How does an understanding of each
of these forces help to
improve our lives?
1.1 The knowledge of gravity helps us to live ur
life because inventors can make entertaining
things like a trampoline, knowing that we will
come back to earth. Because of gravity, we
also do not have the complications of floating
around space, like we would if there was no
gravity (such as on other planets).
2 Air Resistance
2.1 Knowledge of air resistance has lead to many
new inventions that help or entertain us in our
2.1.1 The invention of
Aeroplanes relies on air
resistance. This was a
significant invention, as it
changed the way we travel.
2.1.2 Many of our high adrenaline
outdoor activities such as sky diving, hot air
balloon rides, paragliding and parasailing were
invented on the knowledge of air resistance to
3.1 The concept of friction has allowed the
development of new safety features.
3.1.1 Car tyres have special grips which
causes friction between the surface of
the road and the car tyre. This is a
safety feature because it prevents the
car from slipping in rainy or snowy
conditions. It can also help the driver
4 Magnetic Force
4.1 Magnetic Forces have been used to
create a compass, which helps us to
navigate our way.
4.2 Magnetic forces are used in the
creation of batteries. Batteries
are significant inventory that
help us to generate electricity
for many purposes.
4.3 Magnetic forces are used for medical imaging. This
allows us to take Xrays or ultrasounds of the body, which
is a huge progression as it has allowed us to see inside
the body for medical purposes.
5 Newton's Law of Inertia
5.1 Discoveries using Newton's law of inertia has improved our
safety such as with the invention of seat belts. Without
seat belts, there would be many more deaths on the roads.
Seat belts prevent us from jolting, based on the knowledge
that objects at rest will stay at rest.
6 Newton's Law of Acceleration
6.1 The Law of Acceleration has improve the way perform in sports
6.1.1 For example newtons law of Acceleration has
taught us that having a lighter cox and boat is
beneficial because the boat moves faster.
6.1.2 Race car manufacturers have
also applied this theory in race
car to enable the car to go
7 Newton's law of action and Recation
7.1 Car manufactures have used their
knowledge of this theory to produce
cars with crumple zones. Crumple
zones absorb the force of another
car in a crash to reduce the reaction
motion. This is a signicant safty
solution that has saved many lives
8.1 Through experiences as babies, we
gradually become aware of forces and
discover how to apply and modify
them. For example we are not born
knowing how to pick up a water
bottle but eventually, through
experience we learn about forces and
how to correctly use them in our life.
