Velocity Speed combined with the direction of motion.
Vector A physical quantity that has both size and direction.
Acceleration A measure of how quickly velocity changes.

Force A push or pull that acts on an object.
Newton's Second Law of Motion F=ma
Net force The combination of all forces acting on an object.
Balanced Forces A set of forces that cancel one another so there isno overall force on an object.
