definición

The state in which one object’s distance from another is changing.

Reference Point
empezar lección
A place or object used for comparison to determine if an object is in motion.

the measurement from one place to another.

The distance an object travels per unit of time.

Average Speed
empezar lección
The overall rate of speed at which an object moves; calculated by dividing the total distance an object travels by the total time.

Speed in a given direction.

The steepness of a line on a graph, equal to its vertical change divided by its horizontal change.

Acceleration
empezar lección
The rate at which velocity changes.

A push or pull exerted on an object.

A unit of measure that equals the force required to accelerate 1 kilogram of mass at 1 meter per second per second.

The overall force on an object when all the individual forces acting on it are added together.

Unbalanced Forces
empezar lección
Forces that produce a nonzero net force, which changes an object’s motion.

Balanced Forces
empezar lección
Equal forces acting on an object in opposite directions.

The force that one surface exerts on another when the two surfaces rub against each other.

Static Friction
empezar lección
Friction that acts on objects that are not moving.

Sliding Friction
empezar lección
Friction that occurs when one solid surface slides over another.

Rolling Friction
empezar lección
Friction that occurs when an object rolls over a surface.

Fluid Friction
empezar lección
Friction that occurs as an object moves through a fluid.

The force that pulls objects towards each other and to earth.

The amount of matter in an object.

Air Resistance
empezar lección
The fluid friction experienced by objects falling through the air.

The tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion.

The product of an object’s mass and velocity.

Force exerted on an object that causes it to move.

Input Force
empezar lección
The force exerted on a machine.

Output Force
empezar lección
The force exerted on an object by a machine.

Ideal Mechanical Advantage
empezar lección
a machine with an efficiency of 100%

Actual (real) Mechanical Advantage
empezar lección
the measurement of mechanical advantage of a machine. It’s always less than 100% because of work wasted due to friction.

The percentage of the input work that is converted to output work.

Newton’s First Law of Motion
empezar lección
An object at rest will remain at rest, and an object moving at a constant velocity will continue moving at a constant velocity, unless it is acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Newton’s Second Law of Motion
empezar lección
Acceleration depends on the object’s mass and on the net force acting on the object.

the ability to cause changes in matter. It changes form and is never used up.

Electromagnetic Waves
empezar lección
waves that carry electric or magnetic energy through outer space.

Constant Speed
empezar lección
an object’s speed does not increase or decrease, it stays the same.

Variable Motion
empezar lección
different distances traveled in equal times.

Kinetic Energy
empezar lección
The energy of an object in motion.

Potential Energy
empezar lección
The energy that’s stored in a stationary object.

Electrical Circuit
empezar lección
A path that electrons from a voltage or current flow.

Incline Plane
empezar lección
a simple machine that has a sloped, flat surface.

a simple machine that consists of a grooved wheel with a rope or cable wrapped around it.

A simple machine that consists of a rigid bar that pivots about a fixed point.

Wheel and Axle
empezar lección
A simple machine that consists of two attached circular objects that rotate around a common axis.

Compound Machine
empezar lección
A device that combines 2 or more simple machines.
