Identify the following scientists.
Ancient Greek who incorrectly stated that heavy objects fall faster than lighter objects and a constant force was required to keep objects in motion.
Scientist who used experimentation to show that heavy and light objects will fall at the same rate (in the absence of air resistance) and that objects will continue to move forever if there are no forces acting on them.
Scientist who defined the terms mass and force and developed laws of motion.
Unscramble the following terms and Match them with the correct definition. Write the word and the letter that corresponds to the correct definition.
Identify the SI unit for each of the following.
Neil Armstrong was the first person to step foot on the Moon. NASA determined his mass, including space suit and equipment, while he was still on Earth and it was 120 kg. The acceleration due to gravity on the moon is about one sixth of that of Earth, or 1.6 m/s2.

The downward arrow represent the force of _____________.
What is the net force on the skydiver?
Are the forces balanced or unbalanced?
Is the skydiver speeding up, slowing down,
or traveling at a constant velocity?
Since the upward force is equal to the
downward force the skydiver is
at ____________ velocity.
Complete the following by filling in the blanks with the appropriate word or words.
____(1)______ cause objects to accelerate. Forces can result in an object ______(2)______, ______(3)______, or changing _____(4)_________.
What is the net force acting on Santa’s bicycle?
Are the forces acting on Santa and his bicycle balanced or unbalanced?

The image below shows a basketball at various points as it travels through the air. Ignore effects of air resistance.
The motion of the ball through the air is an example of ______________ motion.
The curved path of the ball is caused by a combination of the downward force of __________ and the initial horizontal velocity.
Because there are no horizontal forces acting on the ball the horizontal velocity increase/decreases/stays the same.
Draw a force diagram for the basketball while it is traveling through the air.
A baseball is thrown straight up into the air. At the very top of its trajectory,…
What is the speed of the baseball?
What is the acceleration of the baseball?
Draw a force diagram for the ball at the top of
Answer the following questions.
Friction always acts in the opposite/same direction as the object’s motion.
It takes more force to get an object moving than the keep it moving because ___________ friction is always greater than __________ friction.
Air resistance is an example of ___________ friction.
What type of friction would act on a skateboard?
Two skateboarders face each other on identical skateboards. Skateboarder A pushes on skateboarder B with a force of 30 N to the right. According to Newton’s third law, with what force does skateboarder B push on skateboarder A?
What is the acceleration of skateboarder B if her mass is 60 kg?
Skateboarder A has a mass of 75 kg. His acceleration will be greater than/less than/equal to that of Skateboarder B.
