Ionizing radiation is any radiation capable of removing an orbital electron from the atom with which it interacts.

_____ is how fast something is moving, or, the rate of change of its position with time velocity/speed

Equation for velocity is: v=d/t. d is distantce traveled in time t.
The rate of change of velocity with time is ________ acceleration. (how quickly or slowly the velocity is changing)
Because acceleration is velocity divided by time, the unit is meters per second squared (m/s^2)
Newtons fundamental laws of motion: interia, force, action/reaction
Newtons first fundamental law of motion: inertia- a body will stay at rest or will continue to move with constant velocity in a straight line unless acted on by an external force.
Newtons first fundamental law: (simple) If no force acts on an object, there will be no acceleration.. once in motion however, it will continue to move forever, even when the pushing force is removed, unless an opposing force is present.
Newtons second law: Force- the force (F) that acts on an object is equal to the mass (m) of the object multiplied by the acceleration (a) produced. (If a body of mass has an acceleration, then the force on it is given by the mass times the acceleration)
Newtons third law: Action/reaction- for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. ("action" was newtons word for "force".. if you push on a heavy block, the block will push back with same force you apply)
The weight of an object is equal to the product of its mass and the acceleration of gravity.
The product of the mass of an object and its velocity is called momentum
Work is the product of ___ and ____. In mathematical terms the unit of work is the Force and distance. Joule.
_________ is the rate of doing work power.

_____ is the transfer of heat through a material of by touching conduction. ex- when a hot object and a cold object are placed in contact.
______ is the transfer of "hot" molecules in a gas or liquid from one place to another. Convection. ex- steam radiator or forced air furnace heats a room.
