This video explores the concept of unbalanced forces in-depth. Forces that cause a change in the motion of an object are unbalanced. The vibrant and fun video takes place in a classroom setting to make it more interactive and relatable. Do you like to play soccer? The video demonstrates the concept with the help of a soccer ball. At first, it is not moving. If you kick the ball, you exert a force on it. The ball will start moving in the same direction as you kick. If you’re not interested in soccer, take the example of an arrow. The arrow will move in the direction of the force applied as well.
Keep exploring the forces around you. May the force be with you!
This video satisfies the 3-PS2-1 requirement for third-grade science proficiency.
Students who demonstrate understanding can:
3-PS2-1. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
