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.

Answer :

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.
