Terms in this set (24)
any change in the velocity of an object
what causes the object to change its motion
the apparent loss of weight of a body partly or completely immersed in a fluid
a force that is directed toward the center, and is required to keep an object moving in a circular path or orbit.
a force that visually touches an object, thereby causing the result
the constant group in an experiment that you compare the variables to
slowing down, braking, or negative acceleration.
the mass of an object divided by its volume
the quantity in a lab that is plotted on the vertical axis of a graph; it depends on something else.
which way the object moves
a situation in which the resultant force on an object is zero.
a push or pull on an object that can make the object move, change the motion, or change shape
the force that resists sliding motion between two surfaces in contact
the force of attraction between objects
the quantity plotted on the horizontal axis of the graph. This is the part of the lab that you can change.
the tendency of an object to remain at rest or to continue moving in a straight line.
mass times velocity
a force that you can't see touching an object, but you can see the results.
what gets the force
what happens because of force
the distance a moving object covers in unit time, ex. mph.
a quantity such as velocity or force, which must be specified by its size and directions.
