Newton's Laws

TermDefinition
Force The push or pull that acts on an object
Inertia The tendency of an object to resist a change in its state of motion
Friction the resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another.
Speed the rate at which someone or something is able to move or operate
Velocity The rate of change of the position of an object, equivalent to a specification of its speed and direction of motion,
Acceleration the change in velocity (speed and direction)
Newton's First Law The state of motion of an object does not change until a force is applied to it.
Balanced Forces When all of the forces on an object cancel one another out.
Unbalanced Force Where a certain force is either partially canceled or not canceled at all by other forces
Action When one object applies a force to a second
Reaction When a second object reacts to the first object
Newton's Second Law of Motion Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass.
Gravity the force that attracts a body toward the center of the earth, or toward any other physical body having mass.
Weight a body's relative mass or the quantity of matter contained by it
Newton's Third Law of Motion For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.
