  • a push or pull that makes something move
  • the way an object is moving
What is gravity?
  • the measurement of how fast an object moves
  • a push or pull that makes something move
  • a force that makes objects slow down or stop moving completely
  • the force that pulls objects down toward the center of the Earth
What is the definition of friction?
  • a push or pull that makes something move

  • the way an object is moving
Members of a wilderness club are setting up their tents at a campground. The group needs to move rocks out of the way. They will have to use __________.
  • gravity
  • friction
  • force
  • speed
Gillian is pulling a cart filled with her favorite toys as she walks to the beach. What will happen when the path turns from wooden boardwalk to sand?
  • It will be less difficult to pull the cart, because the sand will cause less friction.
  • It will be just as easy to pull the cart on the sand, because the amount of friction will stay the same.
  • It will be less difficult to pull the cart, because the sand will cause more friction.
  • It will be more difficult to move the cart, because the sand will cause more friction.
