rate of change in potion
define velocity
rate of motion in direction discribes both speed and direction
define acceleration
rate of change in volicty
how are speed and volicty different?
speed is limit while volicty has direction
reat of change in potion is?
speed plus direction is called?
the rate of change of volicty is called?
the rate of motion that doesnt change is?
constant speed
the unit for speed is?

the unit used for volicty is?
the unit used for time is?
sec or s
the unit used for acceleration due to gravity is?
mass divided by acceleration
what is acceleration due to gravity? give example
ball falling from sky, incress of volicty due to the force of object
what does deceleration mean?
decreases of speed negitive rate of charge
whitch of Newtons laws of motion states that an object at rest will stay at rest or an object in motion will stay in motion until acted apon by outside force?
first law
whitch of Newtons laws of motion is illustrated by the forward motion of a passenger when a car suddenly stops moving? what is the term we learned for this?
Newtons first law,,,inercia
any pull or push is called?
teh product of mass times acceleration equals?
what term is used to describe the tendency of an object to keep moving?
a force that opposes motion between two surfaces that are touching each other is?
the downword force excrted by earth is?
on the earth a feather will fall more slowly than a brick because of?
air restance
define weight
gravitational force between earth adn any body at earths surface
which of Newtons laws explaines that as the mass increases the amount of force needed to move the objec aslso increase?
Newtons 2nd law
the frictional force air excerts on a moving object is called?
air restance
using the same force which mass would have the greater acceleration- larger mass or smaller?
smaller mass
the path of a projectile object is?
the two conponents of a curved motion are?
the motion of an object parrallel to the surface of earth is?
the force directed toward the center of a circle or curve is called?
centriptial force
state Newtons 3rd law of motion
when one object excerts a force on a 2nd object the second object excerts a force on the first that is equal in size and opposite in direction
state the law of conservation of motion
the total amount of momentum of a group of objects does not change unless out side force act on the objects
define work
the transfer of energy through motion

as the frequency increases the wave length?
matter vibrates in a compressional wave
in a direction that the wave length is going
define compression and frequency
the deasearea in a compressonal wave, the less dstance are in a compresice wave
a pitch is?
highness or lowness of a sound
the higher the frequency the ____ the pitch... the lower the frequency the ______ the pitch?
higher,,, lower
the intensity of a sound wave depends on?
amount of energy in each wave
loudness is?
human perseption of sound intensity
define the doppler effect
obdervatied when the sourface of sounf is moving relation to observer
dfine the electromagneneitc spectrum. name the compontenets of spectrum
group of transire waves produced by motion of electitry charged particals, specturmaranges from low frequency/energy raido waves to high frequnecy/energy raido waves
use your mnemonic device
it is only visible portion of the electromagnetic specturn
