1

## Formula used to calculate force

### Force= mass•acceleration

2

## Contact force

### When 1 object pushes or pulls on another by touching it

3

## Gravity

### The force of attraction between two objects

4

## Friction

### A force that resists motion between two surfaces that pressed together

5

## Magnetic force

### Force exerted between electrically charged moving particles to create a field

6

## Net force

### Overall force on an object when all forces are acting on it combined

7

## Balanced force

###
When two opposite forces are EQUAL then the net force

= 0 newtons

8

## Unbalanced force

### When two forces act in the same direction they ADD, and when two forces act unequally inthe opppsite direction they SUBTRACT.

9

## Force

###
push or pull that causes an object to start moving, stop moving, or change directions.

(vector quantity)

10

## Inertia

###
The resistance of an object to change

The greater an objects mass, the greater its inertia

11

## First law of motion

### Objects at rest stay at rest, and objects in motion stay in motion unless acted on by an unbalanced force.

12

## Newton's 2nd law of motion

### Force=mass•acceleration
