2 Velocity n. The speed and direction of an objects motion. The velocity of the train was 30 meters per second north.The velocity of the was 50 meters per second south.
3 Lesson 1 How can you describe motion? is all around you.Different kinds of motion happen at different rates.There are many different types of motion – , variable, periodic, , and circular.Motionvibrationalconstant
4 Speed and VelocitySpeed is how far an object moves during a certain amount of Distance/timeEx 100m/20s = 5m/sMotion is always measured in relationship to some location called a of reference.Speed and velocity are not theVelocity describes the and the direction of an object’s motion. Ex. North, south, up, or down.timepointsamespeed
5 Review1) What two things do you need to know to find an object’s velocity? 2) Robert moved 28 m in 4 sec. Tallana moved 600 m in 2 min. List these people and their speeds in order from fastest to slowest. 3) Motion is always measured in relationship to some location called a of reference. 4) What is the formula for speed?
6 Force . A push or pull that acts on an object. The force of the wind was very strong.Write you own sentence using this starter. The force ofIs gravity a force?
7 Work . Done when a force an object. movesDone when a force an object.Work is done only when the object moves at least partly in the same direction in which the force is applied.Work = force x distanceIs work done if I am pushing on the wall?Is work being done if I am pushing a chair across the room?If I am holding on to a ball is work being done?
8 Power . Rate at which work is done. Since running up the hill is faster than walking, the amount of power needed to run is greater.Power = work/timeIf I do work faster is there more power involved?
9 Lesson 2 What are Forces? A force is a push or that acts on an object. pullA force is a push or that acts on an object.Forces can make a moving object speed up, slow down, or changeForces have both magnitude and direction. Magnitude measured in Newtons (N)GravityEvery object in the universe exerts a gravitational pull on every other object. Only large objects such as are strong enough to be felt.directionsEarth’s
10 An object’s weight is the amount of gravitational force between it and Earth. This force depends on Earth’s size, mass, and how far above Earth the object is.Your would be less if you are flying or on another planet, because of lessweightgravity
11 Magnetism and Electricity pushesMagnetism – force that and pulls.A magnets force is greatest at a magnet’sEvery magnet has a south and north pole.North and south poles If you have a north and north pole they will repel.Objects get electrically charged when they gain or lose electrons.Electrons often move from one object to another when the objects are rubbed together.polesattract
12 Magnetism and electricity can be by certain objects. can’t be blocked. Gravity, magnetic, and electric forces as objects get closer together.Magnetism and electricity can be by certain objects.can’t be blocked.Electricity and magnetism can push or pull.Gravity only canincreaseblockedGravitypull
13 FrictionFriction is the that results when two materials rub against each other.Friction slows down objects or keeps them from to move.Speed, shape, or affect the amount of friction with other objects.Share an example of friction.Air and water resist motion when a moving objects tries to go through them.forcestartingtexture
14 Work and Power Work is done when a force an object. Work is measured in JoulesIf the force applied to an object does not move the object, then work has been done.Holding an object requires a force, but since the object does not move, no work is done.is the rate at which work is done. When work is done faster power is.movesnoPowerincreased
15 ReviewDefine force.As objects get closer together gravity, electricity, and magnetism do what?How does friction affect the movement of an object?When is work done?What is power?
16 InertiaThe tendency of an object to resist any change in motion. Unless a force acts on an object, the object will remain in constant motion.Objects with more mass have more inertia than objects with less mass.Ex. When a car turns directions your body tends to keep moving in the direction it was moving.Inertia - roller coaster.The seat belt prevents the test dummy’s inertia from carrying the dummy through the windshield. Think of some other examples.
17 Lesson 3 What are Newton’s laws of motion? Newton’s laws of explain why objects like a ball move the way they do.Different forces can act on an object at the time. They may act in differentAll the forces acting on an object equal the net force.The net force will determine whether the object starts moving, , or changes direction.Isaac Newton – Newton’s laws, law of gravitation, and used math in studying nature.directionsstops
18 Newton’s 1st Law remain resist inertia Says that unless a net force acts on an object the object will in constant motion. An object at rest stays at rest until a net force acts on it.The tendency of an object to any change in motion is inertia.Objects with a lot of mass have more than those that don’t have much mass.Example When you turn directions in a car or riding a roller coaster.remainresistinertia
19 Newton’s 2nd LawDescribes how acceleration, mass, and net force are related.Acceleration is the rate at which the of an object changes over time.Acceleration = force/massThe stronger the force acting on an object, the more that object willvelocityaccelerate
20 Newton’s 3rd LawWhen one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts a force on the first object.Action law of motion. Forces are always equal and and always occur in pairs.This happens all around us. It is to have one force without an equal and opposite force!Ex bumper carsreactionoppositeimpossible
21 Review What is Newton’s first law of motion? Describe Newton’s 2nd law of motion.Explain Newton’s 3rd law of motion.Which of Newton’s laws of motion is demonstrated by a hammer pounding a nail into a board?What are all the forces acting on an object called?
22 Machine .A device that changes the direction or the amount of force needed to do work.Ex. Wheel and axle, pulley, or lever.They used a machine to help make their work easier.Think of an example of when you would want to use a machine to do work.
23 Lesson 4 What are simple machines? Remember work is done when a force causes an object toA machine changes the direction or amount of force needed to do work.Simple machines are machines with parts.Ex. Wheel and axle, pulley, inclined plane, and lever.Machines don’t reduce the amount of work that needs to be done they just make itmovefeweasier
25 Pulley Consists of a rope or cable that runs through a grooved wheel. and drapery rods use pulleys.A block and tackle is a system of pulleys that make it easier to lift very heavy objects.Flagpoles
26 Wheel and AxleMade up of a circular object such as a doorknob, and a shaft.They the amount of force needed to do work.Steering wheel of a car and pulling a bucket out of a well with a crank are some examples.reduce
27 Lever Where a bar rotates around a fixed point called a . . Levers do work using the bar, fulcrum, a load, and a you apply.As the position of the fulcrum changes the amount of force needed to move the box will change.The farther the fulcrum is from the person using the lever, the the lever is to use.Ex. Wheel barrow, pliers, clothespins.fulcrumforceeasier
28 Inclined planes A is an example of an inclined plane. It consists of a flat surface with one end higher than the other.Can be big or small.Other inclined planes include screws (inclined plane is wrapped around it) and doorstops.ramp
29 Complex Machines A machine that uses or more simple machines. Many complex machines use , gravity, burning fuel, human force, or magnetism.Example Go carts, sailing ships.What would be some other examples of complex machines?twoelectricity
30 ReviewWhat are two examples of a wheel and axle that can make work easier?What are all of the parts of a lever?What is a complex machine?What simple machine are you using when you raise or lower a flag on a flagpole?
