Term
 Velocity
Definition
 The speed and direction of an object
Term
 Newton's First Law of Motion
Definition
 An object not being subjected by a force will continue to move at a constant speed in a straight line or stay at rest.
Term
 Balanced Force
Definition
 Having a net force of zero
Term
 Gravitational Force
Definition
 Everything on or around the Earth is pulled towards Earth's center.
Term
 The cause of an acceleration
Definition
 Unbalanced force
Term
 speed
