Elastic Forces If it returns to its original shape after is squeezed or streched
Inertia The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion
Momentum You can calculate the movement of a moving object by multiplying the objects mass and velocity
Law of Conservation of Momentum The total momentum of any group of object remains the same
