Force/Motion 5

force a push or pull on an object
motion change in position measured by distance and time
speed the distance an object travels in a certain amount of time (distance over time)
velocity how fast (speed) and how far (direction)
acceleration change in velocity; tells us the rate speed or direction changes
momentum measurement of the amount of force it would take to stop an object's motion (usually forward; mass (kg) x velocity (m/s); unit is kg*m/s
direction "the way" an object is headed
mass how much matter is in an object
gravity a force that pulls objects towards earth's center
inertia the tendency of motionless objects to remain motionless and moving objects to remain in motion
Newton's 1st Law law of inertia; an object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon; an object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon
Newton's 2nd Law force = mass x acceleration
Newton's 3rd Law for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
friction force from two objects rubbing against each other; resistance to move
weight gravity's pull on an object
balanced force do not cause a change in motion; equal in size and opposite in direction
unbalanced force always cause a change in motion; forces are not equal and opposite
net force overall force on an object

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
