Balanced Forces

Forces acting on an object are equal Unbalanced Forces

Forces acting on an object are not equal Net Force

Larger force minus smaller force Friction

A force exerted on surfaces when they rub past each other Newton's 1st law

An object resting rests forever unless you apply a force.

An object moving will move forever unless you apply a force Newton's 2nd Law

F=ma, the force applied to an object in order to make it stop or go is equal to the object's mass multiplied by acceleration. Newton's 3rd Law

All actions have equal and opposite reactions. Inertia

The resistance of an object to move or stop. Acceleration

Rate of change in velocity Velocity

Distance divided by time, with a direction Speed

Distance divided by time. d/t Potential energy

Stored energy Kinetic energy

Released energy Work

work = force x distance
