1. When do you get zero resultant force?

  • When all the forces act in opposite directions
  • When there are no other forces
  • When all the forces are balanced
  • When the push is stronger than the pull

2. Name two factors which affect acceleration

  • Mass and size of force
  • Size of force and speed
  • Mass and speed
  • Weight and direction

3. What is the resultant force?

  • The single force which has the same effect on the object as all the individual forces acting together.
  • The single force which has the opposite effect as all the forces acting on it.
  • The opposite force.
  • The force which pushes an object back.

4. What is the equation which calculates force?

  • F=A/P
  • F=MxA
  • F=PxA
  • F=M/A

5. What does the non-zero resultant force do to the object?

  • Nothing
  • The object travels in the direction of the resultant force or accelerates in the direction of the resultant force
  • The object becomes stationary
  • The object travels in the opposite direction to the resultant force

Remember that in an equation:

small letter m is used for mass

small letter a is used for acceleration

To improve this quiz include the units:

F stands for force in newtons (N)

a stands for acceleration in metres per second squared (m/s2)

m stands for mass in kilo gram (Kg)
