In this review worksheet of forces, students will identify what happens when more than one force is acting on an object. Students will calculate the net force and determine the direction and magnitude of the net force. This will also review balanced and unbalanced forces.
Good practice in reviewing basics in forces. Great for middle school or introductory high school courses. I have included a key.
Main topics: forces, net force, balanced forces, unbalanced forces
If you like this activity, you can follow these links to other lessons and activities in my motion and forces units.
This is excellent because the students have to apply what they have learned about forces. Students often confuse the effect of gravity vs. the effect of friction. This allows the students practice with thinking about what force is acting on an object. Of course this also allows them practice with the concept of balanced and unbalanced forces.
