In this module, students will learn about the forces of drag and lift
through a simple activity investigating how these two forces work on
objects at different angles. They will also practise showing forces in
one dimension using arrows.
This is one of three modules investigating forces at work. We recommend completing this module, along with Friction and grip, followed by Bounce, to look at forces in more depth.
