This EDITABLE 4 page worksheet asks students to identify forces acting on objects in free body diagrams (Friction, Applied, Gravity, Normal, Tension & Spring) and calculate net force in one dimension. It can be used as in-class practice worksheet, homework, or as an exam review.
The "calculating net forces" pages are one-dimensional (algebra-based), but because it editable, you can easily change the forces and directions of the arrows.
I have uploaded this in both a PDF and a .docx format, so you can feel free to modify and differentiate to fit your classroom and students' needs. Enjoy!
NGSS HS-PS2-1. Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration.
