# What is the movement of a stationary object?

## What is the movement of a stationary object?

Forces without motion. The purpose of this activity is to revise with pupils the idea that if an object is not moving there can be a number of forces acting on it that balance each other out.

## Which force moves a stationary object?

A force can make move an object at rest . Force is simply a Push / Pull . => a = acceleration produced . Examples of this are very common and we ourself move stationary objects move in our daily life.

Is used to move a stationary?

A force can move a stationary object Thus a ball at rest begins to move when a force is applied to it. 2)If we kick a stationary football kept on the ground, then the football starts moving. The force of our foot makes the stationary football to move. 3)The force of engine makes a stationery car to move.

### What is stationary in a velocity time graph?

Velocity-Time Graphs When the object is stationary, it is a straight horizontal line at 0. When the object is undergoing uniform motion, it is a straight horizontal line at vm sā1 v m s ā 1 , where v is the velocity of the object. For straight line with positive gradient, it means that the object is accelerating.

### How is a stationary object represented on a distance time graph?

The gradient of the line is equal to the speed. This means that the line is: horizontal for a stationary object (because the distance stays the same) a straight diagonal for an object moving at a constant speed.

How do you show stationary on a velocity time graph?

Acceleration is shown by a straight rising line. Deceleration is shown by a straight falling line. Constant speed is shown by a horizontal line. A horizontal line along the -axis shows the speed is zero, meaning that the vehicle has stopped, or is stationary.

## What does it mean when an object has negative acceleration?

According to our principle, when an object is slowing down, the acceleration is in the opposite direction as the velocity. Thus, this object has a negative acceleration. When an object is speeding up, the acceleration is in the same direction as the velocity. Thus, this object also has a negative acceleration.
