PLAY
gravity
noncontact attractive force that exists between all objects that have matter
accelerate
change in velocity
force pair
two forces that result from two objects exerting forces on each other
inertia
tendency of an object to resist a change in motion
Newton's First Law of Motion
ates that if the net force on an object is zero, the motion of the object does not change. This is known as the Law of Inertia. An object at rest or an object in motion will remain at rest of in motion until acted upon by an unbalanced force
Newton's Second Law of Motion
Force = Mass X Acceleration
Newton's Third Law of Motion
states that when one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts a force of the same size, but in the opposite direction, on the first object
