Force and Motion

Grade 5-6, Physical, Force and Motion Unit
The book Force and Motion introduces important concepts about how force is related to whether objects move, stop, change direction, or change speed. It describes Newton's laws of motion, addressing such concepts as inertia, momentum, and velocity. Various forces are explored, including gravity, friction, and magnetism. Doing work requires energy, which can occur as either potential or kinetic, and can be converted or transferred.
