Forces acting on an object that is not moving are described as this?

It can be said that the net force applied on the object is zero or that the object is in translational equilibrium. Keep in mind that these terms can also be applied if the object is moving at a constant velocity.


If an object isn't moving the forces acting on an object are?

If an object is not moving OR if it is moving at constant velocity (i.e., it is not ACCELERATING):* The vector sum of the forces on the object is zero. * Also, the forces are said to be in balance.


Can an object be at rest if forces are being applied to it?

Yes, if the forces are equal and acting in opposite directions, the net force will equal zero and that object can be said to be at rest.


If an object is not moving usually there are what forces are acting on it?

If an object is not moving or if it is moving with a constant velocity (meaning there is no acceleration), the sum of the forces acting on it is equal to zero. A stationary object is said to be in static translational equilibrium, while an object with a constant velocity is said to be in dynamic translational equilibrium. Typically, an object at rest on the ground has two forces acting on it: Gravity and the Normal force of the ground. Normal force counters gravity and prevents things from falling through the ground.



When an object is not moving we say it is?

When an object is not moving, it is said to be stationary.



What describes unequal forces acting on an object?

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.


What does it mean when the forces applied to an object produce a net force of zero?

It means -- the vector sum of all individual forces on it is zero; -- the effect of all the forces is the same as if there were no forces acting on it; -- the forces on the object are said to be 'balanced'. Examples: -- 30 tough guys pulling on one end of a rope, 30 other tough guys pulling in the opposite direction on the other end of the rope, and the rope going nowhere; -- two little girls pulling hard on the same doll, and the doll not moving; -- two strong shoppers pulling hard in opposite directions on the same shopping cart, and not moving it.


What happens when unbalanced forces act on an object?

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.


When combined forces acting on an object does not equal zero?

In that case, the forces are said to be unbalanced.


Is a body at equilibrium must be at rest?

No, it can be moving. A body is said to be in equilibrium when the forces acting on it cancel each other out, that is, the body is not accelerating. Therefore an object might be moving at a constant speed and be considered in equilibrium.


If net force on an object is zero the forces are said to be what?

balanced --> the forces cancel each other. =================================


What two or more unequal forces acting on an object?

If two or more forces acting on an object don't add up to zero (i.e., when doing a vector addition), the forces are said to be UNBALANCED, and the object will accelerate.


Compare balanced and unbalanced forces?

If the vector sum of forces on an object is zero, the forces are said to be balanced. Otherwise they are said to be unbalanced. Unbalanced forces will cause an acceleration, according to Newton's Second Law (a = F/m, where F is the net force, that is, the vector sum of all forces acting on the object).


What are the forces acting on an object that cancel each other out called?

Forces that cancel each other out are said to be balanced.


WILL AN moving object keep on moving forever?

The Law of Inertia (Newton's First Law) implies that an object in motion will remain in motion unless a force is applied to stop it. That being said, most objects will naturally decelerate due to gravity or air resistance. Objects can only move forever in a perfect vacuum.


An object experiencing balanced forces?

An object experiencing balanced forces is said to be in equilibrium. Thus, unless an outside force acts upon the object, it will remain either stationary or at constant speed, it will not accelerate.



Do all moving objects have a natural tendency to slow down and stop?

No. All objects tend to adhere to their current speed (magnitude and direction), it will only change when a force is being applied on said object.


How did Galileo discredit Aristotle's assertion that a force is needed to keep objects moving?

Galileo came up with the idea of inertia. Not taking Aristotle's view that an object must have a force acting on it to keep moving, Galileo said that an object would move continuously in a straight line as long as no outside forces acted on it.


How do unbalanced forces differ?

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.


Is it possible for and object to be in motion if the object is moving in a straight line?

The answer to the question seems to be clearly given within the question. You have said that the object " ... is moving ... " in a straight line. Therefore we conclude that if you have been honest with us, then the object is certainly in motion.



Can a moving object have impulse in itself?

No. Impulse is a change in momentum and so a moving object with a constant velocity has no impulse. in real life air resistance imparts an impulse to the object slowing it down but the object cannot really be said to have impulse
