Physics Practicals Class 9

# Demonstration of Balanced & Unbalanced Force

• Teach science experiments in a gamified way
• Boost conceptual clarity and knowledge retention
• Aligned with National Education Policy 2020
• Helpful in getting NAAC accreditation
• CBSE, ICSE, and state boards aligned curricula
• Engaging simulations with easy-to-teach instructions

• Within this simulated setting, you'll explore how balanced forces result in static situations, while unbalanced forces cause objects to accelerate.
• Additionally, you'll apply your comprehension of the demonstration of balanced and unbalanced forces and also engage in interactive scenarios illustrating the concept of equilibrium and motion.
• The interactive procedures for studying linear motion faithfully replicate those found in a traditional physics lab, ensuring an immersive learning experience.
• Through this interactive involvement, you'll confront real-life situations, presenting practical scenarios for experimentation within the virtual realm.

• Experiment with varying force magnitudes and directions to observe their effects on objects' motion. Gain insights into Newton's laws of motion through hands-on experimentation within the virtual environment.

Description

Balanced Forces: Balanced forces occur when two or more forces acting on an object cancel each other out, resulting in zero net force. This means that the object remains at rest or moves with a constant velocity (constant speed and direction). For example, when a book is placed on a table, the force of gravity pulling the book downward is balanced by the normal force exerted by the table upward. This equilibrium results in a zero net force, causing the book to remain stationary.

Unbalanced Forces: Unbalanced forces occur when the net force acting on an object is not zero. This leads to a change in the object’s motion, causing it to accelerate, decelerate, or change direction. For example, when a car accelerates, the force exerted by the engine forward is greater than the force of friction and air resistance opposing it, resulting in an unbalanced force forward and causing the car to accelerate.
