Identifying push or pull in Force – Class 8 Science Experiment

Chapter Name: Force

Activity Name: Identifying push or pull in Force

Activity Description:

In this activity, we will classify various actions into categories of push, pull, or both push and pull.

Required Items:

  1. Table-1 with examples involving various actions.

Step by Step Procedure:

  1. Review the examples given in Table-1, which involve actions like digging, sucking, erasing, falling, attracting, raising, etc.
  2. For each action in the table, determine whether it represents a push, pull, or both push and pull.
  3. Write “push” or “pull” or “both” in the blank boxes next to each action based on your classification.

Experiment Observations:

Action | Push/Pull/Both

  • Digging | Push
  • Sucking | Pull
  • Erasing | Push
  • Falling | Pull
  • Attracting | Both
  • Raising | Pull

Note down your observation in table format.

  1. Ensure that the examples given in the table are clear and well-understood before attempting to classify them.
  2. Use logical reasoning to determine whether an action involves a push, pull, or both, based on the characteristics of the action.

Lesson Learnt from Experiment:

This experiment helps us understand the concepts of push and pull forces and how they relate to different actions. It also highlights that some actions can involve both push and pull forces simultaneously, depending on the context.
