New cards

force

a push or pull upon an object

New cards

New cards

balanced force

when forces on an object are of equal magnitude and in opposite directions; no acceleration; 0 net force

New cards

New cards

unbalanced force

when forces on an object do not cancel out; causes acceleration; net force is not 0

New cards

New cards

net force

the sum of all the forces acting on an object; add forces in same direction, subtract forces in opposite directions.

New cards

New cards

friction

a force that opposes motion between two surfaces that are in contact

New cards

New cards

inertia

the tendency of an object to resist a change in motion unless an outside force acts on it

New cards

New cards

weight

the measure of the force of gravity on an object; F=mg

New cards

New cards

gravitational strength

the attractive force existing between any two objects that have mass; the greater the objects' mass the greater the gravitational strength; the shorter the distance the greater the gravitational strength

New cards

New cards

Mass

The amount of matter in an object

New cards

New cards

Newton

the SI unit for force, (1N=1kg∙m/s²)

New cards

New cards

Acceleration

The change in velocity over time

New cards

New cards

Example of Newton's 1st Law; inertia

New cards

New cards

Newton's Second Law of Motion

The acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied. The greater the force, the greater the acceleration. The greater the mass, the lesser the acceleration.
