Storyboard Text

  • WOAH! How did that apple fall?
  • So, all physical objects have a force or attraction between them. Also, the amount of power in a force depends on the mass of the objects and the space between them. Turns out the moon and Earth cancel out on each other at certain points. Which is why the moon is able to stay in motion and not drift off into outer space. 
  • Wait a minute...If the moon is always in motion, how does it not drift off into space?
  • Step 1: Stating a question
  • I know! Maybe the same force that pulled that apple down is the same one that tugs on the moon, and keeps it from drifting off.
  • Step  2: Hypothesis 
  • Let's see, my hypothesis explains the movements of humans and how that apple fell from a tree.
  • How do I know if I'm right?
  • Step 3: Testing the hypothesis
  • Step 4: Recording data
  • I was right! Because of this type of force that tugs objects towards each other, the moon is able to orbit around earth without flying off. 
  • Step 5: Analyze data
  • I, Issac Newton, am going to call this special force gravity!
  • HMMM...what should I name this force that I've discovered?
