5 Unbalanced Force Definition: Can cause an object to start moving, stop moving or change directionWill change the objects motionWill cause the object to accelerate in the direction of the greater force
6 The object will move in the direction of the greater force
7 The object will move in the direction of the greater force
8 Balanced Force Definition: Equal forces acting in opposite directions Will NOT change the objects motion
9 The object will not move because the forces are balanced The overall force = ZERO
10 Both forces are balanced…the object will not move
11 Class Discussion Look at the next few slide images and identify the forcesthat apply to each action.
