Flashcards in Force vocab Deck (13)
Formula used to calculate force
When 1 object pushes or pulls on another by touching it
The force of attraction between two objects
A force that resists motion between two surfaces that pressed together
Force exerted between electrically charged moving particles to create a field
Overall force on an object when all forces are acting on it combined
When two opposite forces are EQUAL then the net force
= 0 newtons
When two forces act in the same direction they ADD, and when two forces act unequally inthe opppsite direction they SUBTRACT.
push or pull that causes an object to start moving, stop moving, or change directions.
The resistance of an object to change
The greater an objects mass, the greater its inertia
First law of motion
Objects at rest stay at rest, and objects in motion stay in motion unless acted on by an unbalanced force.
Newton's 2nd law of motion
