Henderson's Regular Physics Quizzes

(1997-98 School Year)

 

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

This week's quiz on Unit 3 material is tentatively scheduled for Friday, November 7. 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 will be provided along with the kinematic equations. 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 understanding of the concept of equilibrium and the ability to utilize the concept in order to predict the state of motion of an object.
  2. An ability to use trigonometric functions and the concept of equilibrium to analyze the forces exerted upon an object in in static equilibrium and to determine the tension in a cable or the weight of the object.
  3. An ability to resolve a force at an angle into its horizontal and vertical components and then to use the components and other given information in conjuction with Newton's second law in order to determine the acceleration of the object.
  4. To use concepts of projectile motion and the kinematic equations in order to solve problems involving the horizontal launching of projectiles from an elevated position: typical unknowns include the time of flight, the horizontal range, the initial height and the initial launch velocity.
  5. To use concepts of projectile motion and the kinematic equations in order to solve problems involving the launching of projectiles at angles to the horizontal; typical unknowns include the time of flight, the horizontal range and the peak height.
  6. An understanding of previous concepts from the previous units. Use the links below to see the Studying Suggestions for the quizzes from the previous three units.
