Weight and Mass & Forces in Equilibrium

I would weigh less on the moon? Send me there, then! On the top of the first page, a cartoon image demonstrates the difference between Earth and the moon. It then goes on to describe weight and mass and provides five practice problems for force and mass. The second page introduces learners to forces in equilibrium. Five word problems follow. This is a fun and practical assignment to give your beginning physical scientists for reinforcement. The title of the page makes reference to a specific unit; simply white this out before photocopying if this is unfavorable to you.
