ICSE Class 8 Revision Notes for Physics Chapter 3: Force and Pressure

 

Force:-

A push or a pull on an object is called force. Force has both magnitude and direction. The SI unit of force is newton. The motion imparted to objects is due to the action of a force.

Forces are due to an Interaction:-

At least two objects must interact for a force to come into play. Thus, an interaction of one object with another object results in a force between the two objects. More than one force may act on an object.

Exploring Forces:-

A force can change the state of motion of an object, i.e. a force can make a stationary body move; it can stop a moving body; it can change the speed of the moving body. If two bodies exert force in the same direction and to the same object then the net force acting on the object is the sum of both the forces exerted by the bodies. If two bodies exert force on an object from opposite directions then the net force acting on the body will be the difference of the two forces and towards the direction of the larger force.

Pressure:-
Pressure is defined as the perpendicular force acting per unit area. It can be represented as, pressure = force/area on which it acts.

Pressure exerted by liquids and gases:-
Anything occupying space and has mass exert pressure. Therefore, it is true that liquids and gases exert pressure. Liquids and gases exert pressure on the walls of the container. The pressure exerted by water at the bottom of the container depends on the height of its column. Liquids exert equal pressure at the same depth.
