If the net force is not zero then the object will move in the direction of the greater force.

What happens to a object when a unbalanced force acts upon it?

When unbalanced forces act upon an object, that object will experience acceleration of some kind. Remember, force equals mass times acceleration.


What happens when a force acts upon an object which is at rest?

The object accelerates, At rest simply means its stationary.


What happens when an object is acted on by an unbalanced force?

as stated in newtons second law of motion- an object acted upon by an unbalanced force will accelerate in the direction of that force


The force acting upon an object the greater the acceleration of the object?

The larger the force acting upon an object, the greater the acceleration of the object.


How does an object start moving?

an object will start to move if a force is acted upon it. an object will start to move if a force is acted upon it.


What happens to an object when the force of friction is less?

If the friction is less, then the position will stay the same and NOTHING would act upon the Object.


Second law of newton?

The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables - the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object. The acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object. As the force acting upon an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is increased. As the mass of an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is decreased. To put it as it is often put: Force equals mass times acceleration (F = ma): the net force on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by its acceleration.



What happens when force is decreased?

Assuming that mass stays constant, a decrease in force will result in a corresponding decrease in the acceleration of the object being acted upon by the force.


What is the force acting upon an object the greater the acceleration of the object?

The greater the acceleration of the object the larger the force that is acting upon an object. This can be proven by Newton's second law.


What is applied force?

it is the force acting upon an object



The force of gravity acting upon an object is the object's?

The force of gravity acting upon an object is the object's weight. Weight is calculated by the mass of the object multiplied by the force of gravity (9.8m/s^2).


What is cumulative force?

cumultive force is the force that acts upon a specific object


What happens to to a moving object if an unbalanced force does not act on it?

Nothing. If all forces on the object are balanced, the object will remain in motion. This is straight from Sir Isaac Newton's first law, "An object in motion will remain in motion until acted upon by an external force". By external force, he means an unbalanced external force, such as pushing the object in another direction etc...



How does Newton's second law explain why it is easier to push a bicycle than to push a car with the same acceleration?

The second law states that the acceleration of an object is dependent upon two variables - the net force acting upon the object and the mass of the object. The acceleration of an object depends directly upon the net force acting upon the object, and inversely upon the mass of the object. As the force acting upon an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is increased. As the mass of an object is increased, the acceleration of the object is decreased.Since a bicycle has much less mass than a car so it's easier to push it.


What effect does an unbalanced force have on an object?

An unbalanced force can completely destroy the object (depending upon its mass and power of force) or can gradually move it or it can also have no effect on the object.


Is the mass of an object the force of gravity acting upon it?

No, mass is a measure of the amount of matter an object has. Weight is the measure of the force of gravity on an object.


Unless an object at rest is acted upon by a force it stays at rest due to its?

Unless an object at rest is acted upon by a force, it stays at rest due to its inertia.


The force moved when an effort is applied is?

When an external force acts upon an object, it is an applied force. It may be gravity, friction, or a force applied by another object.


What does unbalanced force do to an object at rest?

It moves the object in the direction of the force. If a force is balanced, it means that a force of equal magnitude and opposite direction is acting upon the same object. If there isn't an equal and opposite force acting on an object, it moves it.


What does the motion of an object depend on?

The motion of an object depends upon its mass, the strength of the force of gravity pulling it, and the strength of friction acting upon that object.


If a force acts on an object but does not touch it the force is called force?

Yes. The definition of a force is a push or a pull. So, as long as the object moves, a force has indeed acted upon it.
