14 terms

This physics set covers important concepts relating to kinematics and dynamics, including Newton's laws of motion, velocity, force, and others

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

Perpendicular component of the force caused when two surfaces push against each other, denoted by N.

Rotational Equilibrium

State where the sum of the torques acting on a body is zero, giving it no net angular acceleration. An object may be in rotational equilibrium, translational equilibrium, or both simultaneously.
