1

What is F?

Resultant force.

2

Non- zero resultant force produces what?

Acceleration.

3

What it the equation for resultant force?

F = ma.
m x a = F

4

What is the equation for acceleration?

a = F/m
F divided by m = a.

10

If you push an object it will do what?

Push back against you, just as hard.

11

As soon as you stop pushing the object what does it do?

The object stops pushing.

12

If the forces are equal.
How does anything go anywhere?

Two forces are acting on different objects.

13

Same sized force but in...

Opposite directions.

14

When a object pushes on another object what is this called?

Action force.

15

When the object feels a equal and opposite force from the other object what is this called?

Reaction force.
