If there be net force then it has to be accelerated. So the magnitude of the speed cannot remain the same. But in case of a body moving with a constant speed along the circular path, the forces will be centripetal and centrifugal both acting in opposite direction. So the body would not have displacement along the radial path.

When do forces balance?

Balanced forces occur when a body is at rest, and when a body is moving at a constant speed in a constant direction.


Are the forces balanced or unbalanced on a motorboat coasting at a constant speed?

That would be balanced, because the motorboat is not increasing in speed or decreasing in speed.


Forces on steady speed on plane?

thrust, lift, drag and weight. these are all balanced forces as it is travelling at a constant speed.


What is an exapmle of a balanced force?

AN airplane traveling @ a constant speed. It's air friction is balanced by the applied force of it's engine.


What is the motion of an object when the forces on an objects are balanced?

Then the effect is as if there are no forces on it at all, and it moves in a straight line with constant speed.

How do you identify balanced forces?

The object the forces are acting on will not move, or will be moving at a constant speed (e.g. not accelerating). This is called being in 'equilibrium'.


How can you be accelerating and traveling at a constant speed?

You can be accelerating and traveling at a constant speed if you change directions.


When forces acting on a moving object are what the object will travel at a constant speed?

You're fishing for "balanced", but that still doesn't make the statement true.An object on a curved path can have constant speed even though the forceson it are not balanced.


What are the forces on a falling object are balanced and the object falls with constant speed?

The forces are balanced because they are falling at a constant speed. According to Newtons first law of motion an object will keep moving unless an unbalanced or net force acts upon it. If we may step in here for the novel purpose of answering the question . . . The balanced forces on an object that is falling with constant speed are typically the force of gravity (the object's 'weight') and the equal and opposite force of air resistance.
