c. control group
d. force

A force
a. causes all motion.
b. starts stationary objects moving.
c. stops moving objects.
d. is an interaction between two or more objects.
e. all of the above.

If the net force acting on an object is zero, then the object will remain at
rest or move in a straight line with a constant speed. This is
Newton's law of motion.
a. first
b. second
c. third
d. fourth

Adding or subtracting individual forces gives a combined force called

a(n) .
a. net force
b. acceleration
c. friction
d. machine

If two forces act on an object in the same direction, the net force is the
a. difference of the two forces.
b. sum of the two forces.
c. only one of the forces acts on the object.
d. neither force can affect the object.

When one object exerts a force on another, the second object exerts an
equal and opposite force on the first.
Which law matches the description?
a. Newton's 1st Law of Motion
b. Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
c. Newton's 2nd Law of Motion

This is a push, pull, or any action that has the ability to change motion.
a. Friction
b. Force
c. Newton's 1st Law of Motion

Which best describes the motion of the object recorded in data table?

b. It maintains a constant velocity.
c. It undergoes positive acceleration.
d. It undergoes negative acceleration.

The rate at which velocity changes over time is known as .

a. speed
b. acceleration
c. Newton

a. True
b. False

The acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force acting on it

and inversely proportional to its mass.

Which law matches the description?

a. Newton's 2nd Law of Motion
b. Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
c. Newton's 1st Law of Motion
An object acted upon by a net force will accelerate in the direction of the

This is Newton's law of motion.
a. first
b. second
c. third
d. fourth

Acceleration refers to .
a. increasing speed
b. decreasing speed
c. changing direction
d. all of the above

b. unbalanced; net force = 500 N; at terminal velocity
c. balanced; net force = 1500 N; moves to the left
d. balanced; no net force; at terminal velocity

The size or amount of a force is known as its .

a. net force
b. direction

d. constant speed

Motion is
a. anything with speed.
b. the change of position over time.
c. the way you move something.
d. an object with force.

A force that makes objects pull toward each other is called .

b. gravity
c. gear
d. lever
Which shows the formula for calculating speed?
a. Speed = time x position

A place or object to determine if an object is in motion is a .

a. speed
b. motion
c. reference point
d. force
1. air resistance
A force of friction produced when an object moves through the air.
2. balanced force
When the total force in opposite directions are equal in magnitude. For example, with a thrust of
15 N and a frictional force of 15 N, the body experiences balanced forces.
3. bearing
A direction measured in degrees clockwise from North. Due North is 000, due East is 090, due
South is 180 and due West is 270.
4. constant speed
When the speed of body does not change, eg the car was travelling at a constant speed of 30 m
5. direction
Information to give the direction of travel, or the direction of a force, for example, a speed of 20
m s-1 to the left, or a force of 15 N to the right.
6. force
A push or a pull. The unit of force is the newton (N).
7. mass
The amount of matter an object contains. Mass is measured in kilograms (kg) or grams (g).
8. rest
A stationary object which has a speed of zero. For example, the bus started from rest before it
reached a speed of 8 m s-1.
9. rocket
A rocket is usually a chemically fueled vehicle that exerts a large force while burning a small
volume of fuel. Generally used to launch objects high into the atmosphere or into space. Eg: the
rocket launch allowed the satellite to be put into orbit.
10. speed
The distance travelled in a fixed time period, usually one second.
11. stationary
Not moving.
12. thrust
A force used to move a body forwards or up, eg the rocket had a thrust of 10,000 N.
13. unbalanced forces
When the force in one direction is more than the force in the opposite direction. Eg: With a
thrust of 20 N and an opposing frictional force of 15 N, the object experienced an unbalanced
force of 5 N in the direction of the 20 N force. Sometimes called the 'resultant force' or 'net
14. Universe
All the energy and matter that exists.
15. weight
The force acting on an object due to the pull of gravity from a massive object like a planet. The
force acts towards the centre of the planet and is measured in newtons (N).
