Force is a push or pull on an object, causing it to speed up, slow down, or change direction. Motion is the result of a force acting on an object. It can be observed by looking at an object's speed, direction, and shape. Gravity is an example of a force that affects motion on Earth.
Force and Motion

Force: A push or pull on an object that changes or tends to change the object's motion. Motion: The action or process of moving or being moved. Newton's Laws of Motion: Laws that explain the relationship between force and motion; the first law states that an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Which force affects the motion of an object the most?
  • Gravity
  • Friction
  • Air Resistance
  • Electricity
  • Magnetism

The force of air resistance affects objects that are moving fast through the air more than objects that are moving slowly. When two objects exert forces on each other, the forces are always equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. The force of friction is greater on rougher surfaces than it is on smoother surfaces.
