N1st law and motion

QuestionAnswer
distance how far you have traveled two positions. It is always positive. It is a scalar quantity.
displacement change in position It is the straight line distance between your starting position and ending position.
Scalar quantity that only requires magnitude (how big)
vector quantity that requires both magnitude and direction
speed how fast something is moving = D/T
Velocity Rate at which position changes Displacement/ Time
Newton's first law The law of inertia, an object at rest will stay at rest, object will stay in motion unless a force pushes an object.
Mass a measure of the amount of matter an object has
inertia the resistance an object has to change its motion
Force any push or pull that can cause a change in an objects motion
Net force the combination of all forces and an object
Balanced forces When the net force is both horizontal and vertical direction at 0N%
Unbalanced forces When the net force is both horizontal and vertical direction and not at a 0N%
Gravatational force A non-contacr force between two objects that is most apparent close to a large object.
