What is a Resultant Force?
This is a single force that has the same effect on the object as all the individual forces acting together.
1 of 8
How do you work out the Resultant Force?
An object may have several different forces acting on it, which can have different strengths and directions. But they can be added together to give the resultant force
2 of 8
What is the resultant force when the forces are balanced?
When all the forces are balanced, the resultant force is zero.
3 of 8
What is the resultant force when the forces aren't balanced?
When all the forces are not balanced, the resultant force is not zero.
4 of 8
What is the effect on a stationary object if the resultant force acting on it is zero?
The object will remain stationary.
5 of 8
What is the effect on a stationary object if the resultant force acting on it is not zero?
The object will accelerate in the direction of the resultant force
6 of 8
What is the effect on a moving object if the resultant force acting on it is zero?
The object will continue to move at the same speed in the same direction
7 of 8
What is the effect on a moving object if the resultant force acting on it is not zero?
The object will accelerate in the direction of the resultant force
