Unbalanced forces
In physics, a force is any interaction that, when unopposed, will change the motion of an object
Got it
Contact forces
In physics, a contact force, is a force that acts at the point of contact between two objects, in contrast to body forces
Got it
inclined planes
An inclined plane, also known as a ramp, is a flat supporting surface tilted at an angle, with one end higher than the other, used as an aid for raising or lowering a load
Got it
Inertia
Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion; this includes changes to its speed, direction or state of rest

free-body diagram
In physics a free body diagram is a graphical illustration used to visualize the applied forces, movements, and resulting reactions on a body in a steady state condition
Free fall
In Newtonian physics, free fall is any motion of a body where gravity is the only force acting upon it
terminal velocity
Terminal velocity is the highest velocity attainable by an object as it falls through a fluid
Sliding friction
Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other
speed
In everyday use and in kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity ; it is thus a scalar quantity
