Chapter 6: Newton's 2nd Law

Pace: 10 class periods

BIG IDEAS: Forces and Acceleration
The change of speed and/or direction (acceleration) of an object is proportional to the net force and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.The acceleration and net force are always in the same direction. 
Standards Covered:
3.1A Identify the force(s) acting between objects in "direct contact" or at a distance 3.1d Identify the basic forces in everyday interactions 3.2C Calculate the net force acting on an object 3.4A Predict the change in motion of an object acted on by several forces 3.4C Solve Problems involving force, mass, and acceleration in linear motion. 
6 Pretest and DifferentiationIf you score a 90% or above on this pretest on your first attempt you will not need to complete any of the practice for this unit and an accelerated assignment will be provided. The pretest is not open internet or buddy or book. This pretest will be timed and may only be completed in class.

6.3 Newton's 2nd Law

Big Idea: Newton's 2nd law states that acceleration produced by a net force on an object is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, is in the same direction as the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass of an object.

6.LAB:
Apply what you know about Acceleration, Mass and Force to solve a problem you create. Record all steps in your lab notebook and work with your table partner in groups of no more than 2.
Find the Acceleration.
1. Find the initial speed of your object (s=d/t). Most might be 0 m/s.
2. Find the final speed of your object. (s=d/t)
3. Find the time it takes your object to travel a set distance.
4. Use the acceleration formula to find acceleration.
(a=final velocityinitial velocity/time)
Find the Mass.
1. Use a triple beam balance to find the mass of objects up to 1kg.
Find the Force.
1. Find the Force(F) in Newtons (N). (F=ma)
Change Something
1. Repeat your process a minimum of three times for each object.
2. Test at least 3 objects.
Reflect
1. Explain the relationship between Force, Mass and Acceleration with examples.
