FORCE Objective: Students will demonstrate and illustrate forces that affect motion in everyday life

FORCES A force is a push or pull Forces give energy to objects Forces cause a change in motion (start moving, speed up, change direction, slow down, or stop)

FORCE FORCE – is measured in units called NEWTONS (N) Examples- a force will have the letter N behind it. 12N and 135N represent forces. FORCE is measured using a spring scale. A spring scale measures the amount of force needed to move an object. 5

To describe a force, you must know two things: Size of the force and Direction of the force

VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FORCE!!! To describe a force, you must know two things: Size or strength of the force and the Direction of the force 25N Direction of Force Size or Strength of force

BALANCED FORCES Forces that are equal in size but opposite in direction are under balanced forces Balanced forces do not cause a change in the motion of objects

UNBALANCED FORCES Unbalanced Forces can cause an object to change directions or to start moving

UNBALANCED FORCES Unbalanced forces can change the motion of an object in two ways:  When unbalanced forces act on an object at rest, the object will move  When unbalanced forces act on a moving object, the object will change direction

PRACTICE PROBLEMS PLEASE COPY THE PROBLEM!!!! CALCULATING NET FORCE

PROBLEM A Net Force Unbalanced 225 N

PROBLEM B Net Force Unbalanced 75 N

PROBLEM C Net Force Balanced 50 N 0 N 50 N 100 N

PROBLEM D Net Force Unbalanced 792 N 224 N 632 N 400 N 100 N900 N + + +

PROBLEM E Net Force Unbalanced 550 N 13 N 750 N 1563 N 250 N + +

PROBLEM F Net Force Unbalanced 987,256 N 6011 N 993,267 N
