Mrs. Patelunas' Forces, Friction and Momentum Vocabulary

QuestionAnswer
kinetic friction the friction caused by moving objects
static friction the friction that exists between two stationary objects
force a push or a pull that gives energy to an object
momentum the product of an object's mass and its velocity
Newtons the unit of force
Net Force the total of all the forces acting on an object
Law of Conservation of Momentum the total momentum of a group of objects remains the same after collision unless forces like gravity or friction act on the objects.
balanced forces the net force acting on an object is zero
unbalanced forces the net force acting on an object is not zero
sliding friction the type of kinetic friction that occurs when two solid objects rub against each other
fluid friction the type of kinetic friction that occurs when objects move through a liquid or a gas
rolling friction the type of kinetic friction that occurs when an object rolls over a surface
