Interactive Notes - Interaction of Force and Mass Click here2. Make sure you have this written (below) on your focus sheet for Explore page 2 "What Kinds of Forces Can Act on an Object?"
- System- a group of related objects that work together to form a function
- Orbit- the circular path of an object as it revolves around another object
- Theory- a set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena
- Nebular theory- About 4.6 billion years ago, an unknown event caused the gas and dust to start to collapse under its own gravity and the giant gas cloud began to contract.
- Accretion – “growth” the coming together and cohesion of matter under the influence of gravitation to form larger bodies.
- Contact forces on an object are forces that occur with an object being in contact with another. These include pushing something or pulling. Examples include frictional force, tension force, normal force, air resistance force, applied force, and spring force.

Work on the Focus sheet for Newton's Laws 4.2 Click here (Please notice that Explore page 3 needs to be fixed on your printed paper)Friday February 11. Incentive day (Wednesday schedule)2. We are going to go over every question in the practice test. Make sure you ask questions if you don't understand why you missed it. You can earn your points back if you do corrections. This is optional, but it will make a difference in your grades. I am uploading your progress report grades on Wednesday, so I have to have this turned in by Tuesday if you want to raise your currect grade.Go over every question you missed. I want you to be able to tell me how to solve it correctly, not what you did wrong. If you tell me what you did wrong you also have to explain how to do it right in order to get your points back.Write the question, the correct answer (not just the letter) and the explanation.Example: 1. The force that pulls falling objects toward Earth is called __________ a. gravityGravity is the force that pulls objects towards Earth, magnetism pulls positive and negative forces towards each other due to an electric chargeGravity- the force that attracts a body toward the center of the earth, or toward any other physical body having mass.Magnetism - a physical phenomenon produced by the motion of electric charge, resulting in attractive and repulsive forces between objects.____________________________________________________________________________________________Monday February 41.
