Science terms

  1. Define acceleration
    is a change in velocity. Can be a change in a speed and/or direction
  2. Define free fall
    when only gravity is acting on the object
  3. Define newton
    is the amount of force needed to move a 1kg mass object at an acceleration of 1 m/s2.
  4. define equilibrium
    a state in which opposing forces or influences are balances
  5. define inversely proportional
    means that if one value increases the other value will decrease, assuming everything else stays the same
  6. define fluid friction
    created when an object moves through a fluid
  7. define sliding friction
    the type of friction created when 2 solid surfaces slide over each other
  8. rolling friction
    friction created when an object rolls over a surface. It opposes motion less than sliding friction
