 Chapter 10 Forces

Motion- act of moving

Force- push or pull that makes an object move.
	*The object will move in the direction of the force
	*More force is needed to move heavier objects.
	*Objects move faster when you apply more force

Gravity- a force that pulls things to the center of the Earth

Work- a force that makes objects move
	If the object does not move – there is no work!
	The more force that you use the more work you do!

Friction- a force that slows or stops an object.
	It causes heat!

Simple Machines- is a tool with few or no moving parts
