Science 3.1 and 3.2: Net Force and Newton's First Law
Terms in this set (16)
the force on an object is the sum of all forces acting on the object
a _______ is needed to make any object move
if the forces act in the same direction, the strengths are __________
if the forces are moving in opposite directions the strengths are __________
the directions that the forces act
whether you add or subtract depends on the ________________
the same direction as the larger force
when forces are subtracted to find the net force, the directions of the net force is ____________________
is equal to one force on the object, it can be equal
sometimes the net force on an object _____________________
because it allows you to predict how an object's motion will change
why is it important to find the net force of an object?
the net force on the object
what determines an object's motion?
forces that have a net force equal to zero
forces that have a net force not equal to zero
objects at rest stay at rest unless acted upon by unbalanced forces
Newton's First Law of Motion 1
objects stay in motion unless acted upon by unbalanced forces
Newton's First Law of Motion 2
describes what happens to an object when the forces on it are balanced
Newton's First Law of Motion 3
if an object is stable, then nothing changed
Newton's First Law of Motion 4
it is a balanced force because there are no forces acting on it.
are the forces on a stationary object balanced? Why or why not?
