What causes a moving object to change direction?

Forces cause motion or the change in motion.


Is velocity is a change in an object's motion?

Velocity is a change in an object's motion OR direction of motion.


What causes an object to change speed of the direction of motion?

A force acting on the body, along its line of motion.


What is needed to cause the object at rest to move or an object in motion to change the direction or speed?

Force, which causes acceleration


What is a change in an object's motion called?

A change in speed or direction of motion is called "acceleration". If an object's speed or direction of motion changes, then the object is "accelerated".


Why is an object traveling in a circular motion?

acceleration is change in velocity.. and velocity constantly changes in circular motion, as the direction constantly changes. This constant change in velocity causes the object to accelerate.


How does air resistance affect the motion of an object?

it causes friction and slows down the object. if the air resistance is greater than the force applied then it can also change the direction of the motion of an object.


Why is an object traveling in a circular motion accelerating?

acceleration is change in velocity.. and velocity constantly changes in circular motion, as the direction constantly changes. This constant change in velocity causes the object to accelerate.


What causes an object in motion to stay in motion?

Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist a change in its motion.


Force can cause an object to change its speed and or direction?

A force can cause an object to change its speed if it has a component along the same direction with its speed. It can change its direction if it has a component in a different direction from the direction of its speed. so if a force is 1) parallel to the direction of speed and motion it only changes the speed. 2)If it makes an angle different than 90 degrees with the direction of motion it changes both direction and speed 3) if it is perpendicular(90 degrees) to the direction of motion it only changes the direction of motion and causes the object to make circular motion


What always causes a change in motion of the object?

An applied force will change the motion of an object. Such as a thrust, or an impact.


What causes an object to change position?

motion
