SI base unit for mass
Sum total of a force applied to an object over a given period of time/accumulation of the force in a given time period
Force that resists the motion of an object due to rubbing or sliding of surfaces against one another/always negative b/c it opposes the direction of the motion of the object
Force that turns or rotates an object/equal to the force applied times the distance from the point of rotation to the point where the force is applied
Force that opposes the motion of an object due to its passing through air or liquid
Energy due to motion/equal to one half the mass of an object times its velocity squared
SI unit of force
Transfer of energy from potential to kinetic or vice versa
Sum of an objects potential & kinetic energies
Stored energy/can be stored in a spring or due to gravity
Force an object feels when it is sitting on a surface (like a floor, table, wall, ramp)/force is perpendicular to the surface
An object in motion will stay in motion & an object at rest will stay at rest until acted upon by an outside force
The mass of an object times its velocity
SI unit of energy or work
The sum of the forces on an object is equal to the mass of the object times its acceleration/net force = ma
SI base unit for time
The mass of an object times the acceleration due to gravity (g)
SI base unit for length
For every action there is an equal but opposite reaction
