FORCE Force = a push or pull Gravity is a force that attracts all objects toward each other(law of universal gravitation) The strength of the force of gravity between two objects depends on: The masses of the objects The distance between the objects MASS AND WEIGHT Mass = the amount of matter in an object Weight = the force of gravity on an object An object’s weight can change based on the amount of gravity where it is located DISTANCE The force of gravity decreases rapidly as the distance between two objects increases. INERTIA The tendency of an object to resist a change in motion An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted on by a force.
