A net force is the sum of all forces acting on an object.
A net force is capable of accelerating a mass.
For instance, if the wheels of a car push it forward with 5 Newtons and drag is 3 Newtons , the net force is 2 Newtons , forward.
How do you find the magnitude of the net force?
The magnitude of the net force acting on an object is equal to the mass of the object multiplied by the acceleration of the object as shown in the formula below.
What is the magnitude of the force?
The magnitude of the force is the amount of force usually expressed in numbers such as in 65 newtons.
What is the relationship between net force and balanced forces?
The net force is the combination of all of the forces acting on an object, which determines whether the velocity of the object will change. When the combination of forces acting on an object combines to produce a net force of zero, the forces are balanced.
