  1. yes
  2. no
Grade 5 Forces and Motion
Jasmyn can run 50 yards in 10 seconds and Jaylah can run 100 yards in 20 seconds. Who has a faster speed? (Speed equals distance divided by time.)
  1. Jasmyn has a faster speed.
  2. Jaylah has a faster speed.
  3. They both have the same speed.
Grade 5 Forces and Motion
No change in force is necessary to
  1. start an object moving.
  2. stop an object from moving.
  3. cause a change in the motion of an object.
  4. keep an object doing what it is already doing.
Grade 5 Energy and Momentum
Stored energy is                   potential energy                   .
Grade 5 Energy and Momentum
Energy is
  1. when the surfaces of two objects rub against each other.
