Part I Physics
Forces and Motion – What makes objects move the way they do?
8.1 - An object’s inertia causes it to continue moving the way it is moving unless it is acted upon by a force to change its motion.
- The motion of an object can be described by its position, direction of motion and speed.
- An unbalanced force acting on an object changes its speed and/or direction of motion.
C 22. Calculate the average speed of a moving object and illustrate the motion of objects in graphs of distance over time.
