Studying Suggestions
for Unit 6 Quiz #2
The second Unit 6 quiz will be on Thursday, April 12. The
quiz will be a onepage quiz, covering both sides of a
single sheet of paper. No equations will be provided; you
should expect to memorize the four kinematic equations and
the equations/definitions of average velocity and average
acceleration. Students can expect the following concepts,
skills, and problemtypes to be assessed on this quiz:
 Students should be able to interpret positiontime
and velocitytime graphs in order to describe the motion
of an object.
 The
Meaning of Shape for a pt Graph  The
Meaning of Shape for a vt Graph 
 Students should be able to use the slope and the area
of velocitytime graphs to determine such quantities as
displacement, distance and acceleration.
 Determining
the Slope on a vt Graph  Determining
the Area on a vt Graph 
 Students should be able to memorize the four
kinematic equations and use them to solve physics word
problems.
 The
Kinematic Equations  Kinematic
Equations and ProblemSolving  Sample
Problems and Solutions 
 An understanding of the acceleration concept as a
rate at which velocity changes; an ability to identify
the direction of the acceleration vector; and an ability
to use the equation for acceleration to arrive at a
solution to a simple problem.
