help with school?

Is there any acceleration when an object is in motion and there is an applied force? Explain how you know! What can you observe in the simulation that tells you if it has acceleration or not? Why does this tell you if there is acceleration or not?

When there is acceleration: How do you make an object accelerate and get faster? How do you make an object accelerate and get slower?

To increase the speed:

To decrease the speed:

please provide the answers with explanation. Thank you!

    These are extremely basic concepts that you will get familiar with when you read the lesson. On the other hand I hope you understand that a person cannot help you with the simulation if they don't know what the simulation is.

    Acceleration is a change in velocity. This means a not-horizontal line on the v-t graph and a curved line on the x-t (displacement) graph.

    Acceleration is a result of net force. When net force is 0, then there is no acceleration. When net force is not zero, then there is acceleration in the direction of the net force. The term "applied force" may mean a different thing from the net force, depending on your class.
