## What force causes the horse to move forward?

The correct answer is (D)**The Ground Exerts On Him**. When a horse pulls a wagon, the force that causes the horse to move forward is the force that pushes the ground in the backward direction.

## When a horse pulls a cart he moves forward by the force?

The horse pushes the ground in the backward direction and, in turn, the ground pushes the horse in the forward direction, according to **Newton’s third** law of motion.

## How does a horse cart move forward though the force with which the horse pulls the cart is equal and opposite to the force with which the cart pulls the horse?

When the horse walks in the forward direction (with the cart attached to it), it exerts a **force in the backward direction on the Earth**. An equal force in the opposite direction (forward direction) is applied on the horse by the Earth. This force moves the horse and the cart forward. As a result, the cart moves forward.

## What is the equal and opposite force for the force of the horse pulling forward on the wagon?

The equal and opposite force = The mass of the Wagon, m × The acceleration of the wagon, a + Any frictional force present, Whereby the force with which the horse pulls the wagon = F, mathematically, we have; The equal and opposite force = **-F = m × a +** .

## When a horse pulls a wagon the force that causes the horse?

When a horse pulls a wagon, the **ground is pushed backwards by the horse**. The ground exerts a forward force of equal magnitude due to the third law of motion. The waggon moves forward because the backward force applied by the vehicle is less than the force applied by the horse.

## Under what condition can a horse pull the cart?

According to Newton’s third law of motion, action force is equal to reaction but acts on two different bodies and in opposite derections. When a **horse pushes the ground**, the ground reacts and exerts a force on the horse in the forward direction. The force is able to overcome friction force of the cart and it moves.

## How many forces are exerted on the horse what is the net force on the horse?

What is the net force of the horse? There are **4 forces** exerted on the horse.

## Why can we accelerate forward when starting to run?

Q. Which best explains why we are able to accelerate forward when starting to run? As one leg moves backward, **it provides an equal and opposite force for the other foot to move forward**. … The friction with the ground provides an equal and opposite force forward.

## How can anything move if all forces are equal and opposite?

If the forces are unbalanced, the object will accelerate in the direction of the net force. … 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.

## Which cart is harder to push?

An **empty grocery cart** is easier to move because there is less mass in an empty cart compared to a full cart. Newton’s second law state that an object’s acceleration depends on the mass of the object and the force applied. Something with more mass will need a greater force to move it than something with less mass.
