Vehicles In Motion
Terms in this set (30)
A relationship between two variables in which one variable increases as the other decreases.
A relationship between two variables that increase or decrease together. (as one increases, the other increases)
A sign that gives useful information, and can be observed, measured, or calculated.
When a scientist imagines what might happen
The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion
A set of parts that produce a force to make an object move forward
when a force exerted on an object causes the object to move in the same direction as the force.
the capacity to move something from an at rest position. Energy has many different forms.
The energy that is stored in an object as a result of its position or condition
The energy associated with an object in motion
A quantity whose value may change (vary) over the course of an experiment
Independent Variable (Manipulated
in an experiment, a variable whose value is manipulated, or changed, by the experimenter, to observe its effects on another variable
Dependent Variable (Responding)
in an experiment, a variable whose value changes when the value of the independent variable is changed.
In an experiment, the variables that are kept the same each time the procedure is performed.
a prediction of what will happen between an independent variable and a dependent variable.
A general direction in which something tends to change; also, the way the dependent variable tends to change when the independent variable is changed
a force exerted by one object on a second object
A force that acts between two objects that are directly touching. The normal force is an example of a contact force.
A force that acts between objects that are not touching. Gravity is an example of a non-contact force.
a toll used by scientists to measure the size (magnitude) of a force by how much it stretches a spring
A unit of measurement for forces
having little or no apparent gravitational pull
the amount of matter in an object
the force of an object due to gravity
the force that draws objects together
Newton's First Law of Motion
an object at rest will remain at rest and an object in motion will remain in at a constant speed in the same direction unless an unbalanced force acts on it.
Newton's Second Law of Motion
the acceleration of an object depends on the magnitude of the net force acting on it and the mass of the object.
Newton's Third Law of Motion
for every force exerted on an object a force that is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction is also exerted by the object
