What is motion
what is push
what is pull
Force is a push or pull that can make objects move or stop. Motion is when an object changes its position over time. Force and motion are related: force can cause motion and motion can be explained by force.
Force and Motion Introduction
Force is a push or pull that can cause an object to move, speed up, slow down, or stop. Motion is a change in position of an object over time. Newton's Laws of Motion are three physical laws that describe the relationship between a body and the forces acting upon it.
It takes the same amount of force to move an object that is twice as heavy as it does to move an object that is half as heavy. The force of inertia causes objects to stay still or keep moving in a straight line until they are pushed or pulled by a force. The speed of an object can be increased or decreased when a force is applied to it.
