It has no effect on weight.

Kilogram

### How does changing the size of a force affect a structure?

It affects the overall movement of the structure.

### What is affected by changing the location where a force is applied?

How the structure reacts to gravity

## Study Notes

### Force

• Force is a push or pull that tends to cause an object to change its movement or shape.
• There are three variables that affect force: magnitude, location, and direction.
• Magnitude: the size of the force, which affects the overall movement of the structure.
• Location: where the force is being applied, which affects how the structure reacts to the force.
• Direction: the direction in which the force is being applied, which can work with or against gravity.

### Unit of Force

• The unit of force is the newton (N).

### Mass

• Mass is the amount of matter in an object, which remains constant regardless of location.
• Weight is affected by gravity and changes with location, but mass remains the same.
• The unit of mass is the kilogram (kg).

### Similarities and Differences between Mass and Force

• Mass is a measure of the amount of material in an object, while force is a push or pull that causes an object to change its movement or shape.
• Mass is measured in kilograms (kg), while force is measured in newtons (N).
• Weight is a force that is affected by gravity, whereas mass is a constant property of an object.

This quiz covers the definition of force as a push or pull that can change an object's movement or shape, as well as the three factors that force depends on: magnitude, location, and direction. Learn how changing these variables can impact the structure's overall behavior.
