    Motion & Design Vocabulary

    Week 1

    • Friction-

    • A force that resists movement between two objects that are touching.

    • Air resistance

    • -The force of friction on a vehicle as it moves through the air.

    • Drag

    • -the force that opposes the forward motion of a vehicle.

    • Gravity

    • -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.

    • Force

    • -A push or a pull. A force is also needed to make a moving object slow down, change direction or stop moving.

    • Work

    •  - Is only done when a force makes something move.

    • Energy

    • -Ability to do work.

    Week 2

    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.
    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).

    Week 3

    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.
    Matter
    The material or substance that things are made of (electrons, neutrons, and protons)
    Mass
    The amount of matter in an object.
    Weight
    The amount of gravitational force on the matter of an object.

    Week 4

    Distance
    How far something moves.
    Speed
    A measure of how fast something is moving. How far an object can go in a certain amount of time. Distance divided by time.
    Momentum
    the rate of acceleration. Mass x Velocity = Momentum.
    Motion
    Change in the position of an object.

    Week 5

    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.
    Tension
    a force exerted by a stretched object, such as a spring.
    Revolutions
    the spinning of an object. One complete spin is equal to one revolution.
    Inclined Plane
    a ramp is an example of this.

    Week 6

    Thermal Energy
    is energy in the form of heat.
    Conduction
    The transfer of heat or electrical energy by physical touching of two objects.
    Convection
    The transfer of heat by the movement of a liquid or gas.
    Radiation
    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.)
