Chapter Four

measurement and motion

acceleration the rate of change of velocity over time
uniform acceleration see constant accelertaion
air resistance the resisting effect on a moving object due to friction of air.
delta the symbol that indicates the difference or change between two quantities.
slope a line's vertical change divides by its horizontal change
time of flight the elapsed time an object or projectile spends in the air
m/sec^2 a metric unit of measure for velocity
free fall movement that is due only to the force of gravity.
friction the force that opposed the relative motion of bodies.
initial speed the speed an object has at the beginning of an experiment
term a component of an equation
terminal speed maxium speed reached by an object in free fall; the speed at which forces of gravity and air resistance are equal
constant acceleration an accerelation that does not change; it is due to a velocity that changes at a constant rate
acceleration due to gravity(g) the acceleration of anobject due to earth's gravitational field strength;equal to 9.8 m/sec^2 on earth

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.
