Henderson's Regular Physics Quizzes

(2000-2001 School Year)

 

Suggestions for this week's quiz (Unit 3, Quiz#2):

This week's quiz on Unit 3 material is tentatively scheduled for Friday, November 3. The quiz will be a one-page quiz, covering both sides of a single sheet of paper. The kinematic equations and the value of g will be stated. 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. To know the definition of a projectile and some basic principles characterizing the motion of a projectile (free-body diagram, independence of vx and vy components, variation of vx and vy with time, values of ax and ay, etc.).
  2. To apply one's understanding of projectiles in order to analyze numerical information in the form of trajectory diagrams and velocity-acceleration-time tables.
  3. To use trigonometric functions in order to resolve a velocity vector into horizontal and vertical velocity components.
  4. To use kinematic equations for the horizontal and vertical motion of a projectile in order to solve word problems involving horizontally-launched projectiles; be prepared to solve for the time and then to use the time to determine either the intial velocity, the horizontal displacement, or the vertical displacement.
  5. To use kinematic equations for the horizontal and vertical motion of a projectile in order to solve word problems involving projectiles launched at angles to the horizontal; be prepared to solve for the time and then to use the time to determine either the intial velocity, the horizontal displacement, or the vertical displacement.
  6. An understanding of previous concepts from the first two units. Studying suggestions for the previous quizzes can be accessed from the Archive of 2000 Studying Suggestions.
