# When does force cause motion?

An unbalanced force causes motion. This occurs when the net force does not equal zero.

A force will cause motion, specifically it causes acceleration, whenever it is unbalanced by an opposing force, such as friction.

A force is an application of energy to cause a change in motion.

A force, such as an unbalanced force, causes an object to move, while balanced forces, where two sides are equal, does not cause a change in motion.

No, if the opposite force is greater than the force you are exerting, then it will not move. Force- A push or pull Motion- Change in position

Forces which cancel each other will not cause motion. For example, force of normal usually cancels force of gravity.Force of friction does not actually cause motion, but rather opposes it.If there is no motion, any forces must be balanced. That means that the sum of all forces on an object must be zero.

Frictional Force. It is a 'reactive' force, and can only respond when another Force is applied. It can SLOW a motion, or cause a change in Direction.

It will cause acceleration in the direction of the net force.

A balanced force will NOT cause a change in motion.

A force applied to a moving object in the opposite direction of its motion causes its velocity to decrease.

The three forces that causes an object to change its motion are the gravitational force, the normal force and the frictional force.

An unbalanced force will cause an acceleration and a change in motion.

Yes. It is one of the laws of motion (the second law) that says that an object in motion will not change its motion unless acted on by and outside force. You'll have to add more foce to cause the object to speed up. Correction: No. The key word in the question is "increasing." A constant force will cause a constant rate of acceleration. Increasing force will cause an increasing rate of acceleration.

A force acting on the ball, at an angle to its line of motion, will cause its direction of motion to change.

This question is very unclear. Under the right circumstances any force will cause a change in motion. Whenever the net force, in a given direction, on a body is greater than zero, that body will move.

Not exactly. 'Motion' or 'change of motion' are not force. But the only way to change an object's motion is to cause the group of forces on it to be unbalanced. If the object's motion is changing, then you can be sure that the group of forces acting on it is unbalanced.

No, a force is not a motion. A force may produce motion of a mass.

Any force in the opposite direction to the object's motion.

Every force. mechanical, electrical, magnetic, gravitational, etc.

-- First of all, motion doesn't require any force.-- If the forces on an object are unbalanced, then the object's motion changes. Always.-- If the forces on an object are balanced, then the object's motion doesn't change.
