Unbalanced Forces and Motion What happens when multiple forces act on the same object?
Net Force Net Force is the difference of two or more forces acting upon an object. Current from riverForce from paddling 2000 N 1000 N
Unbalanced Force Unbalanced Forces happen when two unequal forces act on each other. Unbalanced forces set objects in motion. Force from kickers leg. Force of Gravity 100 N 600 N Net Force 500 N up.
Balanced Force Balanced Forces are two equal forces that cancel each other out. Balanced forces cause a net force of zero. Net Force Zero happens when two equal forces cancel each other out. The force of gravity pulls the vase towards the ground. The force of friction from the table pushes up against the vase canceling out the force of gravity. 30 N Net Force Zero
