    That is not enough information.

    Look, is there friction? Drag? Under the circumstances you described, the best I can do is say, "F=0", as a body moving at 29 ms^-1 will continue as such without any forces acting on it.

    so what can cause a bodies velocity to change

    An acceleration will cause a body's velocity to change. Acceleration components in force, impulse, etc. exist.

    i think u are rigth but better say that the unbalanced force will change the motion .try to apply newton s 2 law .only an unbalanced force can change motion

    Alright, so I should say a "nonzero acceleration" will change motion. Gravity, for instance, is a fundamental interaction that imparts acceleration.

    i do not understand u . but i think to close the topic lets just apply newtons 1 law of inertia to the question

    no NET FORCE is required to keep the body in motion
