[PS2] Motion and Stability: Forces and Interaction

SCI-00.PS2.01 Conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

Examples of pushes or pulls could include a string attached to an object being pulled, a person pushing an object, a person stopping a rolling ball, and two objects colliding and pushing on each other.

Disciplinary Core Ideas
PS2.A: Forces and Motion Pushes and pulls can have different strengths and directions. Pushing and pulling an object can change the speed or direction of its motion and can start or stop it
PS2.B: Types of Interactions When objects touch or collide, they push one another and can change motion.
PS3.C: Relationship between Energy and Forces A bigger push or pull makes things speed up or slow down more quickly.
