Forces and Friction 


1. Gravity or Weight- Always acting downwards 

2. Reaction force- From a surface, usually acting upwards

3. Electrostatic Force- Between two charged objects. The directiondepends on the type of charge (e.g. Opposite cahrges attract, same charges repel) 

4. Thrust ir Push or Pull- Due to an engine or rocket speeding something up

5. Drag or Air resistance or Friction- Slowing something down

6. Lift- Due to an aeroplane wing

7. Tension- In
