When objects touch or collide, they push one another and can change motion (K.2 b, c).
The net force is the combination of all the forces acting on an object (5.3 b).
A change in motion is related to net force and mass (5.3 c).
Whether an object stays still or moves often depends on the effects of multiple pushes or pulls. An object at rest typically has multiple forces acting on it, but they add to give zero net force on the object. Forces that do not sum to zero net force can cause changes in the object’s speed or direction of motion (5.3 b).
When objects collide, the energy from one object transfers to another object. That transfer in energy can change an object's speed and or direction (5.3 a, b, c, d, e).
