Forces and Motion Virtual Lab…Concepts:Forces, balanced forces, unbalanced forces, net forceObjectives:Students will investigate the relationship between forces acting on an object and that object’smotionStudents will be able to predict the motion of an object.Name________________________ Date_____________ Period ____FORCES AND MOTIONBefore you begin this lab, save this document to your Google docs…You and some friends are at the park.You find some rope and decide you’d like to play a game of tug-of-war.Unfortunately, there are 5 people so you can’t have an equal amount of people on each side.One of your friends suggests that the two biggest people should be on one side, while the three smallerpeople should be on the other side.1.Do you think this is a fair way to split up teams?2.Why or why not?
3.What causes objects to move or stay still?
