## Force & Weight Answers

## 1. What are the units that force is measured in?

## Newtons

##

## 2. True or false? The forces acting on a pen, that is still on a table, are balanced

## True

##

## 3. Weight is the measure of the force of gravity acting on an object

##

## 4. In physics, what are the units that are used for measuring weight?

## Newtons

##

## 5. True or false? If you are on the moon, you will have a lower weight

## True, while your mass will stay the same, your weight will actually lower on the moon since gravity is weaker on the moon than on the earth

## 6. Finish this equation for calculating force:

## Force = Acceleration x mass

##

## 7. Finish this equation for calculating weight:

## Weight = mass x gravity
