law that states an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion until an UNBALANCED force acts upon it

Law that states an object acted on by an unbalanced force will accelerate in the direction of the force
Force = Mass x Acceleration
Newton's Third Law of Motion
law that states for every action there is an opposite but equal reaction
the law of conservation of energy
states that when one form of energy is converted to another, no energy is created or destroyed.
two or more atoms bonded together, examples H₂, CO₂; smallest part of a compound having the properties of that compound
A pure substance that cannot be broken down into other substances by chemical or physical means
a change that occurs when a substance changes composition by forming one or more new substances
a subatomic particle that has a negative charge and is found outside the nucleus in the electron cloud.
the movement of thermal energy from a substance at a higher temperature to one at a lower temperature;
when there are two or more unequal forces acting on an object. It can cause an object to start moving, stop moving, or change direction
