Physical Science-Nic


Direction A position to which motion or another position is reffered/ the line or course on which something something is moving or is aimed to move or along which something is pointing or facing.
Motion Change in position
Position A condition with reference to place or location
Speed Rate of change of an objects position
Balanced Forces When the net force of an object is zero. There will be no change in the motion of an object. The object is neither motionless or maintaining a constant speed.
Force A push or a pull of an object
Friction A force that opposes motion between two surfaces that are touching
Gravity As traditionally defined, force of attraction between two masses
Inertia Tendency of an object to resist a change in motion
Magnetic Force Force of attraction or repulsion exerted by a magnet
Unbalanced Force When the net force of an object is greater than zero. There will be a change in the motion of an object. A motionless object will begin to move, while an object already moving will change its speed and or direction
Velocity Speed in a give direction
Constant Speed Movement at a fixed distance per unit of time. The same amount of distance is covered by the object in the same amount of time at each
Distance The degree or amount of separation between two points, lines, surfaces, or objects
Reference Point A place or object used for comparison to determine if an object is in motion.
Slope The steepness of a line on a graph, equal to its vertical change divided by its horizontal change
Energy The ability to do work. Energy is anything that can make matter move or change
Energy Transformation The process of changing energy from one form to another
