Q. 54.5( 13 Votes )

Detect the errors in the following statement and rewrite it making necessary corrections.

“Because the car is at rest, no forces are acting on it”.

Answer :

To get the statement correct we must understand the concept of net force . The resultant or the total sum of all the forces acting on the body are equal to the net force acting on that body , net force means total force acting on the body.


Thus the statement can be corrected in two ways :-


a) “Because the car is at rest, no net force is acting on it.” , or


b) “Because the car is at rest, two forces are acting on it they are gravitational force(gravity) and the normal which sum up to zero.”
