## Study Notes

### Forces and Their Effects

• Force is an influence that causes an object to undergo a specific change in motion or shape.
• Gravity and friction are examples of forces that affect motion between objects.
• An unbalanced force acts to change the motion of an object, while balanced forces do not result in a change.

### Newton's Laws of Motion

• Newton's first law of motion states: An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.
• This law emphasizes that motion will not change unless forces interact.

### Collisions

• When two objects with the same mass collide, momentum is transferred, and they may change their velocity according to elastic or inelastic collision rules.

### Rest and Motion

• An object at rest remains in that state unless an unbalanced force is applied.
• The concept of inertia describes the tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion.

### Effect of Gravity and Distance

• The gravitational force between two objects decreases as the distance between them increases, indicating an inverse relationship.

### Friction

• Friction is a force that opposes the movement between two surfaces in contact, enabling resistance against sliding.

### Key Terms

• Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist changes in motion.
• Gravity is an attractive force that acts between two masses, influencing their motion based on distance and mass.
