(Select T-True, F-False. If the first is T and the rest F, enter
TFFFF).

A) If a single force acts on an object, the object accelerates.
B) If an object isn't moving, no external forces act on it.
C) If an object is accelerating, a force is acting on it.
D) An object's velocity will only be in the direction of the net force exerted on it.
E) It is impossible to have motion in the absence of a force.
