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.


What happens to the speed of moving object when it is pushed in the direction of motion?

The speed increases. The object accellerates positively in the direction of motion.


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.



Friction acts in a direction to the object's direction of motion?

The direction of the frictional force on a moving object is opposite the direction of 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 are three situations in which a force changes the velocity of an object?

1). Force applied to a moving object, in the direction of its motion. Speed increases, direction remains unchanged. 2). Force applied to a moving object, opposite to the direction of its motion. Speed decreases, direction remains unchanged. 3). Force applied to a moving object, in an arbitrary direction not parallel to the direction of motion. Speed and direction both change. 4). (bonus): Force applied to a moving object, force is kept exactly perpendicular to the direction of motion at every instant. Speed remains constant, path of the motion becomes circular.


If the net force on an object is 0 what will be the direction of motion?

it will be in the same direction in which it is moving. If it is not moving it will remain at rest


What causes a moving object to change direction?

Forces cause motion or the change in motion.


What effect does gravity have on a moving object?

Gravity is a force and has the effect of changing the velocity or direction of motion of a moving object.


What is the direction of force of friction acting on an moving object?

The direction of friction is usually in the direction opposite to the direction of motion. The exception is when the friction is against something that is moving faster than the moving object, or at some other angle.


Why do we say an object moving in a circle at a constant speed is accelerating?

Because "acceleration" is defined as any change in the speed or direction of motion,and the direction of motion of an object moving in a circle is changing constantly.


How can a moving object be slowed?

By applying a force to it in the direction opposite to its motion.


What effect does an unbalanced force have on a moving object?

it either changes the direction of the object or it stops the object in motion.


How you can tell that an object is in motion?

it would be in the process of moving It depends on your perspective. If you were also moving in the same direction and at the same speed, is the object moving?


What the speed and the direction an object are moving?

If you know the speed and direction of the object's motion, then you know its velocity.


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.


Which forces change the rate and direction of an object in motion?

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.


Occurs when force is applied over a certain distance and motion is in the same direction as the force?

Work. The object doesn't have to be moving in the same direction as the force.If I'm pushing north and the object is moving northeast, then it has a componentof motion in the direction of my force, and I do work.


What is neccassary to stop a moving object?

A force applied to it in the direction opposite to its motion is.


What force can stop a moving object?

any force opposite the direction of motion


What is the motion in which the velocity of the moving object does change?

Curved motion e.g circular motion and changed speed in the same direction.


Why is uniform linear motion not an accelerated motion?

Because the object is not moving in any direction at all. Therefore its not accelerating or in motion.


Can an object be moving if acceleration is zero?

Yes. Acceleration is defined as a change of speed and/or direction of motion. If the speed and direction of motion are constant, then there is no acceleration.


What causes an object in motion to slow down?

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