# Newton's Laws/Forces

### Newton's Laws / Motion / Forces Vocab.

The force that pulls objects toward each other. Gravity
The force of gravity on an object at the surface of the planet. Weight
The greatest velocity a falling object can achieve. Terminal velocity
The motion of a falling object when the only force acting on it is gravity. Free Fall
A push or a pull exerted on an object. Force
The overall force on an object when all the individual forces acting on an object are added together. Net force
The force that one surface exerts on another when the two rub against each other. Friction
The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. Inertia
The fluid friction experienced by objects falling through the air. Air resistance
A unit of measure that equals the force required to accelerate one kilogram of mass at 1 meter per second per second. Newton
Equal forces acting on an object in opposite directions. Balanced forces
A nonzero net force, which changes an object’s motion. Unbalanced forces
Write the mathematical formula for force. Mass x Acceleration
Write the mathematical formula for acceleration. Force/Mass
