Grade 9 Forces and Motion
Newton's Second Law of Motion explains the relationship between
  1. mass, force, and velocity
  2. mass, force, and acceleration
  3. mass, acceleration, and static force
  4. velocity, force, and air resistance
Grade 9 Forces and Motion
The weight of an object
  1. stays the same wherever the object is
  2. changes if the object is in motion
  3. stays the same as long as the object is in motion
  4. changes if the force of gravity changes
Grade 9 Energy and Momentum
An example of an object having elastic potential energy is
  1. a stretched spring
  2. books on a shelf

Grade 9 Forces and Motion
Newton's Third Law gets help from the first two laws. Which aspects from those laws are necessary to help explain Newton's Third Law of Motion? (Check off all answers that apply)
  1. An object in motion tends to stay in motion
  2. An object at rest tends to stay at rest
  3. Force equals mass times acceleration
