- | * Force is in newtons or pounds. One newton = 1kg * m / s² (the force needed to accelerate 1kg at 1 m/s²) | + | * **Force** is in newtons or pounds. One newton = 1kg * m / s² (the force needed to accelerate 1kg at 1 m/s²) |

* f = ma | * f = ma | ||

- | * Momentum is p | + | * **Momentum** is p |

* p = mv | * p = mv | ||

- | * energy = work (joules) = force * distance | + | * **energy or work** (joules) = force * distance |

* J = F*d = applying 1 newton for 1 meter (units of kg * m²/s²) | * J = F*d = applying 1 newton for 1 meter (units of kg * m²/s²) | ||

* F = J/d | * F = J/d | ||

- | * power = work/time (joules/sec or watts) | + | * Work is positive if it is applied in the same direction as movement |

+ | * No (net) work is done moving an object horizontally some set distance (unless you overcome friction) - it does not gain or lose potential energy, or have increased kinetic energy at the conclusion | ||

+ | * **power** = work/time (joules/sec or watts) | ||

Fnet = Δp / Δt (since p = mv and Δv/Δtime = acceleration) | Fnet = Δp / Δt (since p = mv and Δv/Δtime = acceleration) |
