Suggestions for this week's quiz
(Unit 5, Quiz#2):
This week's quiz on Unit 5 material is tentatively
scheduled for Friday, December 15. The quiz will be a
onepage quiz, covering both sides of a single sheet of
paper. The equations for net force, frictional force,
gravitational force, potential energy and kinetic energy and
a few kinematic equations 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 work
as a force acting upon an object to cause a
displacement; an ability to recognize units of work,
to identify whether or not a force does work upon an
object, and an ability to perform a simple
calculation of the amount of work done by a force
upon an object.
 An ability to use the kinetic
energy and potential
energy equations to perform simple computations and
to use the
workenergy theorem to make connections between the
work done upon an object and the initial or final energy
state of an object. (See several practice
problems and solutions.)
 An ability to use the kinetic energy and potential
energy equations to perform simple computations and to
use the workenergy theorem to make connections
between the work done upon an object and the initial or
final energy state of an object. (See several
practice
problems and solutions.)
 An ability to use initial and final speed and height
values and energyconservation
principles to predict the final speed or height of an
object if given the description of its motion. (See
several practice
problems and solutions.)
 An ability to construct workenergy
bar charts for simple situations involving energy
tranformations and conversions.
