  • 8th Grade Science (Herndon/Winkworth/Beasley/Joyner): The central focus of this learning segment is to develop the understanding of how unbalanced forces affect objects. Students will learn how to identify unbalanced forces and what the net force of a system is. An unbalanced force occurs when one force acting on an object is greater than another force acting on the object. Net force involves either adding two value of two forces acting in the direction on an object or subtracting two opposing forces acting on an object to determine the overall force affecting change.
