Classical Mechanics

# Newton's First Law

In the absence of friction (or any other kind of dissipation, like wind), a force is needed to make a moving object keep on moving. True or False?

What is the net force required to maintain the movement of a $$5000\text{ kg}$$ object moving at a constant velocity of $$2500\text{ m/s} ?$$

An object that is neither accelerating nor decelerating has no net force acting on it. True or false?

If the kinetic friction force acting on a sliding crate has a magnitude of $$200\text{ N},$$ how much force must be applied to maintain a constant velocity?

If the forces acting on a body are balanced, then the body $$\text{_________}.$$
