Studying Suggestions
for Unit 11 Quiz #1
Your next quiz will be either on Thursday, February 13 or
Tuesday, February 18. The quiz will be a onepage quiz,
covering most of both sides of a sheet of paper (and if I
get carried away, a portion of a second sheet). The
equations for work, power, kinetic energy and potential
energy will be given. Other equations will have to be
committed to memory. Other than a calculator, no other helps
will be provided nor allowed. The quiz will be short and
contain a few multiple choice questions and some
calculations; the quiz will primarily test your
understanding of the basic concepts and problemsolving
abilities (such as those used on the Internet Problems). Use
of your packet, the Internet Problems, Minds
On Physics and the online resources at Multimedia
Physics Studios and The
Physics Classroom should provide sufficient review.
Students can expect the following concepts, skills, and
problemtypes to be assessed on this quiz:
 Define work, identify its
units, and identify examples and nonexamples of work;
use the work equation to solve computational
problems.
 Definition
and Mathematics of Work  Calculating
Work 
 Define power, identify its
units, use the power equation(s) to solve computational
problems.
 Power

 Use the relationship between
work and kinetic energy change in order to analyze
physical situations involving horizontal motion and to
solve computational problems in which there is a work and
kinetic energy relationship.
 Analysis
of Situations Involving External
Forces 
 Define and distinguish between
kinetic and potential energy, to identify instances of
each and to solve simple computational problems involving
KE and PE.
 Potential
Energy  Kinetic
Energy  Mechanical
Energy 
 Identify situations in which
only conservative forces are doing work and to analyze
energy conservation situations for any type of motion
(falling, sliding, etc.) and to solve computational
problems for such situations.
