Newton's Laws

Forces and Dynamics

Newton’s 2nd Law (Total force) = (mass of an object)(acceleration); F = ma
Force – reaction the other of the forces of interaction; distinguishes from the “partner” force acting during an interaction
Force pair when two different objects influence each other through an interaction
Interaction when a pair of objects act; one object experiences one of the forces; the other object experiences the other force
Net force the vector sum of all forces acting on an object
Newton’s 1st Law Law of inertia: an object want to continue “keep doing what it is doing”(velocity unchanged; stay at rest or continuing in a straight line); Must be acted on by a force to change velocity, called an acceleration
Newton’s 2nd Law Quantitative expression of the effect of a set of forces acting; acceleration = (net force)/(mass)
Newton’s 3rd Law when a pair of objects interact, the force on each is equal in magnitude but in opposite directions; the magnitude of the acceleration each experiences is given by Newton’s 2nd Law, depends on the individual masses
Terminal velocity the condition of the net force equal zero; when the fluid friction equals the weight of an object; zero acceleration
Force - Action Arbitrary name for one of two forces; the other is the "reaction"

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.
