Give reason for the following :

Can there be displacement of an object in the absence of any force acting on it?

Answer :

Yes, there can be displacement on an object even if there is no force acting on it.

Force = mass × acceleration




If a body possesses constant velocity then it will have some displacement but there is no change in velocity so the acceleration of body will be zero. If there is no acceleration then there will be no force acting on the body.
