OYOT Chapter 5 Q’s
These Q’s are due on the day of our chapter 5 test, Feb. 16th
5.1-Explain how motion and a reference point are related.
5.2-How is it possible to accelerate while traveling at a constant speed?
5.3-What are the three measurements of motion?
5.4-What is force?
5.5-What are 2 ways to increase friction?
5.6-Explain a situation where you would want to reduce friction as much as possible. How would you go about reducing friction in that activity?
OYOT Chapter 6 Q's
6.1 Skydivers stop accelerating once they reach ~54 m/s (122mph)
Explain why this happens using the following terms: terminal velocity, momentum, mass, air resistance, and gravity
6.2 Why does friction make Newton’s first law difficult to observe?
6.3 If you are standing still on a skateboard with a basketball, and you throw a chest-pass to your friend, what will happen to you? Would the same thing happen if you threw a tennis ball? How does this demonstrate Newton’s 2nd and 3rd Laws?
6.4 What is the “conservation of momentum”?
6.5 If a golf ball and a bowling ball are traveling at the same velocity from the same reference point, will they both stop at the same point? Explain your answer using the terms: inertia, momentum, mass
6.6 Why would the motion of a projectile be different if thrown on the moon?
6.7 What are the two motions involved in orbit?
