centripetal force
the force that causes an object to move in a circular path
Newton's Second Law
the acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied
Newton's First Law
An object at rest remains at rest-- and an object in motion remains in motion-- unless acted upon by an outside force
free fall
the condition of an object when gravity is the only force acting on it
terminal velocity
the constant velocity of a falling object when the upward force of air resistance equals the downward force of gravity
( constant velocity )
the rate at which velocity changes
a property of a moving object that depends on the object's mass and velocity
the tendency of all objects to resist any change in motion
projectile motion
the curved path an object follows when it is thrown near the surface of the earth
Newton's Third Law
Whenever in object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first object
