A box initially at rest has two forces of eqaul, but small magnitudes applied to it. One force points in the positive y direction, the other in the negative x direction. Which of the following describes the motion of the box?
~The box will accelerate along a line 45 degress clockwise from the xaxis
~The box will remain at rest since the forces cancel
~The box will move at a a constant velocity along a line 45 degrees clockwise from the xaxis
~the box will be ripped into two pieces, one goes in the +y direction the other in the xdirection

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Newton's first law of motion is often stated as. An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If two individual forces are of equal magnitude and opposite direction, then the forces are said to be balanced

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1443410685221:dw You think its balanced or unbalanced?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0unbalanced? wouldn't it be balanced if say one was in the y direction and the other was in the positive y direction?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, +y direction and y direction of same magnitude are balanced. But this says positive y direction and negative direction with equal magnitude right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah but one is in the x direction and one is in the y so would they still be balanced?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Opposite force and equal magnitude=balanced You said it was balanced. The force acting on the box is not opposite to each other. (Refer to my diagram and question.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i said it was unbalanced _ i just need to know if this is effecting velocity or acceleration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Read the last sentence in Newton's First Law of Motion. Change in speed means there is an acceleration. No change in speed means no acceleration.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I never said ti was balanced you asked is it balanced or unbalanced i answered unbalanced? because if it was opposite it would be y vs +y . you said correct that y and +y would be balanced. and i asked would it still be considered balanced since one is up and one is to the left not down vs. up.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh. Because most people that answers me just say the choices without explanation. I like how you didnt just say the choice. The way you phrased looks like it can have both meanings lol.
