  3. Potential Energy
    Stored energy
  4. Series Circuit
    One pathway
  5. Parallel circuit
    Has multiple pathways
  6. Acceleration
    Change of velocity
  7. Velocity
    Speed and direction of an object.
  8. Force
    Push or pull.
  9. Inertia
    Tendency to do nothing or change.  Not wanting to move.
  10. Newton's 1st Law of Motion
    Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.
  11. Newton's 2nd Law of Motion
    Force = Mass x acceleration
  12. Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
  13. Momentum
    Force carried into a stop
  14. Renewable energy
    Never runs out.  Wind and sun.
  15. Non renewable energyc
    Energy that can run out.  Coal, oil, fossil fuels.
  16. Thermal energy
    The heat
  17. Insulator
    Material that doesn't lot allow electricity to pass through it.
  18. Equation of Acceleration
    Speed = Change of Speed / Time
  19. Equation of Speed
    Speed = Distance / Time
  20. Equation for Momentum
    Mass x speed or velocity
  21. Equation for Potential Energy
    • Potential = M x H x G
    • measured in Joules
  22. Equation for Force
    Force = Mass x Acceleration
