  1. 1. Space objects will move forever once set in motion.
    2. Friction and air resistance are the net forces that usually slow objects.
  2. the force exerted by a fluid depends on the height of fluid above it; the deeper the object, the more pressure.
  3. force is a __________ quantity.
  4. µ depends on the _________ of surfaces in contact
  5. force of surface on object
    1.Perpendicular to surface
    2. Acts opposite to gravity
  6. long-ranged but weak; attractive or repulsive force between objects carrying electrical charge.
  7. your weight in water
    (it's less than your weight in air because FB pushes upward)
  8. inertia is a ___________ quantity
  9. an object's terminal velocity depends on the object's _____________.
  10. mass is ____________; weight depends upon the ___________.
  11. SI units for inertia are _____
  12. objects don't accelerate downward forever - at some point their velocity becomes _____________.
  13. Objects behave as particles

  15. If an object's weight > buoyant force, then it ________.
  16. acts when the object is in motion; f is constant while in motion
  17. a drawing showing all forces on an object
  18. a force pushing against a specific area of a surface. (force/area)
  19. a human's terminal velocity is about 150 mph; an ant's is so low that it can fall far and not get hurt.
  20. a push or pull
  21. resistance to motion
  22. __________ is a measure of inertia
  23. force on a rope
  24. *Set the x-axis along the incline and y-axis perpendicular to the incline
    *Normal points along y-axis
    *Weight points straight down (break into components)
    *Friction acts along x-axis
  25. weight equation
  26. an object at rest stays at rest and object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by a net external force.
  27. ________ scales display the normal force; they are they are the same when a=0.
  28. The µs and µk are _____________ of the area of contact
  29. objects accelerating ___________ seem lighter.
  30. When you apply a force to a confined fluid (a closed system), that pressure is applied equally to all parts of the fluid
  31. 1. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction
    2. Forces always occur in pairs
    3. Action and reaction forces must occur on 2 separate objects
    4. Equal in magnitude but opposite in direction
  32. acts to keep the object from moving; if Fa increases, so does ƒs
  33. the gravitational pull on an object; always points straight down
  34. very short range and very weak; responsible for radioactive decay.
  35. the tendency of an object to continue in its original motion (or resist change in motion)
  36. When the upward Fair resistance = the downward Fgravity, the Fnet = ____.
  37. strongest force; attractive force that holds the nuclei of atoms together.
  38. F=ma
    If a constant force is applied to an object,
    it will ACCELERATE
  39. describes the relationship between the motion of objects in our everyday world and the forces acting on them
  40. The direction of the f is opposite the direction of motion
    Friction is proportional to the normal n
    f = µ n (fyi 0 < μ < 1)
  41. constant speed
  42. If an object's weight < buoyant force, then it _______.
  43. force units are measured in ____________
  44. the sum of all forces on an object
  45. *The object is in static equilibrium
    *The upward buoyant force is balanced by the downward force of gravity
  46. touching
