Indeed we can’t always see forces, but we can see the effects of forces everyday and how they impact on the world around us.

The famous Newton’s first law of motion tells us that:  “An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.”

But before we understand what this means, we need to understand what an ‘unbalanced force’ is.

With IntoScience, students explore familiar forces through activities which demonstrate what balanced and unbalanced forces are whilst looking at the effects of applying forces to objects.
