Is the measure of how hard it is to slow or stop a moving object.
Laws of motion
Three laws formulated by Sir Issac Newton that describe how objects move in relation to the forces acting on them.
When an object remains at rest or in motion unless acted by a force.
Forces that slowdown or stop movement.
Is a tool or machine that makes work easier.
Are forces that have a net force of zero or equal weight and making objects stay in place.
have a force that is stronger on one side than the other, causing movement of an object.
How a position changes over time.
A push or a pull.
The ability to do work.
A force of attraction between any two masses pulls objects down to the center of the earth.
A measurement of how heavy something is.
When an object moves, this is being done.
A tool that helps lift weights with less effort.
Is a form of wheel and axel and changes the directon of the force.
Wheel and Axel
Can lift heavy weights for us with only a little effort on our parts.
A change in motion caused by unbalanced forces or a change in speed.
An objects speed in a particular direction.
The amount of matter / weight in an object.
Makes it easier to slide a load upward then to lift it directly.
An incline planed wrapped around a cylinder. Its main purpose is to raise a load over the thread.
A measure of a pull of gravity of an object.
It can lift a heavy load over a short distance or can split a log.
The location of an object.
A measurement of distance over time.
The force that moves an object forward.
The opposite force on a object (tries to slow it down).
To imagine and create the best way to solve a problem.
Representation that shows the workings of an object or system.
