Write your choice on the line to the left of the question number. _______1. In one of our activities, we used software to analyze the motion of a Ferris wheel. You were told : Use the software to plot the velocity in the y-direction of a person on the Ferris wheel. The data looked like the figure below. V y vs. t Is the velocity in the y direction relatively constant? A) No, the velocity is not relatively constant and this data clearly shows that. B) No, the velocity is not relatively constant but “noise” in this data keeps us from seeing that clearly. C) Yes, the velocity is relatively constant and this data clearly shows that. D) Yes, the velocity is relatively constant, but “noise” in this data keeps us from seeing that clearly. E) None of the above is correct. ______ _2. According to Newton’s third law , which of the following pairs of forces is equal and opposite in direction? A) The normal force and the weight (N and W) B) The tension and the weight (T and W) C) The tension and the normal force (T and N) D) The force from a bug on a car windshield and the force from the car windshield on the bug. E) More than one of the above F) None of the above _______ 3. An object is thrown vertically upward.
