inertia
_______ is the property of an object that leads it to resist any change in motion
Newton's second law
Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass, the greater the mass, the more force is required to accelerate the object.
Newton's Third Law
All forces come in pairs. The two forces in a pair act on different objects and are equal in strength and opposite in direction.
balanced forces
forces that are equal in size but opposite in direction
unbalanced forces
forces that cause a change in the motion of an object
Example of Newton's First Law
A wad of paper is on the back of a truck. The truck moves forward and the wad of paper falls off the truck.
Example of Newton's Third Law
A ball is dropped and bounces after hitting the ground.
Example of Newton's Second Law
A paper cup and a glass cup are pushed with the same amount of force applied. The glass cup stops sooner.
