  • Force and Movement
    • Forces
      • Can't be seen
      • Only effects can be seen
      • Measured in Newtons - N
      • Usually act in pairs
      • Always act in a certain direction
      • Newton meter is used to measure them
    • 5 Effects of Forces
      • Speed up
        • Like Kicking a ball
      • Slow down
        • Like drag or air resistance
      • Change direction
        • Like hitting a ball with a bat
      • Turn
        • Like turning a spanner
      • Change shape
        • Like stretching
        • Like Twisting
        • Like compressing
        • Like bending
    • Balanced forces produce No Change in Movement
    • Unbalanced forces Change the Speed and/or Direction of Moving Objects
