Unit 4 - Quiz 1

2014-15 School Year


The first quiz of the Newtonian Model of Motion unit will be taken at the end of class on Friday, February 6. The quiz will address the following objectives:

  1. The student should be able to state the law of inertia, define inertia and relate the relative amount of mass to the inertia of an object.

    Packet: Inertia and Mass (p. 1)
    MOP: Newton's Laws Module - Assignments NL1
    Physics Classroom Tutorial: Newton's Laws Chapter, Lesson 1a, 1b


  2. The student should be to apply Newton's first law of motion to relate the state of motion an object (at rest, constant speed, accelerating leftward, accelerating rightward, etc.) to the balance or imbalance of forces.

    Packet: Misconceptions Regarding Force and Motion (p. 2, Top)
    Packet: Balanced vs. Unbalanced Forces (pp. 5-6)
    Packet: Net Force and Acceleration (p. 12)
    Lab NM1: Pass the Water;  Lab NM2: Galileo for a Day
    MOP: Newton's Laws Module - Assignments NL2, NL3
    Physics Classroom Tutorial: Newton's Laws Chapter, Lesson 1c, 1d
    Other Online Resource: Physics Interactives - Rocket Sledder (pp. 3-4)


  3. The student should be able to identify the forces acting upon an object and construct a free-body diagram for the object if given a description of the physical situation.

    Packet: Force Types (p. 8); Recognizing Forces (pp. 9-11)
    Packet: Free-Body Diagrams (p. 15)
    MOP: Newton's Laws Module - Assignments NL4, NL5
    Physics Classroom Tutorial: Newton's Laws Chapter, Lesson 2
    Other Online Resource: Physics Interactives - Free-Body Diagrams


  4. The student should be able to distinguish between mass and weight and be able to relate to the two quantities mathematically.

    Packet: Misconceptions Regarding Mass and Weight (p. 2, bottom)
    Packet: Mass and Weight (p. 7)
    Lab NM3: Wait! Hmmmm. Ghee.
    MOP: Newton's Laws Module - Assignments NL6
    Physics Classroom Tutorial: Newton's Laws Chapter, Lesson 2b


  5. The student should be able to state Newton's second law and use it qualitatively to predict the effect of alterations in net force or mass upon the acceleration of an object and quantitatively to calculate the acceleration from knowledge of the mass and individual force values.

    Packet: Newton's Second Law (pp. 13-14); Net Force and Acceleration (p. 16)
    Lab NM4: F-m-a Relationship
    Physics Classroom Tutorial: Newton's Laws Chapter, Lesson 3a, 3b, 3c
