  1. States that every action force creates a reaction force that is equal in strength and opposite in direction
    Newton's third law 
  2. The mass of an object multiplied by its speed or velocity 
    Momentum 
  3. A change in momentum created by a force exerted over time 
    Impulse 
  4. Total momentum in a system of interacting objects cannot change as long all forces act only between the objects in the system 
    Law of conservation of momentum 
  5. Is a quantity that measures the ability to cause change 
    Energy 
  6. Unit of measurement for energy kgm2/s2
    Joule 
  7. The transfer of energy that results from applying a force over a distance 
    Work 
  8. Energy due to position (something is capable of becoming active)
    Potential energy 
  9. Energy of motion (objects that are moving also have the ability to cause change)
    Kinetic energy 
  10. Idea that energy converts from one form into another without a change in the total amount 
    Law of conservation of energy 
  11. Occurs when two or more objects hot each other
    Collision 
  12. Object bounce off each other with no loss in the total kinetic energy of the system
    Elastic collision 
  13. Objects change shape or stick together, and the total kinetic energy of the system decreases
    Inelastic collision
  14. A line is the ratio of the rise (vertical change) to the run (horizontal change)
    Slope
