Newton's 2nd law explains the relationship between_____,_____&__________ Mass, force, and acceleration
A piece of paper and a penny will not fall at the same rate because of Air resistance
In the absence of air, a marble and a bowling ball would fall at The same rate.
The amount of gravitational force between objects depends on their______ and the ________________________ Masses and the distance between them

Formula for Newton's 2nd law F=ma
Friction between two moving objects is____. Friction between two objects at rest is ______ Sliding, static
A car rounding a curve is subject to ______ force. Centripetal
The downward force exerted on objects due to gravity is called Weight
As objects move farther apart, the force of gravity Decreases
_____is constant no matter where you are in the universe;_____varies with the gravitational pull. Mass, weight
When air resistance balances the weight of an object that is falling, the velocity Remains constant
__________occurs when gravitational forces and air resistance equalize on an object that is falling toward Earth and the object stops accelerating. Terminal velocity
Any object thrown through the air is a Projectile
Mass is a measure of the amount of ____ in an object. Matter
When the same amount of force is applied to 2 different masses, the larger mass willl be accelerated _____ the smaller mass. Less than
List the two factors that affect friction: The kinds of surfaces in contact and the force is pressing the 2 surfaces together.
If you exert a force on 500 N on a wall, what is the force the wall exerts on you? -500 N
As acceleration due to gravity increases, the weight of objects Increases
