Acceleration and Momentum
Step 1. Questions
Forces make objects move and change direction and speed. A large force on an object with small mass results in a large acceleration. A small force on an object with large mass results in small acceleration.
For this research report, you will have a chance to research more information about force and how it effects direction and speed. Read the following questions, and then research the answers.
By using the following Internet sites you can research the answers to these questions and discover many new areas to explore. When your research is complete use the steps that follow to develop a report presenting the information that you found.
- What is Newton’s Second Law of Motion?
- How does the second law of motion relate force and mass?
- What is Newton’s Third Law of Motion?
- What is momentum?
- How do weight and mass compare?
