Studying Suggestions for Unit 8b Quiz #1 

There will be a quiz on Friday, October 12. The quiz will be a one-page quiz, covering both sides of a single sheet of paper. All equations (the big four and Ffrict, Fnet and Fgrav ) will have to be devoted to memory. Other than a calculator, no helps will be provided nor allowed. Students can expect the following concepts, skills, and problem-types to be assessed on this quiz:

  1. A conceptual understanding of Newton's first law, including the proper belief that forces are not required to maintain an object's motion.

    Newton's First Law || The Big Misconception

     

  2. An ability to relate force-mass-acceleration information in a fill-in-the-blank style question; emphasis will be placed on situations involving friction (pp. 3-4) and situations involving applied forces at angles to the horizontal (pp. 13-14).

    Finding Acceleration || Finding Individual Forces

     

  3. An ability to draw a free-body diagram which accurately depicts the forces acting upon an object in any given physical situation; emphasis will be placed on situations involving friction (pp. 3-4) and situations involving applied forces at angles to the horizontal (pp. 13-14).

    Drawing Free-Body Diagrams

     

  4. An ability to read, interpret and solve a physics word problem involving a combination of kinematic information and force-mass-acceleration information; emphasis will be placed on situations involving friction (pp. 3-4 and Set C) and situations involving applied forces at angles to the horizontal (pp. 13-14 and Set D).

    The Kinematic Equations || Kinematic Equations and Problem-Solving || Net Force Problems Revisited ||

     

  5. A conceptual understanding of equilibrium and an ability to analyze static equilibrium situations in order to determine the tension force, the weight or the mass of an object (pp. 7-8, two Labs and Set D).
