Two values change in opposite directions
Newton's Second Law
Acceleration produced by a net force on an object is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, is in the same direction as the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass of the object.
Liquids and gases are objects that flow.
Air Resistance
Friction acting on something moving through air.
Free-Body Diagram
A diagram showing all the forces acting on an object.
The amount of force per unit of area.
Terminal Speed
The speed at which the acceleration of a falling object is zero because friction balances the weight.
Terminal Velocity
Terminal speed together with the direction of motion.
