What would you like to do?

# What do we call the motion of a body when only the force of gravity is acting on the body?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

#### already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

# What is the study of forces acting on bodies whether at rest in motion?

It is generally known as Newtonian mechanics, or just mechanics.

downward motion

# What is the motion of a body called when only the force of gravity is acting on the body?

it is called free fall and its right if you put inertia

freefall.

zero velocity =)

# What is an object called when the only force acting upon it is gravity?

Let me think.......Why should I tell?

Free fall.

# What is the motion of a body when only the force of gravity is acting on it?

The motion of a body will be being drawn towards the center of the earth where it is sugested gravity is centered. Our moon is being drawn towards the center of the earth, but

# What is it called when the motion of a body when only gravity is acting on the body?

  You're probably thinking of the term 'free-fall' or 'freely falling', or in relativity you might say it follows a 'geodesic'.

# Force of gravity acting on a body?

The force of gravity on every object on Earth is the product of 9.8 meters per second2 times the object's mass. We call the size of that force the object's "weight" on Earth.

# Is it theory or law if the body in motion stays in motion unless acted upon force?

This is according to newton's II law of motion

# What is force acting on a body with uniform motion?

A body in uniform motion has no net force acting on it. That means that either there are no forces at all, or else that all the forces acting on it add up to zero.

# What is direction of motion of a body if a number of force acts on it?

You can't tell, without a lot more information. -- If the body was at rest when the forces began to act on it, then it'll move in the direction of the vector sum of the f

# How do a body in motion or at rest react when acted by a force?

It will accelerate in the direction of the force (Or decelerate if the force is opposite to the direction of motion). The amount of acceleration is found by the formula a=F/m
