# Quest: 5th Grade, Force and Motion Science

Here are some science questions to help you test your knowledge of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.

The questions are chosen randomly, so this quest will be different each time you reload the page.

Back to the Grade 5 standards.

1. ### The cannon ball is smaller.

No. While smaller size means a little less air resistance, that is not enough to cause the difference.
2. ### The wheels on the cannon are stuck.

No. Even with the wheels moving freely, the cannon ball will still move much faster and much farther.
3. ### The cannon ball is round.

No. While the round shape means a little less air resistance, that is not enough to cause the difference.
4. ### The cannon ball weighs less.

Yes! According to Newton's Second Law of Motion, the more mass an object has, the less it will be affected by a force. Newton's Third Law of Motion tells us that the cannon and the cannon ball will both be pushed by the same amount of force, but since the cannon is much heavier (more mass), it will not move as fast or as far.

If the cannon was made of very light weight plastic, so that it was much ligher (less mass) than the cannon ball, then the cannon would move farther and faster.

### Florida

SC.5.P.13.3 Investigate and describe that the more mass an object has, the less effect a given force will have on the object's motion.

1. ### The cars have more powerful engines.

No. The trucks have more powerful engines than the cars do.
2. ### The cars have tires with more friction.

No. The truck tires are larger, which means they have more contact with the ground, and more friction.
3. ### The cars weigh less.

Yes! The heavier an object is (the more mass it has), the more force it takes to move it. The trucks weigh a lot more than the cars, so it takes much more energy to get them moving.
4. ### The cars are more streamlined

No. A streamlined shape helps when the cars are moving quickly, but does not do much as they are starting up.

### Florida

SC.5.P.13.3 Investigate and describe that the more mass an object has, the less effect a given force will have on the object's motion.
