Non-Contact Forces These are pushes and pulls from a distance.
Gravity Gravity For objects on Earth, the pull of the Earth is the strongest force acting on them. Gravity is a force of attraction between any mass and the matter near it. The larger the mass of an object, the greater the gravitational force it exerts on other objects. For objects on Earth, the pull of the Earth is the strongest force acting on them.
Gravity “Jupiter is the most massive planet in our Solar System and; therefore, the gravity of Jupiter is the most intense in the Solar system. Its gravitational pull is 2.5 times what is here on Earth.”
Magnetism N NSS Here are “like” charges. Are they showing an attraction or are they repelling?
Magnetism NNSS They are repelling. Magnetic Repulsion
Magnetism NNSS Here are “unlike” charges. Are they showing an attraction or are they repelling?
Magnetism NNSS They are showing an attraction. Magnetic Attraction
Magnetism NNSS The attracting and repelling magnetic forces illustrate non-contact forces. They pull and push without contact. N NSS
Electrical Charges The attracting and repelling electrical forces illustrated in the wind sock demonstration show non-contact forces. They push without contact.
