Used to reduce the friction between two surfaces in contact

3

Weight

-pull of the Earth on an object
-measured in Newtons
-force
-direction
-gets smaller as it rises

4

How do you turn weight into mass

x10

5

Mass

-amount of matter in an object
-measured in g/kg
-no direction
-remains the same

6

Mass-> weight

/10

7

Extension of an electric body (Spring) is directly proportional to the force causing the extension

8

Causes an object to move
