Flashcards in Science Chapter 8 Deck (18)
A push or pull exerted on an object.
A unit of measure that equals the force required to accelerate 1 kilogram of mass at 1 meter per second per second.
The overall force on an object when all the individual forces acting on it are added together.
The force that two surfaces exert on each other when they rub against each other
Friction that acts between objects that are not moving.
Friction that occurs as an object moves through a fluid.
Friction that occurs when an object rolls over a surface.
The attractive force between objects; the force that moves objects downhill.
A measure of how much matter is in an object.
A measure of the force of gravity acting on an object.
The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion.
The product of an object’s mass and velocity.
Law of conservation of momentum
The rule that in the absence of outside forces the total momentum of objects that interact does not change.
The motion of a falling object when the only force acting on it is gravity.
Any object that orbits around another object in space.
A force that causes an object to move in a circle.
The upward force exerted by a fluid on a submerged object.
