Newton's Laws of Motion
Terms in this set (9)
The quantity of matter in an object. A dictionary has a mass of about one kilogram
Contact force between objects that slide (or tend to slide) against each other.
A push or a pull, measured in newtons. Pushing a desk across the room.
(Symbol: N) is the International System of Units (SI) derived unit of force. It is named after Isaac Newton in recognition of his work on classical mechanics, specifically Newton's second law of motion. One newton is the force that will give an object of mass 1 kg an acceleration of 1 m/s².
The quantity of space an object occupies.A bowling ball and basketball are about the same size and take up the same amount of space, therefore they have the same, or similar, volume
The property of things to resist changes in motion.
The weight of an object is the force of gravity on the object and may be defined as the mass times the acceleration of gravity. It is measured in newtons. You may weigh 100 pounds on Earth but in space your weight will be reduced.
Terminal speed is when something falling cannot gain any more speed because the friction pushing against that something is equal to the force of gravity pulling down on that something.
Motion under the influence of gravity only. Jumping off a rock into the ocean.
