Nevada Science Standards
P.12.B Students understand the interactions between force and motion.
Next Generation Science Standards
HS-PS2-b Use mathematical expressions to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.
Pay special attention to definitions of acceleration, speed, and velocity.
Read Chapter 12.1 Forces
Outline the reading in your Science Notebook & include major points and diagrams/tables.
You should focus on the following essential questions:
-How do forces affect the motion of an object
-What are the four main types of friction
-How do gravity and air resistance affect a falling object
-In what direction does Earth's gravity act
-Why does a projectile follow a curved path
