Motion & Design Vocabulary
A force that resists movement between two objects that are
-The force of friction on a vehicle as it moves through the air.
-the force that opposes the forward motion of a vehicle.
-A force of attraction between any two masses. The strength of
this force is dependent on the mass of each object and their
distance from one another.
-A push or a pull. A force is also needed to make a moving object
slow down, change direction or stop moving.
Is only done when a force makes something move.
-Ability to do work.
- Laws of Motion
- Three laws formulated by Sir Isaac Newton, the describe how objects move in relation to the forces acting on them.
- Inertia (Newton’s First Law)
- The tendency of a moving object to stay in motion or a resting object to stay still is inertia.
- Acceleration (Newton’s Second Law)
- Acceleration is the rate at which an object changes its velocity. An object is accelerating if it is changing its velocity.
- The rate of change of position. Speed + Direction.
- Action and Reaction (Newton’s Third Law)
- Forces are found in pairs: for every action (force) there is an opposite and equal reaction (force).
- Conservation of Mass
- The principle that mass cannot be created or destroyed. (ie. 10 grams of water plus 5 grams of salt equal 15 grams of salt water solution).
- Potential Energy
- Stored energy that can be released to become other forms of energy.
- Kinetic Energy
- A type of energy associated with motion.
- Unbalanced Forces
- Initiate (causes) movement and influences movement.
- Balanced Forces
- When an object is at rest it is balanced.
- The material or substance that things are made of (electrons, neutrons, and protons)
- The amount of matter in an object.
- The amount of gravitational force on the matter of an object.
- How far something moves.
- A measure of how fast something is moving. How far an object can go in a certain amount of time. Distance divided by time.
- the rate of acceleration. Mass x Velocity = Momentum.
- Change in the position of an object.
- Technological Design
- The process of identifying a problem, creating a solution, evaluating the solution by testing, and then refining the design to improve performance is the essence of technological design. Plan, build, test, evaluate.
- a force exerted by a stretched object, such as a spring.
- the spinning of an object. One complete spin is equal to one revolution.
- Inclined Plane
- a ramp is an example of this.
- Thermal Energy
- is energy in the form of heat.
- The transfer of heat or electrical energy by physical touching of two objects.
- The transfer of heat by the movement of a liquid or gas.
- The process in which energy is emitted by particles or waves
- Wind Energy
- the process by which wind is used to generate electricity (ie. windmills)
- Solar Energy
- energy harnessed from the sun’s radiation.
- Physical Change
- A usually reversible change in the physical properties of a substance such as size or shape: (ex. Water freezing into ice)
- Chemical Change
- An irreversible change in the properties or composition of a substance resulting in a new substance. (ex. Wood burning or iron rusting.)
