An english scientist and mathematician Sir Isaac Newton
Push or pull Force
Equal forces acting on one object in opposite directions balanced forces
Forces that produce a non zero net force which changes an objects direction unbalanced forces
The overall force on an object when all individual forces acting on it are added together net force
A unit of measure that equals the force required to accelerate one kilogram of mass a 1 meter per second per second newton
The force that two surfaces exert on each other when they rub against each other friction
A force that pull things toward each other gravity
A measure of the amount of matter in an object mass
The force of gravity on a person or object at the surface of a planet weight
Objects falling through air experience a type of fluid friction air resistance
An object that is thrown projectile
The tendency for an object to resist change in motion No inertia
An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will remain in motion until acted upon by an outside force newtons 1st law
A change in speed or direction depends on an objects mass and overall net force acting on the object newtons 2nd law
With every action there is an equal and opposite reaction newtons 3rd law
A characteristic of a moving object that is related to the mass and velocity of the object momentum
In the absence of outside forces,the total momentum of objects that interact do not change law of conservation of momentum
any object that orbits another object in space satelite
any force that causes an object to move in a circular path centripetal force
