The amount of matter in an object is called its ________. a. mass b. balance c. force d. weight _______3. The greater the mass of an object, a. the less force it can exert. b. the more space it takes up. c. the more balanced it is. d. the greater the inertia. _______4. The force of gravity of a person or object at the surface of a planet is known as? a. mass b. air resistance c. inertia d. weight _______5.

There was grease on the dashboard b. The object had inertia. c. A supernatural force took over. d. Air resistance made the book move backward. _______6. The law of universal gravitation states that a. two objects always exert gravitational forces on each other. b. the force of gravity depends on the mass and the distance between the two objects. c. all objects fall at different rates on earth. d. both a and b. _______7. A force that one surface exerts on another when the two rub against each other is called ________. a. gravity b. acceleration c. inertia d. friction _______8. According to Newton's Third Law of Motion, when a hammer strikes and exerts a force on a nail, the nail a. creates a balanced force. b. disappears into the wood. c. moves at a constant speed. d. exerts and equal and opposite force back on the hammer. _______9. Pick the best example of Newton's Third Law in action. a. A rocket taking off from earth which pushes gasses in one direction and the rocket in the other. b. A rocket sitting on the ground preparing for take-off but it needs an outside force to overcome its inertia of a non-moving object. c. A rocket that is accelerating through space and exerts a great amount of force because its mass and acceleration is so large. d. Both b and c. _______10.
