Velocity: slope of a straight line connecting the final/initial points. Sig. Digits: +/- (smallest # of decimal places of any term) x/ (digits in final answer = # w/ the least digits). Dynamics: study of motion and physical concepts (force & mass). Kinematics : part of dynamics that describes motion w/o cause. Vector: magnitude and direction. Scalar: only magnitude. Newton’s 1 st Law: an object moves with a velocity that is constant in magnitude & direction, unless acted on by a NON-ZERO net force. --“objects move b/c the opposite force is exherted on a diff. object then the one being moved”. Inertia : tendency of an object to continue in its original state of motion; it’s a property of matter to resist changes in motion. Mass : measure of an objects resistance to changes in its motion due to a force (kg) *greater the mass, the less it accelerates under a force, greater its inertia. Newton’s 2 nd Law: accel. of an object is directly proportional to the net force acting on it, inversely prop to its mass. Gravitational Force : mutual force of attraction btwn any 2 objects in the universe (weakest of all fundamental forces). Newton’s Law of Gravitation : every particle attracts every other particle w/ a force that is directly proportional to the product of the masses, inversely prop. to the square of the distance between them. Newton’s 3 rd Law: Forces in nature come in pairs. Force exerted by object 1 on 2 is equal to the opposite force exerted by object 2 on 1. (action – reaction). Tension: magnitude of the force exerted along a rope – it’s the same at all points on the rope....
