Motion - Level 1

All the vocabulary for Level 1 of the Motion menu

motion the change of position of an object, by the action of a force
speed distance traveled in a certain amount of time (distance divided by time)
velocity the speed of an object ALONG WITH the direction it is traveling
force a push or a pull
speed equation speed = distance/time (speed equals distance divided by time)
acceleration the situation of speeding up (increasing velocity), slowing down (decreasing velocity), or changing direction
momentum how hard it is to stop an object (depends on BOTH the mass and velocity of an object)
mass the amount of matter (atoms) in an object
inertia an object's resistance to change in motion (ONLY depends on the mass of an object)
dependent variable that data that you are gathering, goes on the Y-axis
independent variable information known ahead that you choose, goes on the X-axis (time is almsot always independent)
extrapolation finding values not collected that are out beyond (or before) the graphed data
interpolation finding values not collected that are in between the graphed data
