# A force is being applied on a body but it causes no acceleration. What possibilities may be considered to explain the observation?

The force we applied is less than frictional force .

Excellence Award Winner ( 7 times )

Since the acceleration is 0, the net force acting on the body must be 0. this can be explained by newton's second law of motion. thus there must be some other force may be friction acting on the body in a direction opposite to the applied force.

Computer Wizard

the force applied will be less than the limiting frictional force.

Mentor/ Tutor

there must be an equal amount of force from opposite direction(maybe frictional) resulting in no net force and so no acceleration.

The force may not be able to displace the body. Eg. Applying force on a wall by a man will not cause any acceleration.
