Educator Resources for Forces

The force is with us, always. Actually, it's more like many forces are acting on us all at the same time. From friction to magnetism, gravity to drag—forces always cause a push or a pull in a certain direction, at a specific magnitude. Adding up these vectors of force tells us if an object will move faster or slower, shift left or turn around, come to a complete stop or fly off into space! Feeling forced out of your comfort zone? Not to worry: Tim and Moby will explain exactly how forces sometimes settle into a balance and how unbalanced forces can set things in motion. So definitely check out this movie! It’s a real, uh, tour de force.
