Balanced Forces A rate of motion determined by dividing the total distance traveled by the total travel time Forces that are equal in size and opposite in direction Force exerted by every object in the universe on every other object. Constant Speed The rate of change in velocity (a change in direction or a change in speed) A rate of motion determined by dividing the total distance traveled by the total travel time Speed that doesnt change Force Speed that doesnt change Forces that are equal in size and opposite in direction A push or a pull one body exerts on another Gravity Force exerted by every object in the universe on every other object A rate of motion determined by dividing the total distance traveled by the total travel time Forces that are equal in size and opposite in direction Inertia The rate of motion at a given instant at time, such as that given on a car's speedometer The rate of motion, or rate at which a body changes position The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. Instantaneous Speed The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. The rate of motion, or rate at which a body changes position The rate of motion at a given instant at time, such as that given on a car's speedometer Net Force The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. The sum of forces on an object when unbalanced forces are applied to it. The measure of the force of gravity on an object Speed The sum of forces on an object when unbalanced forces are applied to it. The speed and distance of a moving body, such as a storm or a basketball thrown across a court The rate of motion, or the rate at which a body changes position Velocity The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. The measure of the force of gravity on an object The speed and distance of a moving body, such as a storm or a basketball thrown across a court Weight The measure of the force of gravity on an object The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. The rate of motion at a given instant at time, such as that given on a car's speedometer
