Balanced

When two forces equal each other

Newton

a unit of force equal to the force that imparts an acceleration of 1 m/sec/sec to a mass of 1 kilogram

Sliding Friction

The friction force that resists the motion of an object moving across a surface

Weight

Force of gravity on an object

Friction

A force that resists motion

Force

a push or pull, or any action that involves the interaction of objects and has the ability to change motion

Net Force

The sum of all forces acting on an object

Pound

The English unit equivalent of 4.48 newtons

Newton's First Law

an object at rest will stay at rest, an object that is moving will stay moving unless disturbed by an unbalanced force

Momentum

The mass of an object times its velocity

Unbalanced Forces

Forces that result in a net force on an object and can cause changes in motion

Newton's Second Law

When an object is acted on by one or more outside forces, the total force is equal to the mass of the object times the resulting acceleration

Inertia

the tendency of a body to maintain is state of rest or uniform motion unless acted upon by an external force

Newton's Third Law

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
