Unit 6 - Quiz 3

2014-15 School Year


The first quiz of the Conservation Laws unit will be taken on Friday, May 22. The quiz will address the following objectives:

  1. The student should be able to use the impulse-momentum change theorem to make predictions regarding the effect of changes in one variable upon other quantities (m, ∆v, F, t, ∆p, and I) and to use the theorem to explain phenomenon involving impulses, momentum change, and collisions.

    Other Online Resource: Physics Interactives - Egg Drop (pp. 33-34)


  2. The student should be able to use the impulse-momentum change equation to calculate an unknown quantity within the equation; such abilities should include the ability to analyze rebounding situations and multiple-impulse situations.

  4. The student should be able to combine an understanding of the law of momentum conservation with the use of a momentum table or momentum equation in order to analyze a collision and predict the post- (or pre-) collision velocity of an object.
