TermDefinition
Gravity The force which attracts objects towards one another, especially the force that makes things fall to the ground
Isaac Newton’s Three Laws of Motion The first law is often called the law of inertia: The second law states Force = mass x acceleration (measured in Newtons (N)) The third law states for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Acceleration The rate at which the velocity of an object changes over time
Force Any interaction which tends to change the motion of an object. Force is a push or pull upon an object resulting from the object's interaction with another object
Speed How fast an object is moving; usually measured by how much distance is covered in a certain amount of time
Velocity How fast an object is moving and in which direction. Speed describes only how fast an object is moving, whereas velocity gives both how fast and in what direction the object is moving.
Elasticity The tendency of solid materials to return to their original shape after being deformed.
Trajectory The path described by a projectile flying or an object moving under the action of given forces.
Terminal Velocity The maximum velocity attainable, especially by a freely falling body, under given conditions. Also known as terminal speed.
Sound Waves The form that sound takes when it passes through air, water, etc.
Light Waves Spectrum of wavelengths that you can see. Each wavelength is sensed as a color. The basic colors in the spectrum are: (also colors of the rainbow)
Physics & Math Formula Sheet This is a reference guide for the key formulas for math & physics calculations used in game development

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.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
