Use data to predict how a change in force (greater/less) might affect the position, direction of motion, or speed of an object (e.g., ramps and balls).
The motion of an object is affected by force.
No resources have been tagged as aligned with this standard.
Describe and demonstrate how the position and motion of an object can be changed by applying force, such as pushing and pulling; and explain that the greater the force, the greater the change.
Explain that when a force is applied to an object, it reacts in one of three ways: the object either speeds up, slows down, or goes in a different direction.
Explain the how balanced and unbalanced forces are related to an object’s motion.
Describe the relationship between the strength of a force on an object and the resulting effect, such as the greater the force, the greater the change in motion.
Analyze data to determine if a design solution works as intended to change the speed or direction of an object with a push or a pull.
