Force And Motion Quiz Questions: Trivia!

Force and motion pertain to one another. You cannot have motion without force. If you create an applied force, it makes objects move. For this quiz, you shall be responsible for understanding how force is measured, what the law of universal gravitation says, what Newton’s first, second, and third law describes, and what refers to an object’s velocity. This quiz will make you knowledgeable in the subject of force and motion. Go for it.
