Ans. Yes, the given situation is true as we known that F = m × a
Now, when force F = 0,
Then, m × a = 0
Since ‘m’ cannot be zero, therefore, when force F = 0 then acceleration ‘a’ = 0
In such a situation, either the object is in uniform motion in a straight line or it is at rest (not moving). In the first case, there is a displacement of the object without any force acting on it.
