The centripetal force which always acts perpendicular to the motion of the object


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.


How friction affect the moving object?

Friction always want to retard the motion of a moving object. So friction slows down and finally stops a moving object.


Will friction resist motion of an object on rough surfaces?

Friction always resist motion if the object is sliding on surface.


Must an object always have the same motion?

No, of course not! We ourselves we change our motion!


What is the force that atcs in an opposite direction to the motion of a moving object?

Friction always acts in a direction opposing the motion of an object.


Do all force always cause motion?

-- First of all, motion doesn't require any force.-- If the forces on an object are unbalanced, then the object's motion changes. Always.-- If the forces on an object are balanced, then the object's motion doesn't change.

Friction is a force that always acts in a direction to the motion of a moving object?

Fricton is a force that always acts opposite to an objects motion.


The tendency for an object in motion to remain in motion is called what?

Newton's First Law of Motion states that an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. The term inertia is also used to describe the resistance of an object to any change in its motion. If an object is not moving, it doesn't want to move. If it is moving, it doesn't want to change is speed or the direction it is moving. This is covered by Newton in his laws of motion.


In what direction does friction always act?

Friction always acts in the opposite direction to that of the motion of the other object. Meaning, friction slows down the motion of an object by exerting opposing forces on it.


How do you tell when an object is in motion?

The fact is that it always is ... in relation to something. For an object to be at "rest" there must be a second object to compare it with.


How does friction affect the motion of a sliding object?

Friction is a force that always opposes motion. The force of friction therefore slows down the sliding object.


Why does force always oppose motion?

because of the inertia of the object as stated by Newton's first law of motion.


What direction doesw friction always act?

The force of friction always acts in the opposite direction to that of the motion of an object. Thus, it always strives to slow an object down


What is the definition of Simple Harmonic Motion?

Simple Harmonic Motion is any motion where the force on the object in motion is always toward one point (the center of the motion) and depends on how far the object is from that point. A playground swing or clock pendulum are fine examples.


What do we call the tendency of a object to stay at rest or to stay in motion?

We use the term inertia to describe the resistance of an object to any change in its motion. If an object is not moving, it doesn't want to move. If it is moving, it doesn't want to change is speed or the direction it is moving. This is covered by Newton in his laws of motion.


What is when an object is in motion?

What is the stationary object against which motion can be measured?

There is no such thing as a "stationary" object. Every motion is always measured relative to something else, which, coincidentally, is what the question is all about. The thing against which motion is measured is called the "reference frame".



Is an object in motion from every point of view?

Never, because it's always relative.


Examples of force of friction that causes an object to accelerate?

Any frictional force can cause an object to accelerate, but the acceleration is always in the opposite direction of the direction of motion of the object. That is to say frictional forces can cause negative acceleration (or deceleration) of an object in motion.
