Standard III - Forces

Standard: Students will understand the relationship between the force applied to an object and resulting motion of the object.

Objective 1: Demonstrate how forces cause changes in speed or direction of objects.
Objective 2: Demonstrate that the greater the force applied to an object, the greater the change in speed or direction of the object.


Science Benchmark
Forces cause changes in the speed or direction of the motion of an object. The greater the force placed on an object, the greater the change in motion. The more massive an object is, the less effect a given force will have upon the motion of the object. Earth's gravity pulls objects toward it without touching them.
