Question 8

Name the forces acting on a plastic bucket containing water held above ground level in your hand. Discuss why the forces acting on the bucket do not bring a change in its state of motion.

Answer

Here, muscular force is acting on the plastic bucket containing water held above the ground level. Muscular force is applied in the opposite direction of gravity; here which pulls the bucket towards the ground. Here both muscular and gravity are equal in magnitude. So, both the forces cancel out each other. Here the net force on the bucket is zero. Hence there is no change in the state of the motion of the bucket.
