• P.S. 10: Force and Motion • Make measurements to calculate the speed of a moving object.
• Apply the concepts of speed, velocity, and acceleration when describing motion.
• Explain how force, mass, and acceleration are related.
• Differentiate between mass and weight.
• Identify situations that illustrate each Law of Motion.
• Apply the concept of mechanical advantage to test and explain how a machine makes work easier.
• Make measurements to calculate the power of an object.
• Explain how the concepts of work, force, and motion apply to car safety technology, machines, and rockets.
• Solve basic problems given the following formulas:
• Work = force x distance (W=Fxd)
• Power = work / time (P = W / t)
• Speed = distance / time (s = d / t)
• Force = mass x acceleration (F = ma)
