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?

They jump into a river 1.0 km across, with a current of 2.0 m/s to the east.. A. The boy faces due north at all times. What is his resultant velocity? B. The girl swims so that she ends up directly across the river. What is her resultant speed?

5 C. In what direction should she head? D. How many minutes does it take each to cross the river? 27. A cannon is shot horizontally at a speed of 150 m/s off of a cliff 45 meters high. How far away from the base of the cliff will the cannonball land? 28.

What is the force of friction acting on a 140 kg box sliding at 2.5 m/s down a 15 ramp if the between the box and the ramp is 0.83? 31. What is the tension in the chain used to hold a 225 kg sign up and to a wall if the chain makes a 25 angle up from horizontal? 32. What force is required to cause a 25 kg sled, moving at 20 m/s to be slowed to 3 m/s in 1.5 seconds?

7 33. A 65 kg ice skater traveling east at 6.0 m/s runs head-on into an 85 kg skater traveling straight west at 4.5 m/s. At what speed and in what direction do the ice skaters travel if they move together after the collision? 34. A 40 kg projectile leaves a 2000 kg launcher with a speed of 400 m/s.
