Newton

Front

The unit scientists use to measure force.

Back

Static Friction

Front

When an object is at rest, this is the force that opposes (acts against) future motion.

Back

Reaction force

Front

The paired force that "pushes/pulls back" on the action force

Back

Inertia

Front

The principle which states that an object in motion will stay in motion unless stopped by an outside force, and that an object at rest will stay at rest unless moved by an outside force.

Back

Dynamic Friction

Front

When an object is moving, this is is the force that acts against the direction of an object's motion and slows/stops it.

Back

Component

Front

One part of a group of objects that, together, form a complete unit

Back

Contact force

Front

The force that exists between two objects that are touching one another.

Back

Net force

Front

The combination of all forces acting on an object, represented by a single arrow

Back

Action force

Front

The force that begins an interaction between two components

Back

Force at a distance

Front

Forces that exist between two objects that are not touching one another. Examples include: gravitational forces, electrical forces, magnetic forces

Back

System

Front

A collection of components that interact with each other

Back

Force

Front

A push or a pull in a specific direction

Back

Paired forces

Front

Action and reaction forces. For every force that acts on a component, the component reacts with an equal force, of the same kind, in the opposite direction.

Back

Magnitude

Front

The size, or amount of something, for instance the strength of a force.

Back

Interaction

Front

When two objects affect each other in some way
