Light travels in a straight line. The formation of shadow is a phenomenon that shows light travels in a straight line when an opaque object blocks a ray of light.

When light travels in a straight line and strike the surface of an object, it will Reflected Year 6

Force A force can cause: Stationary objects to start moving A change in the shape of an object

Friction Effects

A change in the motion of an object Make the surface warm, makes a moving object slow down and stop Depends on the condition of surfaces and on the weight of an object Ex: Allow us to walk or run without slipping, vehicles to travel on the road safely and enables us to hold things. causes surfaces which are touching each other to wear out. Using rollers, ball bearings and using lubricants
