# UNIT 1: LINEAR MOTION

Every time you catch a ball, ride a bike, or lift a bag, you are using physics to make predictions without realizing it.  For example, you predict where obstacles will be at later ti mes.  You estimate how much force it will take to move an object.  You prevent objects from rolling away or tipping over.  Mechanics is the branch of physics that deals with the effects of forces and energy in a given situation.  In this unit, you will learn many interesting facts about forces, motion, and energy.
