Suggestions for this week's quiz
(Unit 5, Quiz #2):
This week's quiz on Unit 5 material
is tentatively scheduled for Friday, December 12. The quiz
will be a one-page quiz, covering both sides of a single
sheet of paper. The equations for work, power, kinetic
energy, potential energy, 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 problem-types 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 work-energy theorem to make
connections between the work done upon an object and the
initial or final energy state of an object.
- An ability to use initial and
final speed and height values and the work-energy theorem
to predict the final speed or height of an object if
given the description of its motion.
- An ability to construct
work-energy bar charts for simple situations involving
energy tranformations and conversions.
- An understanding of major
concepts discussed in earlier units during this semester
(particularly those concepts from the most recent quiz).
Studying suggestions for those unit quizzes can be
