A push or pull.
The SI unit for force.
The combination of all the forces on an object.
The force that two surfaces exert on each other when they rub against each other.
When two solid surfaces slide over each other. Makes objects slow down and stop.
Acts between two objects that aren't moving. The force that must be overcome before an objects starts to move.
When a solid object moves through a fluid.
When an object rolls across a surface.
A force that pulls objects toward each other.
Law of Universal Gravitation
The force of gravity acts between all objects in the universe that have mass. Any two objects in the universe that have mass attract each other.
The amount of matter in an object.
A measure of the force of gravity on an object.
Newton's First Law of Motion
An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion, unless acted on by an outside force.
Resistance to change in motion.
Newton's Second Law of Motion
An objects acceleration depends on its mass and on the net force acting on it.
Newton's Third Law of Motion
Every action has an equal but opposite reaction.
A characteristic of a moving object that is related to the mass and velocity of the object.
Law of Conservation of Momentum
The total momentum of any group of objects is conserved unless outside forces act on the objects.
When the only force acting on an object is gravity. The force of gravity causes the object to accelerate.
A force that causes an object to move in a circular path.
A force that acts in the opposite direction of a falling object.
The velocity of an object when acceleration stops.
An object whose only force acting on it is gravity.
