# Can there be displacement of an object in the absence of any force acting on it? Think. Discuss this question with your friends and teacher.

Yes, the given situation is true as we known that F = m × a

Now, when force F = 0,

Then, m × a = 0

Since ‘m’ cannot be zero, therefore, when force F = 0 then acceleration ‘a’ = 0

In such a situation, either the object is in uniform motion in a straight line or it is at rest (not moving). In the first case, there is a displacement of the object without any force acting on it.
