Forces Foldable Net Force Balanced Force Unbalanced Force
Net Force Definition: The net force is the overall force acting on an object All of the forces added together
All forces combine!
Unbalanced Force Definition: Can cause an object to start moving, stop moving or change direction Will change the objects motion Will cause the object to accelerate in the direction of the greater force
The object will move in the direction of the greater force
Balanced Force Definition: Equal forces acting in opposite directions Will NOT change the objects motion
The object will not move because the forces are balanced The overall force = ZERO
Both forces are balanced…the object will not move
Class Discussion Look at the next few slide images and identify the forces that apply to each action.
