With the completion of our conclusions, we are moving on to a new unit, FORCE. More than just what binds the Star Wars Universe together, a Force is a push or a pull that can cause an object to move. One of the first forces we will examine is friction. A classic experiment that we recreated in class is overlapping the pages of two books together then trying to pull them apart. The MythBusters did a large scale version of this experiment that Mr. Houde also attempted in class.
Gold Tape Question: The Winter Olympics are coming up and one of the more popular events is Curling. Write a paragraph explanation of what friction has to do with curling.
