IPC Forces


Accuracy The closeness of a measured value to a standard or known value.
Precision The closeness of two or more measurements to each other.
Net Force The sum of all the forces acting on an object.
Acceleration A change in speed and/or position.
Mass A measure of the amount of matter contained in a physical body.
Momentum A measure of the motion of a body equal to the product of its mass and velocity.
Conservation of Momentum For a collision occurring between object 1 and object 2 in an isolated system, the total momentum of the two objects before the collision is equal to the total momentum of the two objects after the collision.
Inertia The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion.
Unbalanced Force The net force of an object does not equal zero which results in a change in the motion of the object.
Balanced Force The net force on an object is zero and the object’s motion does not change.
Acceleration due to Gravity The acceleration which is gained by an object because of the gravitational force. The unit for this measurement is the unit of time squared, for example, 8 m/s2.
Gravitational Force A force of attraction between two objects with mass.
Action Force The force acting in one direction.
Reaction Force The force acting in the opposite direction.

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.
