Key Vocabulary and Definitions

Below is a list of key physics terms included in the word search, complete with easy-to-understand definitions:

  • ENERGY – The ability to do work or cause changes in matter.
  • FORCE – A push or a pull that can make an object move, stop, or change direction.
  • GRAVITY – The force that pulls objects towards the center of the Earth or any other large body.
  • MASS – The amount of matter in an object, which does not change no matter where the object is located.
  • VELOCITY – The speed of an object in a specific direction.
  • ACCELERATION – The rate at which the speed or direction of an object changes over time.
  • FRICTION – The force that opposes the motion of two surfaces that are in contact.
  • INERTIA – The tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion.
  • POWER – The rate at which work is done or energy is transferred.
  • VOLTAGE – A measure of the electrical force that drives an electric current between two points.
  • CURRENT – The flow of electrical charge through a conductor.
  • RESISTANCE – The opposition to the flow of electric current, causing electrical energy to be converted to heat or another form of energy.
  • MAGNETISM – The force of attraction or repulsion between objects that results from the motion of electric charges.
  • SPECTRUM – The range of different colors of light, made visible as a band of colors when white light is passed through a prism.
  • REFRACTION – The bending of light as it passes from one material into another material where its speed is different.
  • LENS – A piece of glass or other transparent material that bends light rays to focus or spread them.
  • PULSE – A single vibration or short burst of sound, light, or energy.
  • WAVELENGTH – The distance between one peak of a wave and the next, measuring how long a wave is.
  • AMPLITUDE – The height of a wave, measured from the middle to the top of a crest or the bottom of a trough.
  • FREQUENCY – How often something happens in a given amount of time, such as the number of waves that pass a point in one second.
  • QUANTUM – The smallest possible amount of energy that can be emitted or absorbed as electromagnetic radiation.
  • NEUTRON – A subatomic particle found in the nucleus of an atom that has no electric charge.
  • ELECTRON – A tiny, negatively charged particle that orbits the nucleus of an atom.
  • PROTON – A positively charged particle in the nucleus of an atom.
  • PHOTON – A particle of light that carries energy but has no mass.
