No. of periods required : 12;                               Unit: Force

Competencies to be achieved after teaching the lesson:

Conceptual understanding :

  • The pupil differentiates the work done by push and pull.
  • The pupil divides the forces into contact and non contact forces.
  • The pupil explains about frictional force.
  • The pupil give examples to tension force.
  • The pupil explaining about the magnetic and electric forces and fields.
  • The pupil understands the production of static electricity by friction.
  • The pupil understands different cases of resultant force.
  • The pupil derive the units and formulae for force.
  • The pupil explains resultant force based on FBD { Free Body  Diagram}.
  • The pupil understands the pressure and its variation w.r.t surface area.

Asking questions and making hypothesis :

  • The pupil observes the changes in the muscles during work.
  • The pupil asks the relation between force and friction.
  • The pupil imagines the situation during the absence of friction.
  • The pupil imagines the relation between gravitational force and tension in case of hanging bodies.
  • The pupil asks the information about the static electricity.
  • The pupil asks questions related to like poles and unlike poles.

Experiments and Field investigation:

  • The pupil finds the limiting force that can be bared by string by doing experiment.
  • The pupil proves the statement “like poles repel, unlike poles attract”.
  • The pupil explains the effect of resultant forces by doing experiment.
  • The pupil proves the electro static force of attraction using inflated balloon and paper pieces.
  • The pupil proves the change in effect of force with area of contact.

Collecting information and project work:

  • The pupil collects information about the different works done by push or pull or both.
  • The pupil do the project about the advantages and disadvantages of friction.
  • The pupil collects pictures related to contact forces and force at a distance.
  • The pupil collects different paper cutting and draws FBD {Free Body Diagram}.
  • The pupil collects the information about pressure in fluids.

Drawing and Model making :

  • The pupil draws the FBD for the bodies resting on the surfaces.
  • The pupil draws the FBD for the hanging bodies.
  • The pupil draws the FBD for large number of force acting on bodies in different cases.

Appreciation and Aesthetic values:

  • The pupil appreciates the advantages of friction to humans.
  • The pupil appreciates the result produced due to gravitational force.
  • The pupil appreciates the contribution of great scientists like Newton for their work in the field of force.

Teaching notes:

  • Every object in the universe attracts every other object in the universe, according to universal law of gravitation.
  • These attracted objects do not move, because of small masses.
  • Vertically thrown objects losses velocity as it moves and finally falls down due to gravitational force.
  • Like charges repel each other and unlike charges attract each other.
  • A charged body attracts an oppositely charged body and a neutral body due to induction.
  • S.I unit of force is Newton and C.G.S. unit of force is dyne.
  • They are related as 1 Newton =”10 to the power of 5″ dyne.
  • Representation of all forces acting on a body at a time in a diagram is called Free Body Diagram
  • Like poles repel each other and unlike poles attract each other.
  • Magnetic and electric forces are both attractive and repulsive, but gravitational forces are always attractive.
