Force
A push or pull on an object that changes it's velocity, direction or shape.F=M●A
Gravity
A force that attracts any two objects to each other. G=L(2Π●F)2
Friction
The resistance produced when the surface of one object rubs against
the opposing surface of another object.
Velocity
Rate of speed and direction of an object.
Acceleration
Rate of change of velocity. A=F/M
Elasticity
ability of an object to return to its original form after the removal of
deforming forces. K= ∆F/∆L
Inertia
Tendency of all objects to stay at rest if they are at rest, and keep
moving if they are in motion.
Energy
The ability to do work.
Centripetal
Force directed in to the center of a circle. Keeps objects from
"flying away" from the circle.
Centrifugal
A force that pulls outward and away from the center of the circle.
Momentum
Product of an object's mass and velocity . Mo=M●V
Resistance
The weight on an object to be moved.
Potential Energy
Stored energy of an object due to its position. PE=M●G●H
Work
Product of force and distance applied to an object. W=F●D
Kinetic Energy
The energy of a moving object. KE=½M●V2
Mass
Amount of matter in an object.
Effort
The force exerted.
Equilibrium
All forces are in balance and all forces equals zero. ΣF=0
Torque
The turning effect of a force. WT=F●D
Weight
Measure of the pull of gravity on an object.
