Since force is a function of acceleration and an object at rest has zero acceleration, then then net force is zero as well.

What is no net force between object and its surroundings?

If there is no net force acting on an object then the movement of the object doesn't change. If it is sitting still, then it remains sitting still. If it is moving, then it continues moving at the same speed in the same direction.


If an object is nonmoving is the net force working on it zero?

Yes, but an object with net force of zero may still be moving. The net force is zero if the object is not accelerating.


Can the net force of an object be zero and still accelerate?

If the net force acting on the object is zero, them it can't accelerate.


What describes the forces on an object with a net force of zero?

An object at rest, or an object with a constant velocity are the two possible states of an object with zero net force. An object with zero acceleration has zero net force. There many be several forces acting on the object, such as the force of gravity and the normal force of the ground. Even though an object sitting on the ground has two forces acting on it (gravity, and the normal force) the object does not accelerate because these forces are equal and opposite. An object with zero net force has all forces acting on it equally balanced and cancelling out


How does the net force on an object determine the motion of the object?

If there is a net force of 0 acting on an object then the object is either stationary or moving at a constant velocity. If the net force is not zero the object will accelerate in the direction of the net force.


What do you call the overall force acting on an object?

It is referred to as the Net Force.To get the Net Force, one must add and subtract all of the forces acting on an object.So for an object at rest sitting on a table or some other surface, one knows the net force would be 0 Newtons.So, once you find the force of gravity, you know that the normal force will be equal to the force of gravity.It would be the net force.


If the net force on an object is zero then the object has?

If the net force acting on an object is zero, it has no acceleration.


What is the net force on an object at rest?

The net force on an object at rest is 0.


What is a net force and how do you measure the net force of an object?

The net force on an object is the vector sum of all forces acting on the object. Since force = mass x acceleration, if the object is not accelerating, then the net force is zero. So to measure the net force, you need to observe the acceleration of the object, then multiply by the mass.


What is the net force an object with a balanced net force?

If the total group of all forces acting on an object is balanced, then the net force on the object is zero.


What is Net Force on a object?

The net force of an object is defined as the total force that is acting on a specific object. Net force is also referred to as total force in physics.


Are net forces and unbalanced forces the same thing?

Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.Net force is the sum of all forces that act on an object. An unbalanced force means that net force is not equal to zero. If that is the case, the object will accelerate.


If we are told that an object has a constant velocity what can we say about the force on that object?

you can say that there is no net force on the object; that is, the net force is zero


Unballenced forces acting on an object will change its what?

A net force (unbalanced force) will cause an object to accelerate in the direction of the net force. A net force will change the momentum of an object.


What is the net force acting on an object is zero?

the net force acting on an object is zero. what is it


What hapPens to the net force of the object if it is at rest?

In that case, the net force on the object is zero.


When the net force acting on an object is zero the force is?

When the net force acting on an object is zero, then all the forces on the object are balanced.


What is net force on an object when the forces on that object are balanced?

Net force is zero when all forces on the object are balanced


What will a object do when the net force is not zero?

-- When the net force on an object is not zero, the object undergoes accelerated motion.-- The magnitude of the acceleration is the ratio of the net force to the object's mass.-- The direction of the acceleration is the same as the direction of the net force.


A simple net force definition?

A net force is a measure of the force being exerted on an object; zero net force means an object is at rest or moving at a constant speed.Definition of net force:The net force on an object is the vector sum of all individual forces acting on it.


How is the acceleration of an object related to the net force acting on the object?

The net force of an object is the total force the object has and the direction it is going. An acceleration is a change in that force so the acceleration then directly influences the magnitude and direction of the original net force.


When the amount of net force exerted on an object is doubled the acceleration of the object will be?

Acceleration is directly proportional to the net force on an object. Doubling the net force doubles the object's acceleration.


When on an object are balanced what is the net force of the object?

When the forces are balanced, the net force is zero, by definition. "Net force" refers to the vector sum of all the forces acting on an object.


How does a net force of zero affect a moving object?

A net force of zero will have no effect on a moving object. If there is a net force of zero on an object then the object will continue moving at a constant speed in the same direction.


What happens to an object of there is a net force acting on the object?

It accelerates in the direction of the net force, with an acceleration equal to (net force) divided by (the object's mass).
