Conceptual Physics - Chapter 3 - Newton's First Law of Motion
Terms in this set (13)
Every object continues in its state of rest, or uniform speed in a straight line, unless acted on by a non-zero force
The acceleration produced by a net force on an object is directly proportionate to the net force is in the same direction as the net force and is inversely proportional to the mass of the object
When one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first
Rule of adding/subtracting vectors?
Add if in same parallel direction
Subtract if in opposite direction
Greater mass = ....... acceleration
Smaller mass = ...... acceleration
net force / mass
A = f/m
Mass * Gravity
Force that acts between materials that touch as they move past each other.
The SI unit to measure mass.
How much "stuff" there is in an object.
The force of gravity on an object.
The SI unit for force.
