A motorcycle is swerving to the right to avoid a pothole.

Which statement describes the motorcycle's motion?

The motorcycle has a constant velocity.

The motorcycle is accelerating.

Isaac Newton was born in the 1600s and studied how objects move. He discovered three fundamental laws about forces and motion. According to Newton's third law, for every force, there is an equal and opposite force.

Consider the following force:

A fridge magnet is pulling on a paper clip.

According to Newton's third law, what other force must be happening?

The paper clip is pushing on the fridge magnet.

The paper clip is pulling on the fridge magnet.

An ice cube is floating in a glass of water. Earth's gravity is pulling down on the ice cube with a force of 0.1N. The water is pushing up on the ice cube with a force of 0.1N.

Assume all other forces on the ice cube are balanced. Which statement describes the forces on the ice cube?

The forces are balanced, so there is no net force on the ice cube.

The forces are unbalanced, so there is a net force on the ice cube.

The images below show two pairs of magnets. The magnets in different pairs do not affect each other. All the magnets shown are made of the same material, but some of them are different shapes. Think about the magnetic force between the magnets in each pair. Which of the following statements is true?

The magnitude of magnetic force is smaller in pair 1.

The magnitude of magnetic force is smaller in pair 2.

The magnitude of magnetic force is the same in both pairs.
