gravity
the force objects exert on each other because of their mass
work
In order for this to be done, motion must be made in the direction of the applied force
potential energy
energy that is stored
kinetic energy
energy in the form of motion
Newton-meter
unit that measures one Joule of work done in one second
Newton
unit of force
Joule
unit of work and energy
ke=1/2mv^2
formula used to calculate kinetic energy
gpe=mgh
formula used to calculate gravitational potential energy
9.8 m/s^2
acceleration due to gravity
w=Fd
