What are the untis for the equation: Speed = Distance/Time
Speed(m/s) Distance(m) Time(s)

What's the difference between speed and velocity?
The speed of an object is just how fast it's going - the direction isn't important. Whereas velocity describes both speed and direction.
2 of 6
What is an interaction pair?
When an object exerts a force on another object and it experiences a force in return = interaction pair or partner forces. It is when the forces are equal. The forces in interaction pairs are always equal in size and opposite in direction.

Explain the 3 types of friction.
1) Lets you walk around, you exert a backward force on the floor which exerts a forward force on you walking. 2) You can reduce sliding friction and gripping friction by putting a lubricant between the surfaces. 3) Resistance or 'drag' eg. air

If an object is moving at a steady speed what must its forces be?
They must be balanced because unless an object is changing speed or direction, the resultant (overall) force is zero.

Name an equation including kinetic energy and one including GPE
KE(J) = 1/2 x mass(kg) x velocity squared ([m/s] squared) and change in GPE(J) = weight(N) x vertical height difference (m)
