Suggestions for this week's quiz
(Unit 6, Quiz #2):
This week's miniquiz on
Unit 6 material is tentatively scheduled for Thursday,
January 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, speed and
acceleration for circular motion, and balanced torques 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 motion
characteristics of satellites, including the concept that
a satellite is an object in freefall which is acted upon
solely by the force of gravity (see Chapters 14.1  14.4
of Hewitt book).
 An understanding of the concept
of weightlessness and the distinction between weight and
feelings of weightlessness.
 An understanding of torque,
rotational inertia, and rotation and to use this
understanding to explain a variety of phenomena (see
Chapters 11.1  11.5 of Hewitt book).
 An understanding of balanced
torque and an ability to use the torque equation (torque
= F*d) to make predictions about the relative location of
a force or the quantity of force required for equilibrium
to be maintained.
 An understanding of the concept
of center of mass and its application to explaining a
variety of physical phenomenon, including rotational
wobble, toppling, and balance and stability (see
Chapters 10.1  10.5 of Hewitt book).
 An understanding of major
concepts discussed in earlier units during this semester.
