And probably you might have understood the definition for the same.
But, what is the difference between Balanced force and Unbalanced force?
Here’s a quick look on the difference between these two forces:
|Sr No.||Balanced Forces||Unbalanced Forces|
|1.||Balanced forces are having the same magnitude.||Unbalanced forces are having a different magnitude.|
|2.||Balanced forces are having the opposite directions.||Unbalanced forces are having the same or different directions.|
|3.||If the forces are balanced, an object will not change its state of motion.||If the forces are unbalanced, the body will change its state of motion.|
|4.||Object at rest, stays at rest.||Object at rest, moves in the direction of force applied.|
|5.||Object in motion, stays in motion with same speed and same direction.||Object in motion, changes its speed and direction.|
|6.||Net force acting on an object is zero.||Net force acting on an object is not zero.|
|7.||There is no acceleration of an object.||There is acceleration of an object.|
|8.||Example of balanced force: Book lying on a table.||Example of unbalanced force: Pushing a heavy box.|
