Chapt 1 and 2 Motion

Assessment Review

What determines how difficult it is to stop an object? momentum
The rate of change in velocity is called acceleration
What is used for a comparison when motion is described? Frame of Reference
The rate at which an object moves is its speed
Change in position in a certain amount of time is motion
Speed in a given direction is velocity
A negative acceleration is called deceleration
The velocity of an object changes if speed or direction changes
When deceleration occurs, velocity decreases
An example of constantly changing velocity is circular motion
Even when slowly moving a train cannot stop suddenly because of its large momentum
Speed that does not change is called constant speed
The Law of Conservation of Momentum states that momentum cannot be lost or gained
A distance-time graph for acceleration is always a curved line
When an object slows, it's velocity, speed, and momentum change
Force is necessary to stop, start, or change the direction of an object
When forces are balanced, the motion of the object does not change
What can be used to reduce friction? oil, wheels, ball bearings
Example of fluid friction? oil
Friction produced by wheels or ball bearings is called rolling friction
What friction has the highest resistance? sliding
An object at rest will remain at rest is explained in Newton’s First Law
Newton’s Second Law of Motion relates to force, mass, and acceleration
Kg x m/s/s = force
When working with force, weight is measured in Newtons
Newton’s Third Law of Motion describes for every action there is an equal but opposite reaction
Forces act in pairs falls under Newton’s Third Law
What is the value of gravitational acceleration? 9.8 m/s/s
As an object increases speed, the air resistance increases

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.
