# How do you change the direction of an object?

## How do you change the direction of an object?

We can describe how something moves by using terms such as ‘at rest’, ‘constant speed’, ‘speeding up’ and ‘slowing down’. A force can speed up or slow down an object. A force can change the direction in which an object is moving. A bigger force on an object will produce a bigger change in the motion.

## What could be needed in order to change the size of an object?

A force acting on an object causes the object to change its shape or size, to start moving, to stop moving, to accelerate or decelerate. When there’s the interaction between two objects they exert a force on each other, these exerted forces are equal in size but opposite in direction.

## How does a force change the position of an object?

An object is in motion when its position is changing. A force is a push or pull that can cause an object to move, stop, or change speed or direction. 3. The greater the force, the greater the change in motion.

## What brings a change in the size and shape of an object?

An external force may cause a change in the state of motion, size and shape of an object. The force may cause a change in the internal arrangement of molecules making up the object and depending upon the magnitude of the force, the size or shape of the object may change.

## How would you know if an object has changed position?

changes position requires a point of reference. An object changes position if it moves relative to a reference point. If the start line is your reference point, then your position has changed by 100 m relative to the start line, and motion has occurred.

## What factors impact how hard an object hits another object?

Objects change their motion because unbalanced forces act on them. There are four main factors that affect the motion of objects. These factors are force, friction, inertia, and momentum.

## What is needed to determine the position of an object?

the rate at which an object changes position. the rate of change in velocity. To identify an objects position, you must compare its location with that of another object or place. Because velocity includes direction, it is possible for two objects to have the same speed but different velocities.

## What speed occurs when an object is traveling at the same speed every second?

Constant speed occurs when an object travels at a steady rate with the same instantaneous speed for some period of time.

## How do you know if an object is in motion?

An object is in motion when its distance from another object is changing. A reference point is a place or object used for comparison to determine if something is in motion. An object is in motion if it changes position relative to a reference point. You assume that the reference point is stationary, or not moving.

## Why is it important to know if your reference point is moving?

Why is it important to know if your reference point is moving? because it will be difficult to determine which direction you are moving in, if moving at all. Displacement is the length and direction that an object has moved from its starting point.

## Do you think there is a difference between the distance an object travels and how far the object is displaced from its starting point?

People sometimes think that distance and displacement are just different names for the same quantity. However, distance and displacement are different concepts. If an object changes direction in its journey, the total distance traveled will be greater than the displacement between those two points.

## When can we say that an object has moved?

An object is moving if its position relative to a fixed point is changing. Even things that appear to be at rest move. When we describe the motion of one object with respect to another, we say that the object is moving relative to the other object.

## What is the constant in the circular motion of an object?

To summarize, an object moving in uniform circular motion is moving around the perimeter of the circle with a constant speed. While the speed of the object is constant, its velocity is changing. Velocity, being a vector, has a constant magnitude but a changing direction.
