friction — the resistance to motion created by two objects moving against each other; a force that works against
gravity — an unseen force that pulls two objects toward each other
inertia — the tendency for objects to resist motion (Unless acted on by a force, objects in motion tend to stay in
motion, and objects at rest remain at rest.)

motion — a change in an object’s position (described by the object’s direction and speed)
potential energy – stored energy; ex. when a rock is sitting at the top of hill
speed — the measure of motion, how fast an object is moving
