  1. Measures the distance and direction from the starting point.
    Displacement
  2. Distance divided by time
    Speed
  3. A push or pull that causes an object to accelerate
    Force
  4. When a system becomes stable or balanced
    equilibrium
  5. The force that opposes motion between two surfaces that are in contact with each other.
    Friction
  6. The change in position of an object
    Motion
  7. Forces that are equal but opposite in direction; when they act on an object, they cancel each other out and not change occurs in the object's motion.
    Balances forces
  8. Describes unequal forces acting on an object; results in a change in the object's motion in the direction of the larger force.
    Unbalanced forces
  9. Speed and direction of a moving object
    velocity
  10. Amount of matter in something; measured in grams
    Mass
  11. Change in velocity over time; always produced by a force.
    Acceleration
  12. An object's tendency to resist change in motion
    Inertia
  13. A measure of the force of gravity on an object; Weight = mass x acceleration to gravity.
    Weight
  14. Force of attraction between any two objects.
    Gravity
