# Can balanced forces stop a moving body?

## Can balanced forces stop a moving body?

No, Balance forced cannot stop a moving object because net force is zero . Only unbalanced forces can stop a moving object. A balanced in the first can not even move a body because forces acting on both the sides are equal.

### What forces act on a still object?

The three main forces that stop moving objects are friction, gravity and wind resistance. Equal forces acting in opposite directions are called balanced forces. Balanced forces acting on an object will not change the object’s motion. When you add equal forces in opposite direction, the net force is zero.

#### What forces can change the shape of an object?

When a force acts on an object, the object may change shape by bending, stretching or compressing – or a combination of all three shape changes.

What is the combination of forces acting on an object?

Net Force = The combination of all forces acting on an object is called the net force. Whenever there is a net force acting on an object, the forces are unbalanced. Unbalanced forces can cause an object to start moving, stop moving, or change direction.

What two forces are always acting on you?

Newton’s Third Law of Motion: Action and reaction forces always occur in pairs.

## What happens when two forces are acting in the same direction?

If two forces act on an object in the same direction, the net force is equal to the sum of the two forces. This always results in a stronger force than either of the individual forces alone.

### What causes objects to move?

For an object to move, there must be a force. A force is a push or pull that causes an object to move, change direction, change speed, or stop. Not all forces cause motion, however. Some forces, like gravity and friction, resist or work against movement.

#### Can balanced force change the shape of an object?

Balanced forces can change the shape of the object. For example: when a balloon is pressed between hands, then balanced forces (equal and opposite forces) act on the balloon due to which the shape of the balloon changes.

What 3 things can a force change about an object?

A force can do one of four things to an object:

• Make it speed up – accelerate.
• Make it slow down – decelerate.
• Change its direction.
• Change its shape.

Why does changing the shape of an object?

Changing the shape of an object will not change the density of an object because the mass and the volume stays the same. So then the density stays the same. Why does changing the shape of an object have no effect on the density of that object?

## Does changing shape change density?

Changing the shape does not change its mass or volume, so density remains the same.

### Is it possible to change the density of an object?

The density of an object can change if either the mass or volume of the object is changed. Fluids, such as water, have a certain density. If an object is more dense than water, it will sink; if it is less dense than water, it will float.

#### Why does size and shape not affect density?

Even though it may seem as if the clay is more compressed (tightly packed) in the oval than in the hollow square, the spacing between those tiny particles that make up the clay is constant (does not change). Therefore, the shape of a material/substance does not affect its density.

Does density affect weight?

Gravity does not affect density whereas on the other hand gravity directly affects weight. To calculate density mass is divided by volume, whereas to calculate weight mass is multiplied with gravity.

Does density change when cut in half?

What happens to the density of an object if the object is cut in half? The density remains the same because cutting the object in half will divide the mass & volume by the same amount. Also, the density of a substance remains the same no matter what size it is. All matter has its own unique density.

## Will density change if volume changes?

Density is mass per unit volume. The relation between density and volume is directly proportional. That is any change in volume will result in the change in its density and vise-versa.

### What is the relationship between volume and mass?

Mass and volume are two units used to measure objects. Mass is the amount of matter an object contains, while volume is how much space it takes up. Example: A bowling ball and a basketball are about the same volume as each other, but the bowling ball has much more mass.

#### Are mass and volume directly proportional?

We can say that the volume of the object is directly proportional to its mass. As the volume increases the mass of the object increases in direct proportion. The gradient of the graph equals the density of the material.

Can you describe a pattern for how the change in mass affects the change in volume?

A: As Mass increases, volume increases too. Can you describe a pattern for how the change in mass affects the amount of water displaced (change in tank level)? A: As mass increases, the amount of water displaces increases. As mass decreases, the amount of water displaces decreases.

Can two objects have the same density?

Long answer: Density is generally regardless of how big or small a substance is and is neither dependant on its shape. A statue made of gold and a brick made of gold might have different masses and volume but they have same density. Mind you, two different materials of same shape and size do not have the same density.

## What two factors determine density?

The mass of atoms, their size, and how they are arranged determine the density of a substance. Density equals the mass of the substance divided by its volume; D = m/v. Objects with the same volume but different mass have different densities.

### Why does weight change but not mass?

While the weight of an object varies in proportion to the strength of the gravitational field, its mass is constant, as long as no energy or matter is added to the object. For example, although a satellite in orbit (essentially a free-fall) is “weightless”, it still retains its mass and inertia.

#### Does more weight mean more mass?

So, in general, low reps with heavy weight tends to increase muscle mass, while high reps with light weight increases muscle endurance. Lifting heavy weights builds muscle, but constantly upping the weight exhausts the body. The nervous system must also adjust to the new fiber activation in the muscles.
