Newtons 2nd law Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object).
Gloves covering for the hand made with a separate sheath for each finger and for the thumb.
Fire Extiguisher a portable container, usually filled with special chemicals for putting out a fire.
Fire blanket a large blanket-like piece of fire-resistant material such as fibreglass used in smothering a fire

Newtons 3rd law For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.
Test Tube a hollow cylinder of thin glass with one end closed, used in chemical and biological experimentation and analysis.
Inertia the property of matter by which it retains its state of rest or its velocity along a straight line so long as it is not acted upon by an external force.
Balanced force Balanced force is when two equal and opposite forces are applied on a body in two exactly opposite directions. We can say that when something is not moving then balanced forces are acting on that body.
Unbalanced force In physics, tension is the magnitude of the pulling force exerted by a string, cable, chain, or similar object on another object.

Microscope an optical instrument having a magnifying lens or a combination of lenses for inspecting objects too small to be seen or too small to be seen distinctly and in detail by the unaided eye.
Density the state or quality of being dense; compactness; closely set or crowded condition.
