Unbalanced Forces
Forces that result in a net force on an object and can cause changes in motion
Newton's Second Law
When an object is acted on by one or more outside forces, the total force is equal to the mass of the object times the resulting acceleration
Inertia
the tendency of a body to maintain is state of rest or uniform motion unless acted upon by an external force
Newton's Third Law
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
