Henderson's Regular Physics Quizzes

(1997-98 School Year)


Suggestions for this week's quiz (Kinematic Equations)::

This week's quiz on Kinematic Equations and Newton's Laws material is tentatively scheduled for Friday, October 17. The quiz will be a one-page quiz, covering both sides of a single sheet of paper. The equations for net force, frictional force, gravitational force, average acceleration, average speed, and the four kinematic equations will be provided; the value of g will be given. Other than a calculator, no other helps will be provided nor allowed. Students can expect the following concepts, skills, and problem-types to be assessed on this quiz:

  1. An ability to use the kinematic equations to solve physics word problems.
  2. An ability to use Newton's second law of motion and free-body diagrams in conjunction with kinematic equations in order to solve physics word problems.
  3. An ability to use velocity-time graphs in conjunction with kinematic equations in order to solve physics word problems.
  4. An ability to apply your understanding of accelration in order to develop velocity-time information and then to plot the velocity-time data.
  5. An understanding of concepts discussed on previous quizzes in previous units. Studying suggestions for the quizzes for these previous units can be accessed by using the links below.
