Gravity for $500 The force of gravity between two objects is affected by which of the following: Masses of the objects Volumes of the objects Densities of the objects Distance between the objects
Free Fall for $100 Air Resistance causes the speed of a falling object to ______________.
Decrease Back toGame
Free Fall for $200 Only in a vacuum or in space can an object be in _____________.
Free Fall Back toGame
Free Fall for $300 A feather is in free fall when the force of gravity: Is greater than the force of air resistance Is less than the force of air resistance Is equal to the force of air resistance Is the only force acting on it
d. Is the only force acting on it Back toGame
Free Fall for $400 Why do astronauts in space appear weightless?
They are in free fall. Back toGame
Free Fall for $500 A pitched baseball gets its vertical motion from: The force of gravity The force of the hand throwing it. Air resistance Projectile Motion
a. The force of gravity. Back toGame
Newton’s Laws for $100 Newton’s first law states that an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. If you roll a ball across the floor, you put the ball in motion, but after time, the ball stops. Does this violate Newton’s first law? Why or why not?
No, because the ball is acted upon by the unbalanced force of friction Back toGame
Newton’s Laws for $200 Newton’s first law of motion states that an object will keep a constant speed and direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. To test this statement, Martin rolled a ball on a long, level street. The ball did not bump into any object, but it eventually came to a stop. How is this possible?
The unbalanced force that caused the ball to stop was friction. Back toGame
Newton’s Laws for $300 Gina is driving her car down the street. She has a teddy bear sitting on the back seat. A dog runs in front of Gina’s car, so she quickly applies the brakes. The force of the brakes causes the car to stop, but the teddy bear continues to move forward until it hits the car’s dashboard. The teddy bear did not stop at the same time as the car because…
Objects in motion tend to stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. Back toGame
Newton’s Laws for $400 In a football game, a defensive lineman exerts a force upon an offensive lineman, causing the offensive lineman to be accelerated backward at 2m/s2. If the offensive lineman’s mass were doubled, how much force would the defensive lineman have to apply to accelerate the offensive lineman 2m/s2 backward? The same amount Half as much Four times as much Twice as much
d. Twice as much Back toGame
Newton’s Laws for $500 Jodie sets two objects on a flat surface. Object A has a mass of 50g, while object B has a mass of 250g. Jodie pushes both objects with the same force and watches them speed up. Which object will speed up more? Object B speeds up more. They speed up the same amount. Neither object speeds up. Object A speeds up more.
d. Object A speeds up more. Back toGame
Momentum & Inertia for $100 Last minute Louis frantically tried to finish his homework while his mom drove him to school. He placed his book on his lap and was reaching for a pencil when his mom suddenly slammed on the brakes. Although Louis stayed buckled in his seat, his book flew forward and crashed into the front windshield. Which of the following was most responsible for the book flying forward: Friction b. Displacement c. Inertia d. Gravity
c. Inertia Back toGame
Momentum & Inertia for $200 Reggie accidentally left his books on top of his car before he left for class. The books stayed on top of his car while he was driving north on Oak Avenue. Then, when he made a sharp turn eastward onto Harris Lane, his books fell off the top of his car and onto the street. Which of the following best explains why Reggie’s books fell? When Reggie’s car turned eastward, his books continued moving northward, causing them to slide off the top of his car. The force of gravity caused Reggie’s books to slide across the top of his car and fall. Heat energy from the sun caused Reggie’s books to slide off the top of his car and fall. The people that live on Harris Lane hate reading, which caused the books to fall off.
A. When Reggie’s car turned eastward, his books continued moving northward, causing them to slide off the top of his car. Back toGame
