Example of only a single force occurence?

    Is this possible?

    I have been struggling with the following question, which is an assignment from my physics professor. Any help would be wonderful, thank you...

    Is it possible to have a naturally occuring situation where an object/element/particle is being acted upon by only a single force? i.e. the net Force on the object = the force of the single force.

    I think it has to be a electromagnetically neutral particle that is being acted upon only by one instance of the gravitational force.

    is this possible? What would be an example?

    Thank you, Llamaboy :smile:
