  1. The amount of matter an object has; a measure of an object's inertia; measured in g or kg 
    Mass 
  2. Is the distance it travels divided by time it takes 
    Speed 
  3. Is speed with direction over rate of motion and the direction 
    Velocity 
  4. Is a push or pull, or any action that has the ability to change motion 
    Force 
  5. Property of an object that resists change in its motion 
    Inertia 
  6. The rate of change in velocity; rate at which your speed increases
    Acceleration 
  7. It is accelerating due to the force of gravity and no other forces are acting on it 
    Free fall 
  8. The speed at a pacific time 
    Instantaneous speed 
  9. The maximum speed reached by an object in free fall, the speed at which the forces of gravity and air resistance are equal
    Terminal speed 
  10. Whenever one object exerts a force on another, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first 
    Newton's third law 
  11. A speed that does not change 
    Constant speed 
  12. The action of moving or of changing place or position 
    Motion 
  13. The force of attraction on an object on another
    Gravity
  14. The total distance traveled divided by the total time elapsed 
    Average speed 
  15. Two equal forces are applied on an object pushing both ways 
    Balanced force 
  16. Forces that produce a non zero net force, which changes an object's motion
    Unbalanced force
