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 one-page 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 problem-solving 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 problem-types to be assessed on this quiz:

  1. Define work, identify its units, and identify examples and non-examples of work; use the work equation to solve computational problems.

    || Definition and Mathematics of Work || Calculating Work ||


  2. Define power, identify its units, use the power equation(s) to solve computational problems.

    || Power ||


  3. 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 ||


  4. 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 ||


  5. 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.

    || Conservative vs. Non-Conservative Forces || Analysis of Situations Involving Energy Conservation ||
