Workshop Programme Teachers' Notes
Movement and forces
Force is required to provide motion, alter direction,
change speed and even stop.
There are different types of force that can cause an
object to move. One force that is always present is
gravity. Gravity is constantly pulling things towards
the centre of the Earth.
Forces can be:
static or balanced (weight on top of an object)
