What Is a Force? Chapter 1 Section 2 Review

A. A moving object B. A point of reference C. The SI unit for force
1. What is a newton? A. A moving object B. A point of reference C. The SI unit for force D. A push or pull

A newton is… C. The SI unit for force

2. Force is… A. A great deal of weight
B. A push or pull exerted on an object in order to change the object’s motion C. A change in position relative to a reference point D. The speed of an object in a certain direction

A force is… B. A push or pull exerted on an object in order to change the object’s motion

3. What is net force? A. A blocker in volleyball B. A push or pull
C. The speed of an object in a certain direction D. The combination of all forces acting on an object

Net force is… D. The combination of all forces acting on an object

4. Are the forces on a kicked football balanced or unbalanced? Why?
A. Balanced, since the football is moving B. Unbalanced, since the football is moving C. Balanced, since the football is still D. Unbalanced, since the football is still

The forces on a kicked football are…
B. Unbalanced, since the football is moving

5. Which of the following choices best represents force?
A. A push or pull which never causes motion B. A push or pull always causing acceleration C. A push or pull acting without an object D. A push or pull acting on an object

Force is represented by…
D. A push or pull acting on an object

A. 14 N East B. 2 N West C. 2 N East D. 14 N West
6. A boy pulls a wagon with a force of 8 N West as another boy pushes it with a force of 6 N West. What is the net force? A. 14 N East B. 2 N West C. 2 N East D. 14 N West

8 N West + 6 N West = D. 14 N West

A. A combination of all motions of an object
7. Which of the following best determines net force when more than one force is acting on an object? A. A combination of all motions of an object B. A combination of all motions of an object in 2 directions C. A combination of all forces acting on an object D. A combination of forces acting on an object in 2 directions

Net force is best determined when…
C. A combination of all forces is acting on an object
