The forces described in Newton's Third Law, that are equal and opposite to the reaction forces.
The force exerted "onto" an object.
All forces, when added, equal zero. Another way to say NO NET FORCE.
A unit of measure from which other SI units are derived.
i.e. meter, gram, liter
A combination of symbols that represents the elements in a compound.
The vectors that when added together yield a resultant.
The spreading out of a force over a large area so that one spot doesn't bear the brunt of the concentrated force.
When energy is transformed from one form to another, or moved from one place to another, or from one system to another.
For any object or system of objects in equilibrium, the sum of the forces acting equals zero.
The speed that a projectile, space probe, or similar objects must reach to extricate itself from the gravitational influence of the celestial body to which it is attracted.
Expansion of Water
When water becomes ice, it expands. Ice has open-structured crystals resulting from strong bonds at certain angles that increase its volume. This makes the ice less dense than water.
The combines action-reaction forces that interact with each other, as described in Newton's Third Law.
An illustration used to describe the applied forces, movements, and resulting reactions on a body in a given condition.
A mutual action between objects where each object exerts an equal and opposite force on the other
Energy due to the position of something or the movement of something.
The state of an object or system of objects for which there are no changes in motion (because there are no net forces)
For an object at rest, it is the upward force that balances the weight of the object at rest. Also called a support force.
A fake or false science that makes claims based on little to no scientific evidence and is not able to be proven wrong.
The forces described in Newton's Third Law, that are opposite and equal to the action forces.
Any quantity that is described by magnitude ONLY.
i.e. time, mass, volume, temperature
An upward force the balances the weight of an object on a surface. Also called a normal force.
The speed at which the acceleration of a falling object terminates because air resistance balances its weight.
Tendency of a substance to resist change in temperature with the gain or loss of heat energy.
The movement of forces from an area of weakness to an area of strength that is designed to handle the force.
The work done on an object equals the change in energy if the object
