25 Fundamental Forces 4 types: 1. gravity 2. electromagnetic 3. weak nuclear4. strong nuclearVary in strengthAct through contact or at a distance
26 Forces Force Pairs: forces moving in opposite directions Balanced forces: do notmove; push equally on each otherUnbalanced forces:acceleration (movement) in the direction of larger force
28 Friction Friction: force that opposes motion between 2 surfaces Static Friction: nonmoving surfacesKinetic Friction: moving surfaces- sliding or rolling(sliding friction is greater than rolling friction)

31 Newton’s Laws of Motion 1st Law of Motion: Law of InertiaAn object at rest will remain at rest;An object in motion will continue moving at a constant velocity unless acted upon by a net force.
32 Inertia Objects move only when net force is applied. Objects maintain state of motion.Inertia is related to mass.(small mass can be accelerated by small forcelarge mass can be accelerated by large force)
