What is a push or a pull? Force
What will cause no change in acceleration of an object? Balanced Forces
What will cause a change in acceleration of an object? Unbalanced Forces
What is the calculation for force? F=ma (Force = mass X acceleration)
What is the unit used for force? Newton
What is the energy that is stored or of position? Potential Energy
What is energy of motion? Kinetic Energy
What is the measurement for how fast an object travels and uses the calculation distance/time? Speed
What is speed with direction? Velocity
What is the measurement of change in speed over time? Acceleration
What occurs when an unbalanced force acts on an object and causes it to change speed or direction? Acceleration
What is the resistance of an object to change speed or direction which depends on its mass? Inertia
What law says; "An object in motion will stay in motion and an object at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force"? Newton's First Law
What law is called the law of acceleration? Newton's Second Law
What law states that for every action force there is an equal and opposite reaction force? Newton's Third Law
What is heat energy? It is the energy from exothermic reactions or decomposising biomatter in compost. Thermal Energy
What is energy from the Sun that travels to the Earth in electromagnetic waves? Radiant Energy
What is the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom? It is the energy powering our sun. Nuclear Energy
What is the energy stored in chemical bonds? Type of energy seen in batteries, breaking down food or burning fossil fuels. Chemical Energy
What is energy associated with mechanical movement of gears or machines. Can be seen in the turning of windmills of the movement of the human body. Mechanical Energy
What is the energy stored in the stretching or bending of objects? Can be seen in rubber bands and tennis balls. Elastic Energy
What happens when one kind of energy changes into another kind? This is seen when the radiation of the sun helps to produce glucose in a plant into chemical energy. Energy Transforamtion
Which law states that energy cannot be created or destroyed? Law of the Conservation of Energy
What is the amount of force required to move an object over a distance? w= f X d (work is = force x distance) Work
What depends on mass and gravity? Weight
What is the amount of matter in an object? Mass

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.
