1.What are forces measured in and what is used to measure them?
They are measured in Newtons (N) using a newton meter
1 of 11
2.What 5 things can forces make objects do?
Speed up, Slow down, Change direction, Turn, Change shape
2 of 11
3.What does air resistance do against objects moving in the air?
It pushes or drags it
3 of 11
4.Air resistance is what kind of force and why?
a frictional force because it slows objects down
4 of 11
5.What do things need to be to go fast and why?
Streamlined or aerodynamic because they can slip through the air without much resistance
5 of 11
6.Name a good thing about friction
Friction allows tyres to grip the road surface - without this grip you couldn't make a bike move forwards and you couldn't stop it either.

6.Name another good thing about friction
Friction acts as the brakes where they rub on the rim of the wheel
7 of 11
6.Name another good thing about friction
Friction allows you to grip a bike so you won't slip off
8 of 11
6.Name one last good thing about friction
It holds all the nuts and bolts of a bike together
9 of 11
7.Name a bad point about friction
It wastes energy - the transfer of energy from a rider's legs to the wheels isn't perfect - friction between moving parts warms up the gears and bearings - a waste of energy
10 of 11
7.Name one last bad thing about friction
It limits top speed. The air resistance or drag takes most of your energy and also limits maximum speed
