Unit 2 Test Study Guide (Friction,Gravity and Newton’s 1)

question

Why is it important to keep accurate records, notes and charts while doing an experiment?
answer

So experiment can be repeated the same way again
question

why is it easy to slip when there is water on the floor
answer

there is less friction
question

what factors impact the amount of friction between objects
answer

the amount of force between the objects and the roughness of the surfaces
question

a box being pushed across the floor (type of friction)
answer

sliding
question

a bird flying through the air air (type of friction)
answer

sliding
question

a book sitting on a table (type of friction)
answer

static
question

riding a skateboard (type of friction)
answer

rolling
question

which of following examples has the greatest amount of friction between the object
answer

a box being pushed across the floor
question

why must you exert a force to pick up an object ? what must you overcome
answer

an object at rest tends to stay at rest you must overcome gravity
question

Law of Universal Gravitation
answer

Gravitational force increases as mass increases Gravitational force decreases as distance increases
question

weight
answer

measurement of how hard gravity is pulling on that object
question

mass
answer

amount of matter in an object does not change based on location
question

if earths mass doubled without changing its size, what would happen to your weight
answer

your weight will double because of the increase in gravitational force
question

how would the gravitational force between 1kg of lead and earth compare to the gravitational force between 1kg of marshall and Earth
answer

the gravitational force would be equal because the masses are equal
question

a penny is dropped from the top of a tall stairwell. what is the penny's velocity after it has fallen for 4s
answer

39.2
question

terminal velocity
answer

is the constant velocity of a falling object when the force of air resistance is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the force of gravity
question

what is not projectile motion
answer

swimming in a pool of water
question

the acceleration of an object depends on the mass of the object and the amount of force applied
answer

newton's 2
question

whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first
answer

newton's 3
question

according to newton's 2 law how can you increase the acceleration of an object that is pushed by a force
answer

reduce the mass or increase the force applied
question

when you ride the bus, why do you fall forward if you are standing and the bus moving
answer

when the bus stops your inertia hasn't been changed and you will continue in motion
question

when a soccer ball is kicked, why don't the action and reaction forces cancel each other out
answer

the forces act on opposite objects
question

what would have to have to happen to the force applied if you wanted to accelerate two objects with different at the same rate
answer

you would have to use a greater force with the larger object
