MMS Force and Motion

Force A push, pull, or change in direction
magnitude the strength of a force (greater magnitude = bigger force)
gravity the force of 1 object with mass pulling on another object with mass
mass the amount of "stuff" or matter in an object
Newtons The unit of measurement for force (N)
Acceleration speeding up, slowing down, or changing direction
Speed Distance divided by time or how far an object travels in a certain amount of time
Friction A force that exists between two objects and is always the opposite of motion.
Balanced Force When an object is NOT accelerating (speeding up, slowing down, or changing direction)
Unbalanced Force When an object is accelerating (speeding up, slowing down, or changing direction)
Newton's 1st Law The Law of Inertia - an object that is moving will keep moving and an object at rest will stay at rest UNLESS another force acts on the object
Newton's 2nd Law F=m x a When mass increases, force will increase. When acceleration increases, force will increase.
Newton's 3rd Law For every force there is another force acting in the opposite direction but equal in size

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
