linear speed - rate of motion
Which of the following describe "a change in factor" that would decrease the time it takes to travel a specific linear distance?
an increase in the body's linear speed (s)
a decrease in the distance to be travelled (l)
Which of the following is/are examples of situations where the type of analysis used to study the activity is based on Newton's 1st law (i.e., no acceleration)?
movements that involve no change in motion
for example, ice skating

lift force principle
Lift can occur in which direction?
perpendicular (upward or downward lift)
