#### Question: List the four effects that force have on objects.

Answer: The four effects that force have on objects are:

1. A force can make a stationary object move or make a moving object move faster.
2. A force can make a moving object stop or slow down.
3. a force can change the direction in which an object is moving.
4. A force can change the shape of an object.

#### Question: What is friction? Why is friction necessary?

Answer: The force that tries to stop the sliding movement of objects across a surface is called friction. Friction is necessary because friction between or feet and ground makes it possible for us to walk.
