Forces and Motion

TermDefinition
Gravity a force that exists between any two objects that have mass
law of inertia the tendency of an object to remain at rest or in motion
net force the resulting force determined by combining all of the forces acting on an object
distance the amount of space between one point and another
mass the amount of matter in an object
newton's first law An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
newton's second law The acceleration of an object as produced by a net force is directly proportional to the magnitude of the net force, in the same direction as the net force, and inversely proportional to the mass of the object.
newton's third law For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects.
acceleration due to gravity the change in velocity caused by a gravitational force
