The world of Motion and Forces
A place or object used for comparison to determine if an object is in motion
an object's change in position relative to a reference point
the rate at which an object moves (distance divided by time)
a device that attracts iron and produces a magnetic field
the force that one surface exerts on another when the two rub against each other
attractive force between two objects that depends on the masses of the objects and the distance between them
a push or pull that acts on an object
the tendency of a body to maintain its state of rest or motion unless acted upon by an external force
the speed and direction of a moving object
the rate at which velocity changes.
Newton's 1st Law of Motion
An object at rest/motion will remain at rest/motion until acted upon by an outside force
Newton's 2nd Law of Motion
Force = Mass x Acceleration (F = ma)
Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
the location of a place or an object
