Force & Motion Vocab

6th grade Science Force and Motion Vocabulary

TermDefinition
reference point a point used to find or describe the location of an object or the starting point used to describe the motion or position of an object
position the location of an object or an object's distance and directions from a reference point
direction the path that an object is moving or facing
motion a change in position or the process of changing position
balanced force equal forces on an object that do not change the position or motion of an object; balanced forces = no movement
unbalanced force a force on an object that causes change in the position or motion of an object; one side has more force than another side of an object
resting position when an object remains in the same location or spot
speed the rate of change of position (or distance traveled) with respect to time
velocity the speed and direction of an object
displacement the difference between the initial or starting position and the final position of an object that has been moved
x-axis the horizontal line with labels on a coordinate grid; the independent variable (often time) is represented on the x-axis
y-axis the vertical line with labels on a coordinate grid; the dependent variable (often distance) is represented on the y-axis
distance-time graph illustrates change in motion; time is graphed on the x-axis and distance is on the y-axis
speed-time graph illustrates the speed of an object on the y-axis and the time on the x-axis
force a push or pull (examples are gravity, friction, magnetism, wind, etc.)
