Force is represented
by…
D.
A push or pull
acting on an object
6. A boy pulls a wagon with a force of 8 N

of 6 N West. What is the net force?
A.
14 N East
B. 2 N West
C. 2 N East
D. 14 N West
8 N West + 6 N West =
D.
14 N West
7. Which of the following best determines
net force when more than one force is
acting on an object?
A.
A combination of all motions of
an object
B. A combination of all motions of
an object in 2 directions
C. A combination of all forces
acting on an object
D. A combination of forces acting
on an object in 2 directions
Net force is best
determined when…
C.
A combination
of all forces is acting
on an object
8. Which of the following may happen
forces?
A.
The object changes
direction
B. The object changes speed
C. The object starts to move
D. All of the above
unbalanced forces, it
moves, so…
D.
All of the above
9. When the net forces equal
0 N, they are which of the following?
A.
Balanced
B. Unbalanced
C. A push
D. A pull
When net forces equal 0 N,
they are…
A.
Balanced
10. What is an example of an unbalanced
force causing a change in motion?
A.
Pulling on a drawer so it
opens
B. Pushing a chair across the
floor
C. Pedaling a bicycle
D. All of the above
D.
All of the above
11. Which of the following always
causes a change in speed,
direction, or both?
A.
