What is the force of attraction between two masses called? Gravity
A force that resists motion between two surfaces that are pressed together is called... Friction
What is the overall force acting on an object when all the forces are combined? Net force

Is it possible to have balanced forces on a moving object? Yes
What is needed to change an object's motion? an unbalanced force
The resistance of an object to a change in the speed or the direction of its motion is called... Inertia
Any force that keeps an object moving in a circle is... Centripetal
