Displacement
A vector quantity describing the straight-line distance between an initial and a final position of some particle or object.
Force
A vector quantity describing the push or pull on an object. The SI unit for force is the newton (N).
Mass
A scalar quantity used as a measure of an object's inertia.
Normal Force
