STANDARDS
S8P3. Students will investigate relationship between force, mass, and the motion of objects.
b. Demonstrate the effect of balanced and unbalanced forces on an object in terms of
gravity, inertia, and friction.
S8P5.aRecognize that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that the force exerted depends on how much mass the objects have and how far apart they are.
SPS8. Students will determine relationships among force, mass, and motion.
