# Newton's Laws

### 8.6A 8.6B 8.6C

TermDefinition
Acceleration change in speed and / or direction of an object’s motion
Balanced force equal and opposite forces on an object that result in no change in position, direction, or motion; net force equals zero
Friction the force that one surface exerts on another when the two surfaces rub together
Inertia tendency of an object to resist change in motion
Law of action-reaction for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction
Law of force and acceleration when an object that has a constant mass is acted upon by a force, the object will accelerate in the same direction as the force applied f=ma
Law of inertia the tendency of an object to resist change in motion unless acted upon by a force
Net force measurement of the total forces exerted on an object
Speed distance traveled by an object in a given amount of time
Unbalanced force unequal forces on an object that may result in a change in position, direction or motion; net force does not equal zero
Velocity a measurement of an object's speed and direction
Force push or pull
Newton’s First Law of Motion the tendency of an object to resist change in motion unless acted upon by a force
Newton’s Second Law of Motion when an object that has a constant mass is acted upon by a force, the object will accelerate in the same direction as the force applied f-ma
Newton’s Third Law of Motion for every action, there is an equal and opposite
