Pseudo-force directed outward from center point
Force x distance/also equal to the change in kinetic energy
Integral of force with respect to time/also equal to the change in momentum
Study of the theory that all fundamental particles are vibrations of one-dimensional strings of energy in a higher-dimensional universe
Measure of force amplification achieved by using a tool (any mechanical device)/levers, gears, block & tackle/equal to Force Out/Force In or Velocity In/Velocity Out
g (four words)
Energy stored in a spring/by gravity/in a capacitor/in an inductor
The sum of the potential & kinetic energy of an object
'Work/Time'/also equal to force x velocity
Mass x velocity of an object
Defined as useful work per quantity of energy or Work In/Work Out or Mechanical Advantage/Ideal Mechanical Advantage
Reaction force described quantitatively by Newton's second and third laws/force applied on a surface in a direction perpendicular or normal to the surface/propellers & rockets
Force toward a center point
Mass x g x height
Circular motion where the speed of orbit is constant
Any type of back and forth motion where there is no damping (e.g. ideal springs/ideal pendulums/LC circuits)
One half mass x velocity squared/energy from motion
Laws of physics governing motion in its classical sense
Measure of stiffness of elastic material/defined as the ratio of stress (force per unit area) to strain/also 'tensile modulus' or 'elastic modulus'
Describes the motion of points, bodies (objects) and systems of bodies (groups of objects) without consideration of the causes of motion
