It will move in the vector direction of the unbalanced net force

If the sum of all forces acting on an object is not zero, the forces are said to be unbalanced. In that case, the object will accelerate in accordance with Newton's Second Law.

There's no such thing as "an unbalanced force". When the entire group of forces acting on an object is unbalanced, the object accelerates, in the direction of the vector sum of the forces.

An object with balanced forces acting on it is still. An object with unbalanced forces acting on them moves at an non constant velocity. It is possible for an object to have balanced forces acting on it and yet move in a vacuum.

When an object is at rest, the forces acting upon it are balanced - there are no unbalanced forces.

Balanced forces do not change its motion (no acceleration). Unbalanced forces changes the motion of the object (acceleration).

The 3 examples of unbalanced forces acting on an object are downward force, upward force, and drag force.

There's no such thing as an unbalanced force. A group of forces is a balanced or unbalanced group. An unbalanced group of forces acting an object causes the object to accelerate.

If the sum of the forces on an object do not equal zero, then the object will experience acceleration.

When the entire group of forces acting on an object is unbalanced,the object will accelerate.There's no such thing as "an unbalanced force".

An unbalanced group of forces on an object causes the object to accelerate.Its acceleration is (the vector sum of all the forces)/(the object's mass) .

balanced = no movement of the object unbalanced = the object moves

If the sum of all forces acting on one object is not exactly zero, the forces are said to be unbalanced. In that case, the object will accelerate.

An unbalanced group of forces acting on an object always changes the object's velocity.

When two forces acting on an object are equal, or balanced, that object stays still. When two forces acting on an object are UNequal, or unbalanced, that object will move the way the stronger force wanted it to move.

Differ... from what?Forces (acting on an object) are said to be BALANCED if the sum (i.e., the vector sum) of all such forces are equal to zero; UNBALANCED otherwise. Such an unbalanced force will result in an acceleration of the object.

The forces acting on the object become unbalanced.

Unbalanced forces (also known as net forces) on an object will result in the object's motion. The motion will exhibit acceleration since a net force is acting upon the object.

If there is an unbalanced force (also known as a "net force") acting on an object, the object will accelerate.

Forces don't affect forces. FORCES act on OBJECTS.If there is an unbalanced force, that means that the sum of all forces acting on an object is not zero.
