drag
air resistance and water resistance are sometimes called drag
1 of 15
upthrust
pushes things up
2 of 15
friction
It happens when two hinge rub together
3 of 15
air resistance
The friction caused when something moves through air is called air resistance
4 of 15
gravity
pulls everything towards the centre of earth
5 of 15
contact force
You need to touch the object before you can give it force
6 of 15
static electricity
static electricity can attract charged things
7 of 15
water resistance
The friction caused when something moves through water
8 of 15
Magnetism
magnets have magnetism which attracts objects made of iron
9 of 15
shape
forces can change the shape of something
10 of 15
direction
The direction that the force is moving
11 of 15
speed
The speed that the force is moving
12 of 15
non contact forces
Some forces can affect an object from a distance
13 of 15
force meter/Newton meter
We measure the force with the force meter /Newton meter
14 of 15
