- Forces
- forces are measured in newtons(N)
- Resultant Forces
- Resultant forces is the overall force on a point or object
- Balanced and Unbalanced Forces
- Same size forces = balanced forces = object DOESN'T change
- NOT same size forces = unbalanced forces = objects WILL change
- Balanced forces has a resultant force of ZERO (total forces)
- Unbalanced forces DOESN'T have a resultant force of zero

- Forces only CHANGE what something is already doing

- Weight & Mass
- Weight
- measured in Newtons
- changes when gravity changes
- The force that gravity exerts on an object
- can be measured with a calibrated spring balance or newtonmeter

- Mass
- The amount of "matter" in an object
- The mass never changes
- Measured in kilograms (KG)

- Weight
- Distance, Displacement, Speed and Velocity
- Speed
- Speed is a measure of how fast you are going
- speed is a scalar
- Distance travelled (m) = speed (m/s) x time(s)
- Speed = distance/time
- Speed is measured in m/s

- Velocity
- Velocity is a vector
- Velocity is the speed something is travelling in a certain direction
- Velocity = Distance/Time

- Distance
- Distance is just how far an object has moved
- distance is a scalar

- Displacement
- displacement is a vector
- displacement measures the distance and direction in a straight line from an object's starting point to its finishing point

- Speed
- Acceleration
- Acceleration of an object is the change in its velocity per second
- Acceleration (m/s*2) = change in velocity/time taken
- to find the change in velocity you need to do Final velocity - Initial velocity/time taken
- Deceleration is a negative acceleration (when something slows down)
- Acceleration is a vector quantity because velocity is a vector

- Newton's Second Laws
- Force = Mass x Acceleration
- Greater force = Greater Acceleration (Proportional relationship)
- Greater mass = Less Acceleration (Inversely proportional relationship)
