# Force & Motion

Friction A force that opposes the motion of another object; making the object slow down, or giving it traction to get moving.
Gravity The force that pulls every object towards one another.
Mass The measure of the amount of matter (stuff) in an object.
Acceleration / Force The more force you apply, the greater the acceleration. The less force you apply, the lesser the acceleration
Acceleration / Mass The greater the mass, the more force necessary to get an object to accelerate.
Weight A gravitational force exerted on an object's mass, that changes with position.
Speed Distance over time.
Velocity Speed in a given direction.
Acceleration Change in speed or direction.
Balanced Forces When the two forces acting on a singular object are equal. There is no movement.
Unbalanced Forces When the two forces acting on a singular object are not equal. There is movement in the direction that the stronger force is pushing/pulling
Inertia The resistance to change in motion.
Force A push or a pull in any direct
Newton The unit that force is measured in.
Net Force The combination of all the forces acting on an object
Newton's 1st Law An object in motion stays in motion & an object at rest stays at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
Newton's 2nd Law Force = mass x acceleration
Newton's 3rd Law For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
