If the forces are balanced they will have no action or the object, if not they will accelerate the object in the resultant direction of the two forces..

When two forces are equal do you say they are magnetic?

No, you do not.You say they are equal; there is no other technically correct word or term.


What does newtons third law say about forces?

Newton's Third Law of Motion states that for every force there is an equal, opposite, and co-linear force countering the original force. An example of this would be the force of you, sitting in a chair, pressing down on the Earth, being balanced by an equal and opposite force of the Earth pressing up on you and the chair. Answer2: At Conservation of Energy, the forces sum to zero.


What is the resultant of two forces acting in opposite directions to each other?

Unequal combined forces trying to move in opposite directions would be the net force in one direction. Force is a vector quantity for any external effort that causes something to change a certain way.


What really are balanced forces?

A balanced force is when two equal forces are applied on an object pushing both ways. Also they are equal forces acting on an object in opposite directions.When something isn't moving the forces are balanced, eg. Gravity pulls a table down but that table is pushed up by the floor or the ground it stands on so doesn't move.An UNbalanced force is needed for something to change movement or change direction, eg. a seesaw moving up and down because the forces aren't equal.A balanced force is a force equally opposed by another force in the opposite direction, meaning that they cancel out each other so the object does not move, unlike an unbalanced force, where the object will move because one force over powers the other.When something isn't moving the forces are balanced, eg. Gravity pulls a table down but that table is pushed up by the floor or the ground it stands on so doesn't move.An UNbalanced force is needed for something to change movement or change direction, eg. a seesaw moving up and down because the forces aren't equal.Unlike balanced forces, we say unbalanced forces when two forces acting on an object are not equal in size.When a number of forces act on a body simultaneously and the resultant of these forces is zero, then the forces are said to be balanced.Moment=distance from pivot to source of force x forceNm= m x NMoments on either side of an object must be equal for the object to balance.e.g on a see-saw someone who weighs 1000N sits 1m from the pivot, and someone who weighs 2000N sits 0.5m from the pivot on the other side of the see-saw will balance as in this situation, on both sides of the see- saw Nm=1000A balanced force is where forces on opposite sides of the object are the same net force (for example, 15 N and -15 N) which makes for the object being at rest. Balanced net force on an object makes for the object ALWAYS being at rest. Also it has to be even on both sides to be a balanced force -Keyaira PennieBalanced forces do not cause a change in motion. They are equal in size and opposite in direction.


Why don't you move when you push on a sturdy wall?

Because of Newton's 3rd law, if you push on a wall with, let's say, 10 N, the wall will, by definition of the law, push back on you with 10N. The forces are balanced and you don't move backwards because the forces "cancel out" because they are equal and opposite, and if Fnet=0, we now acceleration must be 0.

According To Newtons 3rd Law Of Motion For Every Action There Is An Equal And Opposite Reaction Then How Come Things Move If Theres Going To Be Something Moving Them Back With Equal Force?

To say that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction is slightly misleading you, as these forces are NOT on the same object. Better to say 'if A exerts a force on B, then B exerts an equal and opposite force on A'. When I stand on my bathroom scales, I exert a downward force on the scales, which deflect until they exert an equal and opposite force on me, thus preventing me from falling. Acceleration occurs to ME when forces on ME are unbalanced. e.g. if I stood on a rocket the upward force of the rocket on me is greater than the downward force of gravity, so I would accelerate upwards. These are NOT action-reaction forces. What are action-reaction forces are the force I exert on the rocket and the force the rocket exerts on me.


If two equal forces act on an object in opposite directions the net force will be balanced?

Equal means the forces are of equal magnitude. And they act exactly in opposite directions. Then certainly the resultant effect will be zero. So we say that the forces are set in balanced condition. Hence balanced.


When two forces are equal we say they are?

What can you say about the sum of a number and its opposite?

They equal zero.

What type of force does an object have if its net force is equal to zero?

If the net force on an object is zero, we can say that the forces are balanced, or that they are in equilibrium(which really means the same thing). There may be forces acting on the object, but there is an equal and opposite force pushing or pulling in the opposite direction, and all the forces balance out. Alternatively, there may be no forces acting on the object at all.


Why the book stay stationary on table altough action and reaction forces are applied?

The action and reaction forces have equal magnitudes and opposite directions, so their vector sum is zero. We say the two forces are "balanced", and the net force on the book is zero, so the book doesn't accelerate.


If two sides of a triangle are of equal lengths what does that say about the angles opposite those sides?

The base angles of an isosceles triangle that has two equal sides are equal.


What type is this triangle two sides equal in length angles opposite equal sides are equal?

That's an "isosceles" triangle. By the way ... it's enough to say that two sides are equal. That automatically guarantees that the angles opposite them are equal.


What can you say about the forces acting on a stationary object?

The forces acting on a stationary object are balanced. If you were to add up all the forces (taking the directions into account, you would get a total of 0. There are always forces acting on a object, such as gravity, so you cannot say that there are no forces acting on it. You can say that the forces are balanced.
