Since energy cannot be destroyed but transformed the force that has been applied to the object has to be expressed as a change in the objects properties, such as its state of rest, speed or direction of travel, temperature etc.

### Why does object in motion stay in motion?

An object in motion stays in motion because it requires a force to change the motion. No force, no change.

### Can forces change an object motiin?

Yes, forces can change an object's motion. When a force is applied to an object, it can cause the object to accelerate, decelerate, or change direction. The change in motion is determined by the magnitude and direction of the force applied.

### Will an unalanced force acting on an object change the object motion?

Yes,unbalaced force may stop or change the direction of motion or accelarate the object.

### Does a force always change an objects motion?

it usually does, but if the force is balanced, it will not change the object's motion

### How can the motion of an object change?

By the application of force on the object.

### What always causes a change in motion of the object?

An applied force will change the motion of an object. Such as a thrust, or an impact.

### What three forces cause an object to change its motion?
