Balanced and Unbalanced Forces-Explanation and Real-Life Examples

In this video, I explain balanced and unbalanced forces from a physics viewpoint.
Balanced forces do not cause movement or a change in speed.
Unbalanced forces cause an object to move in the direction of the greater force.

Examples of balanced forces acting on an object

Pool balls that are balanced being struck by an unbalanced force.
Lifting weights The downward pull of gravity is balanced by the resistance force of the weight stand.
Using a car jack creates an unbalanced force upward.
