# How Do Unbalanced Affect Motion?

An unbalanced force can change an object’s motion. An unbalanced force acting on a still object could make the object start moving. An unbalanced force acting on a moving object could make the object change direction, change speed, or stop moving.

### What do unbalanced forces cause?

An unbalanced force causes the object on which it is acting to accelerate, changing its position, speed, or direction due to unequal forces on the same side. An unbalanced force causes the object on which it is acting to accelerate, changing its position, speed, or direction due to unequal forces on opposite sides.

### What is difference between balanced and unbalanced force?

In balanced forces, the magnitude of the two forces is equal, whereas, in the case of unbalanced forces, the magnitude of the two forces are unequal. Conversely, in unbalanced forces, the individual forces either act in same or opposite direction. Balanced forces cause a still object to remain at rest.

#### What are the example of unbalanced?

If you kick a football and it moves from one place to another, it means that unbalanced forces are acting upon it. Ball moves from one place to another after kicking it. This is an example of unbalanced force.

### How do unbalanced forces help in everyday life?

Unbalanced force is accountable to put the objects into motion, where the direction of motion depends on the force possessing greater magnitude. Unbalanced forces are responsible to cause motion in a stationary object, stop a moving object, change the speed of a moving object, change the shape of an object, etc.

## What happens when forces become unbalanced?

Unbalanced forces acting on an object cause the object’s motion to speed up, slow down, or stop. Thus, the unbalanced force causes a change in the direction of the motion as follows: The object moves away from the unbalanced force if it is a push, or toward the unbalanced force if it is a pull.

### What is the result of unbalanced forces called?

Disequilibrium is a result of unbalanced opposing forces, which in general, are called demand and supply. Therefore, when these two factors have an imbalance there is an existence of a shortage or surplus, which induces a change in the price.

### What is the result of unbalanced forces?

If an object has a net force acting on it, it will accelerate. The object will speed up, slow down or change direction. An unbalanced force (net force) acting on an object changes its speed and/or direction of motion. An unbalanced force is an unopposed force that causes a change in motion.

### What happens when forces are balanced?

When two forces acting on an object are equal in size but act in opposite directions, we say that they are balanced forces. If the forces on an object are balanced (or if there are no forces acting on it), this is what happens: a stationary object stays still.
