Physics Review

force a push or a pull
balanced forces forces on an object that combine to give a zero net force and do not change the motion of the object
unbalanced forces the forces acting on a object that cause a change in velocity; making the object speed up, slow down, or change direction
net force the combination of all forces acting on an object
at rest a speed of zero
speed distance divided by time
direction the path that an object is moving or facing
motion a change in an object's position
friction the force that opposes the motion of one surface as it moves across another surface
velocity speed with direction
distance size of the gap between two places
rate a comparison of two quantities measured in different units
acceleration a change in velocity (speed or direction)
Newton's 1st law an object in motion tends to stay in motion & an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an outside force.(Law of Inertia)
Newton's 2nd law the acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied (F=ma)
Newton's 3rd law For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
inertia the tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion
magnitude The great size or importance of something
action movement caused by a force
reaction resistance or opposition to a force, influence or movement
law of conservation of energy the law that states that energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be changed from one form to another

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.
