Mass
The amount of matter that an object is made of
Force
A push or pull on an object
Net Force
The sum or difference of all of forces acting on an object.
acceleration
When an object is at its terminal velocity, it has no ____.
terminal velocity
When an object in freefall gets to its maximum speed. It has no acceleration.
pressure
the force that an object covers over how much area it's covering
object, mass, acceleration

force, mass
The "g"-value can be calculated by dividing ___ over ___.
slower, friction
Air resistance will make a heavier object move ____ in freefall due to its increased _____. This is an inertial pulling force (opposite direction) on an object.
frictional force
an inertial pulling force (opposite direction) on an object
normal force
A force that is put on a stable object to support it.
air resistance
