What is Newton's Third Law?
200
a change in position or location
What is motion?
200
True or False: Force can change the speed of an object.
What is true?
200
a spinning top demonstrates this type of motion
What is circular motion?
200
stored energy
What is potential energy?
200

What is Newton's First Law?
300
the amount of material in an object
What is mass?
300
True or False: Force cannot change the direction in which an object travels.
What is false?
300
a runner running in a straight line demonstrates this type of motion
What is linear motion?
300
energy of motion
What is kinetic energy?
300
A force can change the motion of an object. However, the greater the mass, the greater the force needed to accelerate the object. Force equals Mass times Acceleration.
