-Define each of Newton’s three laws.
-Understand that a force is a push or a pull.
-Explain the difference between balanced and unbalanced forces.
-Calculate the net force acting on an object.
balanced forces - when the sum of the forces acting on an object are equal the object will remain at rest, or it will move at a constant velocity.
force - a push or pull.
net force - the sum of all of the forces acting on an object.
Newton’s 1st Law of Motion - an object at rest remains at rest unless an external unbalanced force acts on it; an object in motion remains in motion unless an external unbalanced force acts on it.
Newton’s 2nd Law of Motion - an object accelerates in the direction of the net force acting on it.
Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion - for every action, there is an equal yet opposite reaction.
unbalanced forces - when the sum of the forces acting on an object are not equal, the object will accelerate or decelerate.
The Physics in Motion teacher toolkit provides instructions and answer keys for study questions, practice problems, labs for all seven units of study. GPB offers the teacher toolkit at no cost to Georgia educators. It will be available in September 2018. To preorder your teacher toolkit, complete and submit this form to request the teacher toolkit. You only need to submit this form one time to get materials for all seven units of study.
