Projectile motion is a form of motion where a particle (called a projectile) is thrown obliquely near the
earth's surface, and it moves along a curved path under the action of gravity.
buoyancy /ˈbɔɪ.ənsi/ is an upward force exerted by a fluid that opposes the weight of an immersed
Hooke's law is a principle of physics that states that the force needed to extend or compress
a spring by some distance is proportional to that distance. That is,
The coefficient of restitution (COR) of two colliding objects is a fractional value representing the ratio of
speeds after and before an impact, taken along the line of the impact.
: the force between two bodies in contact that resists the initiation of sliding motion of one
over the other : the force required to cause one of the bodies to begin to move when they
are at rest —called also starting friction
Kinetic friction- the force that opposes relative motion between surfaces in contact. Kinetic friction is
friction applied to a moving object. This is the opposite of static friction which applies to a non-
Drag – is the air or fluid resistance of an object.
circular motion is a movement of an object along the circumference of a circle or rotation along a circular
Torque is a measure of how much a force acting on an object causes that object to
Elastic potential energy is Potential energy stored as a result of deformation of an
elastic object, such as the stretching of a spring.
Gravitational potential energy can be defined as the energy an object possesses because of its
position in a gravitational field commonly used for an object near the surface of the Earth where
the gravitational acceleration can be assumed to be constant at about 9.8 m/s2.
