Act. 5.1: Fundamental Forces Gravitational force - an attractive force that exists between all objects. The gravitational force between the center of the Earth and objects near it causes objects to fall toward the surface of the Earth. Electromagnetic force – holds matter together by providing the force that binds atoms into molecules. The force between particles of opposite charge is attractive. The force between particles of the same charge is repulsive. 5-2 + + + - - -

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
