Radiant Energy

Front

_________ energy is also known as solar energy (sunlight).

Back

Balanced Forces

Front

Forces that are opposite in direction but equal in strength. Results in no movement.

Back

Potential Energy

Front

Stored energy or energy at rest. Increases with height and mass.

Back

Gravity

Front

_________ is a pull (not a push). All objects have __________. Objects with greater mass have greater _________.

Back

Radiation

Front

Process where energy is tranferred in waves or rays.

Back

Newton's Third Law

Front

AKA the Law of Action and Reaction For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Back

Convection

Front

Process where energy is transferred by flow and circulation.

Back

Friction

Front

The force that resists movement between 2 objects that are touching.

Back

Mass

Front

the amount or quantity of matter in an object

Back

Newton's First Law

Front

AKA the Law of Inertia Objects in motion stay in motion and objects at rest stay at rest unless acted upon by a force.

Back

Energy Transformations

Front

The process of energy changing easily from one form to another. Example: Eating food (chemical) allows us to move our bodies (kinetic) until we begin to sweat (thermal).

Back

Work

Front

When a force is applied to an object and the object moves you have done ___________ (only if the object moves).

Back

Newton's Second Law

Front

AKA the Law of Force If enough force is applied to an object the object will move. Force = mass x acceleration or F= m x a

Back

Velocity

Front

The speed and direction of an object. Example: I was traveling 70 mph east in my car.

Back

Motion

Front

A change in an object's position (it moved).

Back

Kinetic Energy

Front

Energy in motion. Increases with speed and mass.

Back

Force

Front

A push or a pull.

Back

Thermal Energy

Front

_________ energy is also known as heat.

Back

position

Front

the place where a person or thing is; location [The ship radioed its position.]

Back

Acceleration

Front

A change in velocity (change in speed and/or direction).

Back

Chemical Energy

Front

_________ energy is found in the food we eat and in fossil fuels that we burn.

Back

Frame of reference

Front

The object an observer uses to detect motion.

Back

Unbalanced Forces

Front

Forces that are opposite in direction and unequal in strength. Results in movement in the direction of the greater force.

Back

Conduction

Front

Process where energy is transferred by the movement and colliding of molecules.

Back

Speed

Front

How fast an object is traveling. ________ = distance divided by time

Back
