Name_______________________________ Date_______________________ Period____________ Chapter 12 Forces Quest Directions: Using your packet/textbook, complete the following “quest” questions! Chp 12-1 1. Who is Isaac Newton? 2. What is Newton’s first law of motion? 3. What does it take to change the motion of an object? Give an example. 4. What is inertia? 5. What measurement determines the amount of inertia an object has? 6. According to the first law, why are seat belts needed in cars? 7. Why are car seats placed backwards and how does this make it safer for the baby? 8. What is Newton’s Second law of motion? 9. What is the formula for the second law? (include SI units) 10. What is a newton (N)? 11. Complete the statement; If the mass stays the same, and the force INCREASES then +/acceleration will _____________. So in order to change the motion of a massive object, a ___________ force is needed. 12. Complete the state; If the force stays the same, and the mass INCREASES then acceleration will _____________. So in order to INCREASE the motion without changing force, the mass must ___________. 1 Name_______________________________ Date_______________________ Period____________ Chp 12-2 Gravity 1.
