What property of matter makes it want to continue to move indefinitely unless acted upon by an outside force?
Objects at rest tend to remain at rest and objects in motion tend to remain in motion unless acted upon by a force
Newton's first law of motion is known as the law of inertia, what does this law state?
When the net force on a system is zero there is no motion and the system is said to be in a state of what?
The acceleration of a system is directly proportional to the force and inversely proportional to the mass, F = ma
Newton's second law is the law of accelerated motion, what does this law state and what is the formula that goes along with the law?
F = net force, m = mass, a = acceleration
In the formula for accelerated motion, what do the variables mean and what are the units for each variable?
For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction
Newton's third law is the law of action-reaction, what does this law state?
Static (between stationary objects), kinetic (sliding objects), rolling (rolling object and stationary surface), fluid (moving object immersed in a fluid)
List and explain the four types of friction.
The magnitude (amount) of friction is proportional (increases / decreases as the other increases / decreases) to the what acting on the system?
