Unit 3 Balanced Force Particle Model (BFPM)
3.1 I can construct a system schema to determine all of the interactions a particle is experiencing.
3.2 I can identify and include all the necessary information when representing forces.
3.3 Weight and Mass – Can distinguish between the gravitational force on an object, and the mass of the object.
3.4 If the forces on an object are balanced, I can use force diagrams to determine unknown forces acting on the object
3.5 I can describe forces in terms of interactions between two objects, and can utilize force pears to determine values of unknown forces acting on an object.
3.6 I can represent the forces on an object with dot and arrow (Free Body) diagrams.
3.7 I can identify conditions which indicate the forces on a particle are balanced.
3.8 I can determine situations in which the BFPM clearly applies, and situations in which it clearly does not apply.
