A Constant net force acts on an object. Describe the motion of the object.

A. Increasing Acceleration

B. Constant Velocity

C. Constant Acceleration

D. Constant Speed

I know it is not B, because for that to be true, there would have to be no net force (Objects that are in motion will stay in motion)

C

edit - woo! first post

anyway, when a force is acting then something is accelerating

the acceleration depends on the force i.e. constant force = constant acceleration

D? Shit, I don't know.

#4

C

That's what I was leaning towards

#5

I thought B. Constant acceleration = accelerating at the same m/s. If the object stays at a constant speed, there is no acceleration

#6

i reckon A, since something is acting on the object wouldn't it either slow down or speed up

But the force is constant.

#7

Yep, C. In future, Maths/Science Help thread please.

#8

C, if all forces are equal, the it must be a constant

#9

C, there's nothing that would make it increasing in acceleration.

#10

Yes, you are correct.

But if a net force is there (which is the sum of all forces being applied) Then there is a constant acceleration.

#11

C.

#12

C, F=ma, if F is constant, acceleration must be too.

#13

C, F=ma, if F is constant, acceleration must be too.

Thanks all for the speedy help

#15

Winner.
