Flashcards in Forces and Acceleration Vocab Deck (10):
1

size of the force

magnitude

2

the resistance a surface puts on anything sliding over it

friction

3

sum of a force

Net

4

the combination of speed and direction

velocity

5

any change in velocity

acceleration

6

measurement of how fast an object is going

speed

7

plays a part in speed; determines how fast you go depending on if you are on a steeper or flatter surface steep=fast, not steep=slow

angle

8

working against something's momentum-slowing down (-5 m/s2)

negative acceleration

9

the quantity of a moving objects speed in a certain direction (velocity)

momentum

10

a mathematical rule expressed with symbols (acceleration= final speed - initial speed)
