  • Shear force is unaligned forces pushing against each other causing it to cut or tear
  • Hi i'm Sam and today I am going to teach you about forces
  • Our first force is compression. Compression is when something Reduces an objects volume causing it to have more potential energy.
  • Similar to a spring
  • Tension is like a rubber band it stretches then it has double the force
  • Tension is when an object is strained or stretched in order to make more force.
  • Now we're going to talk about Tension
  • Kind of like scissors cutting paper or even shearing a sheep
  • Now we're going to talk about shear
  • Like if you were to twist a piece of chalk in your hands until it splits
  • Our next force is torsion
  • Torsion is where forces are applied in opposite directions and twist against each other
  • Like if you bend a piece of sheet metal until it takes form or snaps
  • Bending is when you apply force onto one point of an object and the object shift form into a different shape.
  • Our last but not least force is bending
