Force: A push or a pull that can cause the motion of an object to change. It has two important properties: strength and direction.

fuerza un empujón o un tirón que causa el cambio de movimiento en un objeto. Fuerza tiene dos propiedades distintas: fuerza (la calidad e ser fuerte) y dirección.

Balanced Force: When two equal forces act in opposite directions the result is that the forces are balanced and there is no motion.

equilibrado que se encuentra en una posición estable

Motion: The process of moving or changing position.

movimiento el acto de moverse

Unbalanced Force: When one force is stronger than the other the result is motion.

desequilibrado en una posición inestable

Strength: The amount of force that is applied to an object.

Gravity: A force that attracts objects toward the earth. "What goes up, must come down!"
