gravitational force exerted on an object weight
acceleration of an object toward the center of a curved path or circular path centripetal acceleration
states that when one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts a force on the first object that is equal in strength and in the opposite direction Newton’s Third Law
property of a moving object that equals its mass times its velocity momentum
a push or pull first exerting force on a second What is a force?
The overall force of an object after all of the forces are added together. Net force
Equal forces acting on one object in an opposite directions. Balanced forces
When you add equal forces exerted in opposite directions, the net force is _____. zero
An object at rest will remain at rest, and an object that is moving at constant velocity will continue moving at constant velocity unless acted upon by a unbalanced force. Newton's First Law of Motion
What is mass? The amount of matter in an object.
How can mass be defined in terms of inertia? Mass can be defined as a measure of the intertia of an object.
What is Newton's Second Law of Motion? F=ma The net force of an object is equal to the product (addition) of its acceleration and mass.
