1 Name: Class: Physics Teacher: Mr. Szopiak Date: Midterm Exam: Making a Study Guide This worksheet will help you and your classmates put together a pretty comprehensive guide to your midterm studying. Your task is to first select 3 questions from each section. You should fully work out each problem on a separate sheet of paper cleanly and neatly. You should also provide helpful comments on each step that you take. By pooling all of these together among the class, you will be able to form a really solid study guide for yourselves (Plus, this will be your opportunity to earn points back on your last test) SECTION I: KINEMATIC QUANTITIES 1. You decide to run from your house to a friend s house that is 3 miles away. You then walk home. (a) What distance do you travel? (b) What was your displacement for the entire trip? (c) Using this example, explain how distance and displacement are two different quantities used to describe the changing of location. 2. True or False: An object can be moving for 10 seconds and still have zero displacement? (a) If the above statement is true, then describe example of such a motion. If the above statement is false, then explain why it is false. (b) How do we often represent the quantity displacement in the xdirection? Be sure to explain what all the symbols you use mean. 3. True or False: It is possible for an object to move for 10 seconds at a high speed and end up with an average velocity of zero. (a) If the above statement is true, then describe example of such a motion. If the above statement is false, then explain why it is false. (b) How is speed different than velocity? (c) How are the equations for calculating speed and velocity different? What can we learn about speed and velocity from these equations? 4. You run from your house to a friend s house that is 3 miles away in 30 minutes. You then immediately walk home, taking 1 hour on your return trip. (a) What is the average speed (in mi/hr) for the entire trip? (b) What was the average velocity (in mi/hr) for the entire trip? (c) What is the instantaneous velocity at t = 22 min? (d) Which of the above quantities must include a direction? 5. While playing fetch with your dog, you decide to calculate the speed and velocity at which it can run. (a) On the first throw, you throw it 60 m away, and the dog zigzags to where the ball is thrown and then stops. Which value is higher the average speed or the average velocity of your dog? Explain what practical information these two values give you. (b) On the second throw to the same spot 60 m away, the dog runs straight to the ball. Calculate the average speed and average velocity. Compare the magnitudes of average speed and the average velocity. What do you notice about these quantities in this situation? 6. Wile E. Coyote is chasing after the roadrunner. The roadrunner travels at an average speed of 53 mph, while Wile E. Coyote travels at an average speed of 46 mph.
2 Worksheet: Midterm Study Guide Page 2 of 6 (a) Convert both average speeds into m/s using dimensional analysis. (b) How long, in seconds, does it take the roadrunner to run a straight distance of 750 m? (c) How long, in seconds, does it take the Wile E. Coyote to run that same distance? (d) The edge of a cliff is 750 m away. Wile E. Coyote runs in a straight line to the cliff, and (surprisingly) beats the roadrunner there by 10 seconds. What, then, is the overall distance travelled by the roadrunner? (e) What might the roadrunner s path from part (d) look like? 7. Your pet frog jumps 15 times a minute. Each jump covers a distance of 5 inches. (a) What is the average velocity of your frog, in in/min? (b) What is the average velocity of your frog in m/s? (c) If your frog jumps for 10 minutes in a straight line, what will its displacement be? 8. A car is moving backwards down a hill at 3.0 m/s when the driver gets the engine started. After 2.5 s, the car is moving uphill at a velocity of 4.5 m/s. (a) Calculate the car s average acceleration. (b) In a car, there are 3 controls that can cause a car to accelerate. What are they? Explain how each one causes the car to accelerate. (c) The units for acceleration are ordinarily m = position. This means that this object with this acceleration s 2 time 2. (Select all that apply. Explain why each one applies or does not apply.) i. Moves 3 meters in 1 second ii. Changes its velocity by 3 m/s in 1 s iii. Moves 30 meters in 10 seconds iv.

How long does it take Rennata to roll to a stop? 13. A bullet leaves a rifle with a muzzle velocity of 521 m/s. While accelerating through the barrel of the rifle, the bullet moves a distance of m. Determine the acceleration of the bullet (assume that it is uniform that is, the acceleration is the same throughout). 14. A runner is moving with a velocity of 4 m/s when she accelerates at 2 m/s 2 for 3 seconds. How fast is she traveling now? 15.
