Study Guide


Force is applied to change an object's speed or direction of motion.

Kinetic Energy

Kinetic energy is the energy posessed by a moving object. Potential energy is stored energy in a stationary object based on its location, position, shape, or state.


Power is the rate at which work is performed or work per unit time: \(P = {w \over t}\) and is measured in watts (W).


Weight is a force that describes the attraction of gravity on an object. Force is measured in newtons (N) with 1 N being the force required to impart an acceleration of 1 m/s2 to a mass of 1 kg.
