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