When mass increases, by how much does gravity increase? What is the relationship?

By the same amount, because they are directly proportional

New cards
3

When distance ______ gravity increases by what factor? What is that relationship?

When distance DECREASES, gravity increases by 4 times. It is an inversely proportional relationship.

New cards
4

What is ALWAYS the independent variable?

X axis variable

New cards
5

What are the 4 types of friction?

They are: static friction, sliding friction, rolling friction, and fluid friction.

New cards
6

Static Friction definition?

Static friction is defined as the frictional force that acts between the surfaces when they are at rest with respect to each other. EXP: Table lamp resting on the table.

New cards
7

Sliding Friction Definition?

Sliding friction is defined as the resistance that is created between any two objects when they are sliding against each other. EXP: Two cards sliding against each other in a deck.

New cards
8

Rolling Friction definition?

Rolling friction is defined as the force which resists the motion of a ball or wheel and is the weakest types of friction. EXP: Rolling of the log on the ground

New cards
9

Fluid Friction?

Fluid friction is defined as when a solid object bases through a liquid or a gas: the friction strength is dependant on the "thickness" or viscosity of the conditions. EXP: Swimming in a lake

How many grams are in 1 Newton?

100g per Newton

11

Can you have side arrows canceled if the free body diagram has a constant SPEED?

Yes

New cards
12

Can you have side arrows canceled if it says constant VELOCITY?

No, velocity implies movement even when it is constant

New cards
13

Reinforce:

Two forces acting on an object in the same direction combine into one stronger force

New cards
14

Counteract:

Two forces acting on an object from opposite directions counteract each other. The direction of motion goes in the direction of the STRONGER force.

New cards
15

Cancel:

When forces are equal and opposite to one another, they are balanced and there is no effect on the motion of the object.
