Forces Song by Peter Weatherall

Lyrics:
What made an apple fall on Newton's head?
"The force of gravity" Sir Issac said.
So they named the Newton after him.
An unit of force used in measuring.

Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Push and pull us all around.
Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Speed us up and slow us down.

Weight is the pull of gravity.
The opposite in water is called 'Buoyancy'.
Friction is a force that stops us slipping.
Try it and you'll see it's positively gripping.

Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Push and pull us all around.
Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Speed us up and slow us down.

With a metal string, or stretchy piece of rubber,
You can make them balance, then cancel out eachother.

Horseshoe magnets can attract,
Paper clips and iron tacks.
Air resistance slows us down,
When we parachute to the ground.

Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Push and pull us all around.
Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Speed us up or slow us down.

With a metal spring, or stretchy piece of rubber,
You can make them balance, then cancel out eachother.

Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Push and pull us all around.
Forces, of course. Forces, of course.
Speed us up or slow us down.
