# What happens to an object when force is applied to it?

In general, when force is applied on any object it is accelerated in the direction of the applied force.

The equation for the force is F = m*a

where m = mass

a = acceleration

To consider gravity, we can re-write the above equation as F = m*g

where g = acceleration due to gravity (the gravitational constant) There may be an occasion where the applied force on an object is insufficient to break the existing dry friction, and the object will not move. In this case, the static and dynamic friction components "conspire" to hold the object in place. If the applied force exceeds the dry friction, the object will begin to accelerate, and the static friction will disappear. These are fundamental aspects of the laws of motion, and you can use the link below to learn more.

The object will not move!!!

### What happens when force is applied to an object?

When a force is applied to an object, it accelerates. for example, if you push an object, the object accelerates away from you and, eventually, will move away from you..

### What happens to a moving object when force is applied?

The object is accelerated in the direction of the net (or resultant) force.

### What happens when a unbalanced force is applied to moving object?

The object is accelerated in the direction of the net (or resultant) force.

### What is the definition of applied force?

a force which is applied to an object by a person or another object a force which is applied to an object by a person or another object

### What happens to the acceleration of the object when force applied reduced to one third?

F = M A Acceleration is directly proportional to force. When force applied to an object is reduced to one third, the object's acceleration is reduced to one third.

### What happens when the longer a force acts on moving object?

If a force is being applied to a moving object, it will change its velocity (it will accelerate) appropriately.

### The applied force?

is a force that is applied to an object by a person or another object.

### What happens scietifically when 1000 of force to an object with 1100N of resistance force?

What happens is that the resistance of 1100 newton is the MAXIMUM resistance. If a force of 1000 newton is applied, the actual resistance will also be 1000 newton. If a force greater than the maximum force of friction is applied, the object will start to move.

### Force is applied to an object and the object is moved over a distance in the same direction of the applied force is the definition of?

Work is applied to an object and the object is moved over a distance in the same direction of the applied force.

### What happens when you apply force in an object in space?

It accelerates as long as the force is applied, and after that it continues at a uniform speed and direction.
