Unit 3 - Quiz 2
2014-15 School Year
The second quiz of the Kinematics unit will be taken at the end of class
on Thursday, December 18. The quiz will address the following objectives:
student should be able to use free fall concepts, the acceleration of
gravity, and kinematic equations (provided) to solve a how fast or how
far word problem.
Packet, Describing Motion with Free Fall, p. 21
Packet, Up and Down Motion in Free Fall, p. 22
Lab: K5 - Up and Down
- Kinematic Equations 1 (last four questions)
- Kinematic Equations 2 (first several questions)
Physics Classroom Tutorial: Kinematics Chapter
, Lesson 5
student should understand and be able to use the CCW convention for vector direction to determine the direction of a vector.
student should understand that vectors are added by a head-to-tail
method and be able to use such a method to graphically identify or represent the
resultant of two or more vectors.
student should be able to use the Pythagorean theorem and SOH CAH TOA
to determine the magnitude and direction of the sum or resultant of two
or more perpendicular vectors.
- The student should be able to determine the components of an angled
vector and use such components to determine the magnitude and direction
of the sum or resultant of two or more non-perpendicular vectors.
