Question:

Can there be displacement of an object in the absence of any force acting on it? Think. Discuss this question with your friends and teacher.

Answer:

No, no object can displace in the absence of force. Some people give the example of rain drops that they move without applying force, but it should be understood that the force of attraction of the earth acts on it. Therefore, an object cannot be displaced without applying a force.
