# Motion,forces,energy

### Vocabulary

TermDefinition
1. Motion 1. An object's change in position relative to a reference point.
2. Reference Point 2. an object that appears to stay in place.
3. Speed 3. The distance traveled divided by the time interval during which the motion occured.
4. Velocity 4. The speed of an object in a particular direction.
5. Acceleration 5. The rate at which velocity changes overtime;an object accelerates if it's speed, direction, or both change.
6. Force 6. a push or pull upon an object resulting from the object's interaction with another object. Whenever there is an interaction between two objects, there is a force upon each of the objects.
7. Newton 7. The SI derived unit used to measure force. One newton is equal to the force needed to accelerate a mass of one kilogram one meter per second per second.
8. Net force 8. The sum of all the forces acting on an object.
9. Balanced forces 9. two forces acting in opposite directions on an object, and equal in size. Anytime there is a balanced force on an object, the object stays still or continues moving continues to move at the same speed and in the same direction.
10. Unbalanced forces 10. Forces that cause a change in the motion of an object.
11. Energy 11. In physics, the ability to do work. It may exist in potential, kinetic, thermal, electrical, chemical, nuclear, or other various forms. There are, moreover, heat and work—i.e., energy in the process of transfer from one body to another.
12. Potential energy 12. Stored energy that depends upon the relative position of various parts of a system.
13. Kinetic energy 13. The energy of a body in motion.
14. Energy Transformation 14. The process of changing energy from one form into another form.

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:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

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.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
