what is projectile motion and what causes it?
Projectile motion is anything that is being thrown by another object.
Newtons 1st law
(Law of Inertia) an object in motion tends to stay in motion & an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an outside force.
the tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion
Newtons 2nd Law
(Force) when force is applied to an object it is accelerated in the direction of the force. (mass and force are inversely proportional)
the state in which one object's distance from another is changing
How are mass and acceleration related
The acceleration of an object depends on an objects mass because the heavier the object is the harder it is for an object to accelerate.
How are force and acceleration related
Force is the product of mass and acceleration.
Newtons 3rd Law
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
the force or speed with which something moves
Momentum= mass(KG) x velocity(m/s)
What is the law of conservation of momentum
The law of conservation of momentum states that an object will keep its momentum unless acted on by an outside force.
the rate at which an object moves
Speed= distance/time or s=d/t
speed in a given direction
the force that opposes the motion of one surface as it moves across another surface
(physics) the force of attraction between all masses in the universe
(physics) the influence that produces a change in a physical quantity
Force (N)= mass(KG) x Acceleration (m/s/s)
(physics) a rate of change of velocity
