one variable increases with an
increase in another variable.

expressed in hertz (Hz).
61 - SI unit of force (N).
63 - the state in which the net force
on an object is zero.

on an object.
75 - (2 words) a method of using
conversion factors and unit
canceling to solve a unit
conversion problem.
76 - how close a measurement is to
an accepted or true value.
78 - the property of an object that
resists changes in its motion.
79 - the pivot point of a lever.
80 - the rate at which velocity
changes.

energy.
84 -(2 words) measurement system
used for everyday measurements
in the United States.
85 - a graph of two variables thought
to be related.
86 - a unit of energy. Equal to
enough energy to push with a
force of 1newton for a distance of
1 meter.
87 - a unit of power equal to one joule
per second.
88 - (2 words) a relationship in which
one variable decreases when
another variable increases.
89 - (2 words) a wave that is confined
in a space.
90 - (2 words) in an experiment, a
variable that responds to changes
in the independent variable.
DOWN
1 - a device that swings back and
force due to the force of gravity.
3 - (2 words) the set of rules that are
obeyed by every detail of

speed and direction
17 -(3 words) a law that states that as
long as interacting objects are not
influenced by outside forces, the
