Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
feet on scale
Weight (Mass * Acceleration due to gravity) is the measure of the force of gravity upon an object.
(i.e. you weigh less on the moon, but your mass is the same.)
slide
Friction is the force that one surface exerts upon another.
(i.e. sliding on gravel slows you down versus sliding on ice, rolling on wheels, a fluid water slide, or static: not moving).

Its force always acts in the opposite direction to motion

Friction's strength depends on
  1. ​the type of surface (like rough, smooth, sticky, slimy, etc)
  2. How hard they are pressed together
4 types:

fluid friction: liquids and gasses
sliding: when one or both surfaces are moving or rubbing together
rolling: when one or both surfaces are spinning
static: when neither surface is moving
Graavity Well
The law of universal gravitation states that the force of gravity acts between all objects (matter) in the universe (everything, everywhere).

spacewalk
Gravity is the force that pulls objects towards more massive things (like Earth).

Gravity's strength varies by
  1. Distance: closer is stronger
  2. Mass: more mass has more gravity.
On Earth's surface, things in freefall accelerate 9.8 m/s/s unless it is slowed by air resistance.
http://www.etorgerson.net/Images3/asteroid-hit-earth.jpg
Newton’s Second Law of Motion states that the net force of an object is equal to the net product of it acceleration and its mass.
(i.e. a speeding car has more impact than a blowing leaf crashing into a wall)

(Force = Mass * Acceleration)
freebodydiagram
Free Body Diagrams: a standard diagram that shows all of the forces acting on an object.
The object is a box at the center with arrows pointing towards it from the direction of each force.
einstein
Scientist

Albert Einstein was a mathematical genius who related time, space, gravity, and mass in his theories of special relativity (Time and space) and general relativity (gravity, space, and mass.) He also defined the speed of light as a universal speed limit and related energy and matter with e=mc2.

pugh
Technology

Pugh Charts: are used to check if a design meets the specifications (requirements) of a design.
Usually used to compare designs (columns) against each specification (rows.)
