What is the relationship between a reference point and motion? Motion occurs when an object changes postion over time when compared with a reference point.
How is it possible to be accelerating but traveling at a constant speed? Acceleration can occur simply by a change in direction.
How can you find the center of mass of an object? You can find the center by spinning the object.
Which can change, mass or weight? weight changes as the gravitational force changes
