#### Definitions

newton's first law object will remain at rest or in a uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an unbalanced force
newton's second law the acceleration of an object depends upon its mass and the magnitude of the force applied to it. F=ma
newton's third law for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
Force push or pull that acts on an object
newton the force that causes a 1 kilgram to accelerate at a rate of 1 meter per second
net force the overall force acting on an object after all the forces are combined
friction a force that opposes the motion of objects that touch as they move past each other
static friction the friction that acts on nonmoving objects.
sliding friction force that opposes sliding of an object.
rolling friction about 100-1000 times less than the force of static or sliding friction
fluid friction force of the fluid (water, air) against the object's movement
air resistance fluid friction acting on an object moving through the air
gravity a force that acts between two masses
terminal velocity the constant velocity of a falling object when the force of air resistance equals the force of gravity
projectile motion the motion of a falling object after it is given an initial forward velocity
