CPO Physical Science Chapter 6 - Newton's Laws of Motion
Terms in this set (15)
A push or a pull.
The distance an object travels in a certain period of time. (Speed=Distance/Time.)
The change in velocity over time.
An objects resistance to change in its motion. (If an object is at rest it will stay at rest if the object is in motion it will remain in motion at constant velocity until an unbalanced force causes a change in its motion.)
The amount of matter in an object.
The force of attraction that exists between all masses in the universe.
A gravitational force exerted on an object's mass, that changes with position.
A property of any moving object. The momentum (p) of an object is the product of its mass and velocity according to the equation p=mv.
The force that opposes or acts against motion when two surfaces rub against each other.
Action and reaction
Newtons 3rd law
Newtons 2nd Law
Object in motion stays in motion objects at rest stay at rest
Newtons 1st law
A force that creates air resistance
The force that moves and object
Force that acts perpendicular to motion
