# When a horse pulls a cart the force that causes the horse to move forward is the force?

Contents

The force in turn pulls the cart as the horse moves forward. So, the movement of the horse is due to the force exerted by the ground. This force is known as friction force.

## When a horse pulls a wagon the force that causes the horse to move forward is the force a he exerts on the wagon B the wagon exerts on him c he exerts on the ground d the ground exerts on him?

When the horse pulls the wagon, it pushes the ground in the backward direction. Due to the third law of motion, the ground exerts a forward force which has the same magnitude. As the backward force applied by the wagon is weaker than the force applied by the horse, the wagon moves in the forward direction.

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

The forces on the cart include the forward force the horse exerts on the cart and the backward force due to friction at the ground, acting on the wheels. At rest, or at constant velocity, these two are equal in size, because the acceleration of the cart is zero.

## What Newton’s law is horses pulling a carriage?

A horse is pulling a carriage on a level ground. The horse knows the third law of motion. He tells the carriage that he will exert a force forward, and the carriage will exert a force equal to the horse’s force but in opposite directions. Therefore, the horse explained, he can never pull the carriage forward.

## What is the equal and opposite force for the force of the horse pulling forward on the wagon as described by Newton’s third law?

The equal and opposite force = The mass of the Wagon, m × The acceleration of the wagon, a + Any frictional force present, … The equal and opposite force = -F = m × a + .

## Does a horse push or pull a wagon?

The only real way a horse can pull a load is if you tie it to their tail and they walk forward. Or the horse could use it’s teeth to pull on something small and light weight. A horse pushes a wagon, a plow, a sled, a log, etc. An ox does the same thing, it pushes a load with it’s shoulders.

## Why does horse has to apply more force to start?

When the horse is applying force to start the cart it has to overcome static friction and to keep the cart in motion,the horse has to overcome sliding friction. But static friction is more than sliding friction ,so the horse, pulling a cart has to apply a greater force to start the cart than to keep the cart in motion.

## Does an object’s inertia depend on its mass?

The tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion varies with mass. Mass is that quantity that is solely dependent upon the inertia of an object. The more inertia that an object has, the more mass that it has.

## Which is real law of motion Why?

If no external force acts on a body, then F = 0, since f = ma, a = 0 because mass of a body cannot be 0. This means an object at rest will always be at rest and object moving with uniform motion in a straight line will continue to do so, which is the first law. Or FA = -FB, which is newton’s third law of motion.
