Studying Suggestions for Unit 6 Quiz #2

The second Unit 6 quiz will be on Thursday, April 12. The quiz will be a one-page 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 problem-types to be assessed on this quiz:

  1. Students should be able to interpret position-time and velocity-time graphs in order to describe the motion of an object.

    || The Meaning of Shape for a p-t Graph || The Meaning of Shape for a v-t Graph ||

     

  2. Students should be able to use the slope and the area of velocity-time graphs to determine such quantities as displacement, distance and acceleration.

    || Determining the Slope on a v-t Graph || Determining the Area on a v-t Graph ||

     

  3. Students should be able to memorize the four kinematic equations and use them to solve physics word problems.

    || The Kinematic Equations || Kinematic Equations and Problem-Solving || Sample Problems and Solutions ||

     

  4. 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.

    || Acceleration ||
