  1. measure of the force of gravity on an object
    weight
  2. force that keeps two objects that are touching from easily sliding past each other
    friction
  3. any push or pull
    force
  4. change in the speed or direction of an object's motion
    acceleration
  5. force that pulls all objects toward each other
    gravity
  6. pushing a grocery cart is an example of a _________
    force
  7. riding your bike down a hill, slowing down, and turning are examples of ___________
    acceleration
  8. motion is stopped and started by _________
    forces
  9. How would the weight of an object change on the moon?
    It would weigh less because the moon has less mass, and therefore less gravity
  10. What happens to the speed of an object if the force applied to the object increases?
    The object moves faster.
  11. If friction did not exist, could you stop a bike that you were riding? Why or why not?
    No, because the bike would keep slipping without any friction.
  12. Why would you weigh less on Mars than on Earth?
    Mars has a smaller mass than Earth, so there is less gravity there.
