This week we have started a new topic in science. We have been looking at forces.
In our first lesson we looked at the force of gravity and learnt that the weight of an object is how hard gravity if pulling down on an object (measured in Newtons) and the mass of an object is how much matter is inside it (measured in g or kg).
Larger objects (like the Earth) have a greater pull of gravity.
Through an experiment, we found out that the mass of an object is 100x greater than its weight. So 1N = 100g.
In these photos we are using forcemeters to measure the weight and mass of objects around our classroom.
