The process of changing postion
Motion
The starting point you use to describe the motion or the postion of an object.
Reference Point
The total length of your path.
Distance
The distance between your initial or starting position and your final postion.
Displacement
the distance an object moves divided by the time it took to move
Speed
the speed and direction of an objects motion
Velocity
the measure of the change in velocity during a period of time
Acceleration
A push or pull on an object
Force
A push or pull applied by one object to another object that is touching it.
Contact Force
A force that pushes or pulls an object without touching it
Non-Contact Force
a contact force that resists the sliding motion between 2 objects that are touching.
Friction
A noncontact attractive force that exists between all objects that have mass.
Gravity
When the net force on ana object is 0N the forces acting on it are...
Balanced Forces
When the net force acting on an object is not 0
Unbalanced Forces
The sum of the forces acting on an object
Net Force
The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion.
Inertia
If the net force acting on an object is 0 the motion of the object doesn't change.
1st Law of Motion
The acceleration of an object is equal to the net force applied to the object divided by the object's mass
2nd Law of Motion
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.
3rd Law of Motion
When 2 objects exert forces on each other, the 2 forces are a...
