Unit 4E: Friction

Friction

Unit 4E: Vocabulary- Unit 4E: Vocabulary Useful Words A force acting between two surfaces Friction caused by a body moving through air Friction caused by a body moving through water A piece of equipment for measuring force The units in which force is measured The face of a body Friction Air resistance Water resistance Forcemeter Newtons Surface area

Unit 4E: Forcemeters : L.O. 1,2 : NC. 4.2e Unit 4E: Forcemeters 3 Newtons 7 Newtons 5 Newtons 8.5 Newtons

Unit 4E: Forcemeters : L.O. 1,2 : NC. 4.2e Unit 4E: Using Forcemeters Try hanging different objects from around the classroom on the forcemeter. Write down the readings you get! Object Forcemeter reading in Newtons

Unit 4E: Forces against movement: L.O. 3 : NC. 4.2d Unit 4E: Forces against movement This picture shows the same box being pushed on different surfaces.

Unit 4E: Forces against movement: L.O. 3 : NC. 4.2d Unit 4E: Forces against movement

Unit 4E: Investigation : L.O. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 : NC. 1.1b; 1.2d, e, f, g, h, j Unit 4E: Investigation Investigation: Which surface do objects slide on most easily? Which of these surfaces will a weighted box slide across most easily? A) Vinyl B) Wood C) Carpet When you have chosen, explain why you think this surface will be the easiest to slide across

Unit 4E: Investigation : L.O. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 : NC. 1.1b; 1.2d, e, f, g, h, j Unit 4E: Investigation (cont.) Investigation: How are you going to test this? “What variable are you testing? (the thing that changes)” “What variable will you change?” “What variables will remain the same to make it a fair test?” “What will you measure?” Record the results as a bar chart, ask for help if you’re unsure.

Unit 4E: Forces against movement: L.O. 3 : NC. 4.2d Unit 4E: What is this force?

Unit 4E: High and Low Friction: L.O. 3 : NC. 4.2d Unit 4E: High and Low Friction Is it best for each of the following to have high or low friction? Situation High Friction Low friction Tyres on a car Playground slide Goalkeeper’s gloves Shoe laces A drawer Ice skates Climbing rope

Unit 4E: Water Resistance: L.O. 11, 12 : NC. 4.2 c, d Unit 4E: Water Resistance Which shape do you think will travel through the water the quickest? Why do you think this one will be the quickest? Test different shapes to see how quickly they move through the liquid.

Unit 4E: Water Resistance: L.O. 13 : NC. 4.2 c, d Unit 4E: Water Resistance water movement

Unit 4E: Air Resistance: L.O. 13 : NC. 4.2 c, d Unit 4E: Air Resistance movementair resistance
