Suggestions for this week's quiz
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
will be provided nor allowed. Students can expect the
following concepts, skills, and problem-types to be assessed
on this quiz:
- An ability to use the kinematic
equations to solve physics word problems.
- 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.
- An ability to use velocity-time
graphs in conjunction with kinematic equations in order
to solve physics word problems.
- An ability to apply your
understanding of accelration in order to develop
velocity-time information and then to plot the
- An understanding of concepts
discussed on previous quizzes in previous units. Studying
