What is the sum of all forces acting on an object? Net Force
What is a change in position compared to other objects? Motion

What is it called when you strike or hit something with any amount of force? Collide
What is another word for collide? Collision

False True or False? A train moving at a constant speed and a girl circling on a carousel are both examples of Newtons Third Law.
What is the definition of force? push or pull
What do we call the amount of matter in an object? mass
What is acceleration? the rate of change of velocity
What is velocity? BOTH speed and direction of an object
What law is force = mass times acceleration? Second Law
What law states an object will stay in motion unless an outside force acts on it? First Law
How many Newton laws are there? Three
