resultant forces

HideShow resource information
What does resultant force mean ?
Overall force of where the object will move
1 of 6
What is a reaction force ?
Acts upwards on an object
2 of 6
What would happen without a reaction force
The action force ( gravity) would push the object to accelerate down
3 of 6
What else does a resultant force mean ?
Change in velocity
4 of 6
If two forces are equal and are acting on each other opposite ?
It would cancel each other out and object would not move
5 of 6
A car is driving with a force of 1200N and the air resistance is 600N what is the resultant force
1200N-600N= 600N
