### Why it is easier to balance a bicycle when in motion than when it is at rest?

It is easier to balance a bicycle when it is rolling forward than when it is at rest because when rolling forward you can easily move the support points, the tire contact patches from side to side by merely steering the front wheel and thus keep them under the center of mass.

### Why it is eay to balance bicycle in motion then at rest?

It is easier to balance a bicycle rolling forward than at rest because when rolling forward, you can move the support points, the tire contact patches, from side to side merely by steering the front wheel and thus keep them under the center of mass.

### How can a force produce motion on a bicycle?

Pushing down on the pedal will cause the bike to move forward.

### How physics affects flying?

gravity holds you down wings + forward motion = lift thrust = forward motion air resistance = resistance to forward motion thin air at altitude is easier and cheaper to get through

### What is the motion transformation system of a bicycle?

A reciprocating movement (up &amp; down) of the rider's legs gets turned into a linear motion as the bike moves forward.

### Why would it be beneficial for a bicycle to have a low center mass when the rider rounds a turn?

The torque caused by gravity will be less because the distance between the pivot point (bicycle wheel touching ground) and center of mass would decrease and so on it would be easier to balance the torque with small changes in direction of motion

### Why a person riding a bicycle fly forward off when hitting a rock explain on the basis of newton's first law?

Okay, so Newton's First Law of Motion states: An object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. Okay, so with that in mind, a cyclist is moving forward. The rock is large enough to stop the bicycle. However, the cyclist not being attached to the bicycle, will tend to stay in motion, lauching said cyclist over the handlebars.

### What could you do to ensure your bicycle efficiently changes the work input into forward motion?

Keep all the parts of the drivetrain properly cleaned, lubed and adjusted.

### What is the resulting motion of forces acting on a unbalanced bicycle?

Constant acceleration is the resulting motion of forces acting on an unbalanced bicycle.

### What is the definition of forward motion force?

The definition of "forward motion" is simply the act of moving forward. Therefore, forward motion force is a force that moves something forward.

### When riding a bicycle past the building you're not moving relative to the?

The bike. Even though you and the bike are in motion the positions do not change.

### How do you do bicycle stunts?

Bicycle stunts require a lot of practice starting with a stand or maintaining balance without motion of the bicycle. The more difficult and innovative stunts are performed gradually with slight variations of stunts already mastered with help of a colleague although there may be many falls before perfecting it.
