How fast an object moves.
Distance an object covers over the a certain period of time.
Speed in a given direction
Overall speed of an object
How something is measured. M, cm, seconds, hours, etc.
Used to compare one variable to another
The trial that is used to compare all the other trials
Usually the first trial or your base trial
Factors that do not change
Kept the same on purpose for each trial
The one factor you changed on purpose
When graphing results this is plotted on the X-axis
Used to show how the variable changed over time.
Time is always on the X-axis
Responding (Dependent) Variable
The measured result because of what you changed on purpose
Plotted on the Y-axis on the graph
Any and all factors involved in an experiment
Horizontal axis on the graph
Has manipulated/independent variable is plotted on this axis
Vertical axis on the graph (up/down)
Has responding/dependent variable is plotted on this axis
Prediction of the outcome
Includes both variables
Includes the reason why
DRY MIX graphing
DRY: Dependent Responding Y-axis
MIX: Manipulated Independent X-axis
Object's speed increases or decreases or there is a change in direction
a push or pull
Force that pulls objects toward each other. Depends on mass and distance to center.
Strength of force.
Amount of matter
Mass in motion
Gravity's pull on mass
Force acting between two objects that are touching. Prevents motion.
Force that must be overcome to start motion
All forces equal. No change in motion.
Indicates the path an object takes
Everything is balanced, so there is no change in motion
Total of all forces acting on an object
Unit to measure strength of force
All forces not equal, causes a change in motion
Arrow that indicates direction and strength of force
Tendency to resist any change in motion
Newtons Law 1
Object in motion will stay in motion, object at rest will stay at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force.
Newtons Law 2
An object will accelerate in the direction of force applied. Force = mass x acceleration.
Newtons Law 3
For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction.
Rise over Run. Represents speed on a distance time graph.
