Energy and Motion
|What is intertia?
Inertia is Sir Issac Newton's first LAW OF MOTION.
It states that an object at rest will remain at rest; an object in
motion will stay in motion.
How do you SAY the word inertia?
It is pronounced EE-NUR-SHA.
What is motion?
Motion is the force that causes an object to move or stay still.

Do you know the difference between
potential and kinetic energy?

potential and kinetic energy!
|What is potential energy?
Potential energy is stored energy.
It has the "potential" to move.
For example (the top of a roller coaster hill)
|What is kinetic energy?
Kinetic energy is energy in motion.
For example (as you are rolling down the hill on a roller coaster)
