When an object as a net force of zero acting on it, that means all of the forces are balanced.

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.


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 or the resultant force acting on an object in equilibrium?

The net or resultant force acting on an object in equilibrium is zero


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 is a zero net force?

If the net forces acting on an object amount to zero, that object is at rest.


What happens when the net force is zero?

Nothing. When the net force is zero, the object will not accelerate because their is no resultant force acting on the object.



When does an object move with constant velocity?

An object moves with constant velocity when there is no net force acting upon it. If there are no forces acting on an object, or if the forces acting on it "cancel out" leaving a net force of zero acting on the object, it will have zero acceleration. With a zero acceleration, the velocity of the object will be constant.


When a cat sleep on a table the net force on it is?

Net force is defined as the overall force acting on an object. When a cat sleeps on a table, the net force on it is zero. When a body is at rest the net force acting on the body is zero.


When does an object have a net force of zero?

If the net force on an object is zero, then the object is in equilibrium. This means there are balanced forces acting upon it, or none at all.


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 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


What is non- zero net force?

A non-zero net force is when the forces acting on an object are unbalanced and causes the object to accelerate.


What is the net force on an object that is acted on by balanced forces?

If all forces acting on the object are balanced (equal), the net force acting on the object is zero.


Is the net force zero when all the forces acting on an object are balanced?

Yes, the net force would be zero if all the forces acting on the object negated each other.


When only a pair of equal and opposite forces are acting on an object what is the net force acting on it?

If equal forces are acting on an object in exactly the opposite ways (direction), the net force on the object is zero, and it's acceleration will be zero.


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

If the net force acting on an object is zero, then the object has zero acceleration. It's speed is constant and in a straight line. The speed could also be constant zero.


Balancing the forces acting on an object give you the net force?

If the forces acting on an object are perfectly balanced, the resulting net force is equal to zero.


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

"The forces are balanced" means the same as "the net force is zero".



Can the net force acting on an object be zero while the torque is not?

No. There is a force acting upon an object, it is just in rotational form.


Can an object accelerate if there are no net forces?

An object's acceleration is directly proportional to the net force acting on it. Zero net force ===> Zero acceleration.


When falling object reaches terminal velocity, the net force acting on it is?

When an object is not accelerating or decelerating, it has a net force of zero.
