Physics Terms .
The best set for the science terms of physics. I am from Mr. Johnson's class but it should be the same for Mrs. Garvey's class.
Terms in this set (32)
the rate at which velocity changes
a natural force or object producing or used for obtaining specific results
the rule that the buoyant force on an object is equal to the weight of fluid the object displaces
upward force exerted by a fluid on a submerged object
Center of gravity
the point in an objet where the force of gravity appears to act
force that causes an object to lean/push against something to move in a circle
the potential energy stored in chemical bonds
the energy of electrical charges
a push or pull exerted on an object
the motion of a falling object when the only force acting on it is gravity.
the force that one surface exerts on another when the two surfaces rub against each other
the force that pulls objects toward each other
the tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion
Energy that an object has due to its motion.
Law of Conservation of Energy
rule states that energy can't be created or destroyed
the amount of matter in an object
the form of an energy associated with the position and motion of an object
a characteristic of a moving object that is related to the mass and velocity of an object
the overall force of an object when all the individual forces acting on it are added
Newton's 1st Law
an object in motion will stay in constant motion, unless it's acted upon by an unbalanced force (e.g. friction, air resistance)
Newton's 2nd Law
acceleration depends on the object's mass and on the objects mass and on the net force acting on the object
Newton's 3rd Law
for every action there's an equal and opposite reaction
stored energy which results from the position or shape of an object
the rate at which work is done
an object that is thrown
device that detects electromagnetic waves.
the distance an object travels per unit of time
total potential and kinetic energy of the particles in an object
forces that produce a nonzero net force which changes an object's motion
speed in a given direction
gravity's force on an object
force exerted on an object that causes it to move
