Newton's first law:
An object will remain at rest or in a state of uniform motion unless it is acted on by a resultant force.
the pull of Earth's gravity.
Freefall on the moon is...
the tendency of a moving object to carry on moving.
For a body of constant mass its...
acceleration is directly proportional to the resultant force applied to it.
Force is the rate of change of...
The magnitude of the drag force depends on:
-the shape of the object
-the speed of the object
-the viscosity of the fluid
Terminal velocity is reached when...
air resistance is equal to the weight of the body.
