Suggestions for this week's quiz
(Unit 4, Quiz #1):
This week's quiz on Unit 4
material is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, November 24.
The quiz will be a onepage quiz, covering both sides of a
single sheet of paper. The equations for momentum, impulse
and momentum change theorem, net force, frictional force,
gravitational force and average acceleration will be
provided. Other than a calculator, no other helps
will be provided nor allowed. Students can expect the
following concepts, skills, and problemtypes to be assessed
on this quiz:
 An understanding of the concept
of momentum as the quantity of motion which an object
has and its
distinction with inertia as the amount of resistance
which an object offers to an unbalanced force.
 An ability to use the
momentum equation to perform some rather simple
computations.
 An understanding of the impulsemomentum
change theorem and the ability to use it to calculate
one of the four important collision parameters (force,
time, mass, and velocitychange).
 A qualitative
understanding of the impulsemomentum change theorem
and the ability to use it to predict (both qualitatively
and quantitatively) the effect of a change in one
variable (e.g., the doubling of the time) upon another
variable.
 An ability to relate Newton's three laws
(particularly the second
and the third)
to a description of a collision and to compare the forces
and accelerations between objects in a collision.
 An ability to use
momentum conservation principles to compute the
aftercollision velocity of an object if given
precollision information; and to qualitatively
predict the effect of an increase (or decrease) in
the amount of mass in motion upon the subsequent velocity
of an object.
 An understanding of major concepts discussed in
earlier units during this semester. Studying suggestions
for those unit quizzes can be accessed through the
following links.
