1 PHYSICS REVIEW SHEET 2010 MID-TERM EXAM Concepts And Definitions Definitions of fact, hypothesis, law, theory Explain the scientific method Difference between average and instantaneous speed and speed and velocity Describe Acceleration and Free Fall Distinguish between scalars and vectors Add and resolve vectors into their components Predict impact distances, horizontal and vertical velocities for all projectiles Desiree circular motion and the resultant forces associated with it Explain and apply Newton's three laws Distinguish between weight and mass Calculate and explain the effects of friction Describe air resistance and terminal velocity Use the impulse equation to explain real-life situations Describe and calculate problems using the Law of Conservation of Momentum Relate work, potential energy and kinetic energy to one another Apply the Law of Conservation of Energy Calculate the efficiency of a machine Explain how torque and center of mass affect rotation Explain the Law of Universal Gravity Evaluate the contributions of Galileo and Kepler to the study of Mechanics Sample Problems 1. You want to complete a 500 mile trip in 10 hours. Yet, because of the ever-present construction zones, you only average 40 mph for the first two hours. You then need to stop for lunch, which kills another 1/2 hour. How fast must you drive (on average) to complete the trip on time? 2. If an airplane can go from its top speed of 48 m/s to a taxi speed of 5.5 m/s in 8.37 seconds, how long a runway does it need?
