## When you stand at rest on a pair of bathroom scales the readings on the scales will always Group of answer choices?

**When you stand at rest on a pair of bathroom scales, the readings on the scales will always** Selected **Answer**:add up to equal your weight. The force of friction on a sliding object is 10 N.

## When you stand on two bathroom scales with more weight on one scale than on the other the readings on both scales will?

In the **second** case, if **you** lean **more** on **one scale than** the **other**, **more than** half your **weight will** be read on that **scale** but less **than** half on the **other**. The total support force adds up to your **weight**. Suppose **you stand on two bathroom scales** with your **weight** evenly distributed between the **two scales**.

## What is the net force on a bathroom scale when a person stands on it?

**What is the net force on a bathroom scale** when a 110-pound **person stands on it**? Answer: Zero–the **scale** is at rest.

## When an apple that weighs 1 N is dropped and freely falls the net force on the apple is?

when an **apple that weighs 1N is dropped and freely falls, the net force on the apple is**. **1N**.

## What is the net force on a bathroom scale when a 110 pound person stands on it?

**What is the net force on a bathroom scale when a 110 pound person stands on it**? Zero, as the **scale** is at rest. The **scale** reads the support **force** (which has the same magnitude as **weight**), not the **net force**. Suppose you **stand** on two **bathroom scales** with your **weight** evenly distributed between the two **scales**.

## When a ball falls downward it may have a net force?

Terms in this set (19) **When a ball falls downward, it may have a net force**: of zero.

## Can you use 2 scales to weigh yourself?

**If you** have **two scales**, the **two scales** together must be resisting your total weight. A unit of your weight being resisted by **one scale**, is already being resisted, so it will not be resisted by the other **scale**. So the total resistance is proportional to your total weight, so the sum of the **two scales would** be correct.

## When you stand at rest on a bathroom scale How does your weight compared?

**When you stand at rest on a bathroom scale, how does your weight compare** with **the** support force from **the scale**? **Your weight is** equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to **the** support force from **the scale**. A bowling ball at **rest is** in equilibrium.

## Does the scale read more less or the same weight when you are standing on one foot?

**Weight** is the force of gravity acting on an object. Regardless of whether **you stand** on two **feet** or **one foot**, the force of gravity acting on **your** body as **you stand** on a bathroom **scale** is the **same**. Although the pressure increases, the **weight** remains constant.

## Are you measuring mass or weight when you use a grocery scale?

**Scales measure weight**, which is the force acting on a **mass** that is equal **to** the object’s **mass** times its acceleration due **to** gravity. A **scale** can’t **measure mass** directly, because the weighing mechanism and the **weight** of any given object are dependent on local gravity.

## Is inertia The reason for moving objects?

Yes, **inertia** keeps **objects** at rest, at rest and **objects** in motion, in motion until acted upon by an outside force.

## Can an object be moving and still be in equilibrium?

An **object can** be **moving and still be in equilibrium**, provided there is no acceleration.

## When you push against a wall What pushes back?

According to Newton’s third law of motion, forces always act in equal but opposite pairs. Another way of saying this is for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. This means that **when you push** on a **wall**, the **wall pushes back** on **you** with a force equal in strength to the force **you** exerted.

## When the net force on an object is zero its acceleration?

Newton’s First Law can be seen to be the special case in the Second Law when F, the **net force**, is **zero**. When that happens, the **acceleration** a must also be **zero**. Since **acceleration** is given by the change of velocity divided by elapsed time, the velocity doesn’t change.

## What is the net force on an apple that weighs 1 N?

The **apple** is held at rest, therefore, the **net force** is 0N. When you drop the **apple** the **net force** on the **apple** is just due to its weight W = **1N**.
