1

Velocity

New cards

2

force pair

The action and reaction pair of forces that occur in an interaction.

New cards

3

Free Fall

motion under the influence of gravitational pull only

New cards

4

Interaction

a mutual action between objects where each object exerts an equal and opposite force on the other

New cards

5

Newton's First Law of motion

An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

New cards

6

Newton's Second Law of Motion

The acceleration produced by a net force on an object is directly proportional to the net force, is in the same direction as the net force, and is inversely proportional to the mass of the object.

New cards

7

Newton's Third Law of Motion

Whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first object.

New cards

8

Terminal Speed

The speed at which the acceleration of a falling object terminates when air resistance balances its weight.

New cards

9

Terminal Velocity

Terminal speed in a given direction

New cards

10

force pair

The action and reaction pair of forces that occur in an interaction.

New cards

11

Free Fall

motion under the influence of gravitational pull only

New cards

12

Interaction

a mutual action between objects where each object exerts an equal and opposite force on the other

New cards

13

Scalar quantity

A quantity that can be completely specified by its magnitude

New cards

14

Acceleration

the rate at which velocity changes with time; the change in velocity may be in magnitude or direction or both. usually measured in units of m/s^2

New cards

15

Air Resistance

the force of friction acting on an object due to its motion in air

New cards

16

Equilibrium Rule

the vector sum of forces acting on an object that is not accelerating is 0

New cards

17

Force

a push or pull

New cards

18

Free Fall

falling under the influence of gravity only - falling without air resistance

New cards

19

Friction

the force that opposes motion

New cards

20

Hang Time

the time that one's feet are off the ground during a vertical jump

New cards

21

Inertia

the property by which objects resist changes in motion

New cards

22

Kilogram

unit of mass. one kg is the mass of 1 L of water at 3^0 c

New cards

23

Mass

the quantity of matter in an object. more specifically a measure of the inertia that an object exhibits

New cards

24

Net Force

The combination of all forces acting on an object

New cards

25

Newton

SI unit of force

New cards

26

Support Force

the upward force that balances the weight of an object on a surface

New cards

27

Speed

The distance an object travels per unit of time

New cards

28

Vector quantity

a quantity that has both magnitude and direction

New cards

29

vector

an arrow that represents the magnitude and direction of a quantity

New cards

30

Velocity

The speed of an object and specification of its direction of motion

New cards

31

Volume

the quantity of space an object occupies

New cards

32

weight

How hard you push on a support force

New cards

33

dynamic equilibrium

equilibrium when you are moving

New cards

34

What will help you answer the most questions on the exam?

Zero net force = Equilibrium = Zero Acceleration = Constant velocity (can be zero/ at rest)

New cards

35

are satilites in equilibrium?

No because they are constantly turning.

New cards

36

Why do all freely falling objects accelerate at 9m/s/s?

Because they all have the same mass to weight ratio.

New cards

37

What do we measure weight in?

Newtons

New cards

38

What do we measure mass in?

Kilograms
