# What is required to keep a body in motion?

## What is required to keep a body in motion?

The Newton’s first law of motion states that there will be no change in state of motion of body unless a net external force is applied.

## What are the characteristics of a moving body?

1. There must be a reference point (stationary object ) to describe the position of the given body. 2. The position of the given body must continuously change with time and with respect to the reference point.

A. Locomotion.

## What is required to stop the moving body?

A force is required to stop a moving object.

## What causes a body in motion?

Force is the cause of change in the state of motion of a body or an object. It is a quantitative description of an interaction that causes a change in an object’s motion. Force can cause an object to move or accelerate, to slow down or decelerate, to stop, or to change its direction.

## What is the example of moving body?

Lift is a device which is situated in big cities in the mall is an example of moving body where no work is done. Earth revolving around the sun, is not doing any work.

## Is a moving body a healthy body?

Moving helps maintain a healthy metabolism. Inactivity has been identified as one of the key risk factors for weight gain and obesity in numerous studies. You can keep these conditions at bay by increasing your physical activity. Your metabolic rate, often known as your metabolism, rises with regular activity.

## How does moving body work?

If you want to lift your arm, your brain sends a message to the muscles in your arm and you move it. When you run, the messages to the brain are more involved, because many muscles have to work in rhythm. Muscles move body parts by contracting and then relaxing.

## When the speed of a moving body is called?

The velocity of a body at any particular instant during its motion is called velocity. Standard VIII.

## What are 2 examples of inertia?

• Dust coming out of mat when beaten.
• Falling forward in transport when sudden breaks are applied.
• Leaves get detached from the tree when shaken hardly.
• Due to inertia, artificial satellites keep moving in a circular motion.

## Do we need force to keep the body moving?

No , it is not necessary to apply force to keep the body moving as such. One a body is set in motion, Unless there is any external force it will continue to move with present state of motion.
