# What must a moving body undergo?

## What must a moving body undergo?

Hence, a moving body must undergo a change of position.

## What is required to cause a change in the motion of a body?

If a body experiences an acceleration ( or deceleration) or a change in direction of motion, it must have an outside force acting on it. Outside forces are sometimes called net forces or unbalanced forces.

## What does the force change in a moving body?

Forces affect how objects move. They may cause motion; they may also slow, stop, or change the direction of motion of an object that is already moving. Since force cause changes in the speed or direction of an object, we can say that forces cause changes in velocity. Remember that acceleration is a change in velocity.

## What is the change in motion of a body?

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 are the two 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.

## Can a body undergo relative motion?

Firstly, motion is always relative and not absolute. I.e it is always expressed with respect to a frame of reference. Mostly the frame of reference is stationary and hence the motion is called simply motion.

## What is Newton’s 2 law?

Newton’s second law is a quantitative description of the changes that a force can produce on the motion of a body. It states that the time rate of change of the momentum of a body is equal in both magnitude and direction to the force imposed on it.

## What does ∑ F stand for?

Mathematically, the second law is most often written as. 4.2Fnet=maorΣF=ma, where Fnet (or ∑F) is the net external force, m is the mass of the system, and a is the acceleration. Note that Fnet and ∑F are the same because the net external force is the sum of all the external forces acting on the system.

## What does Newton’s first law say?

Newton’s first law: An object at rest remains at rest, or if in motion, remains in motion at a constant velocity unless acted on by a net external force.

## What is the SI unit of force?

The SI unit of force is the newton, symbol N. The base units relevant to force are: The metre, unit of length — symbol m. The kilogram, unit of mass — symbol kg.

## What is an example of a force can stop a moving body?

Example of force stoping a body: A fielder on the ground stops a moving ball by applying a force with his hands. Was this answer helpful?

## Can a force change the body?

A force can change the state of the body, speed and direction of motion of the body, and the shape of the body.

## What are the 4 types of motion?

• linear.
• rotary.
• reciprocating.
• oscillating.

## What is an example of change motion?

A heavy box at rest is pushed to move it from one room to another. This changes the state of motion of the box. A player pushes a football using his foot. This changes the state of motion of the ball.

## What is it called when there is a change in motion?

The answer is that a change in motion is equivalent to a change in velocity. A change in velocity means, by definition, that there is an acceleration. Newton’s first law says that a net external force causes a change in motion; thus, we see that a net external force causes acceleration.

## Which type of motion does a body undergo when moving in a haphazard manner?

Random motion is defined as the motion of an object with no specific path. It is a type of motion in which the direction and speed of an object change continuously.
