Science - Forces


This term, we are learning all about forces.



What is gravity, mass and weight?


We have been using force meters to measure the pull of gravity on the mass of object - this force is called weight.


The push and pull of forces is measured in Newtons (N). Why do you think this was chosen for the unit of measure?


What is friction?


Friction is the force which we have been exploring today.

Through investigating, we found that friction acts between moving objects and slows down moving objects.

Using force meters, we explored the force needed to pull shoes over different surfaces and linked this to the level of friction between the moving objects.


We then explored the link between the mass of an object and the amount of friction created.

Finally, we looked at how lubrication can reduce the amount of friction between moving objects.
