PHSX 114 Second Midterm Review Sheet Chapters 3 through 4 -- Spring 2009 Terminology: y velocity y speed y acceleration y vector y scalar y magnitude y component y unit vector y Projectile motion y mass (inertial mass) y force y weight y apparent weight y tension y normal force y friction (static and kinetic) y terminal speed Principles: y perpendicular components of motion can be described by separate equations y Newton’s first, second and third laws of motion y objects fall with the same acceleration regardless of mass y empirical force laws for friction Skills: y solve dynamics problems involving one and two-dimensional motion y construct free body diagrams and find equations of motion using Newton’s Laws y be able to relate velocities in different inertial reference frames y vector operations: find components, find magnitudes and directions, addition, subtraction, multiplication by a scalar y describe and work with vectors in Cartesian coordinates y draw and interpret motion diagrams y represent motion on graphs and interpret graphs (x vs. t, x vs. y, v vs. t, a vs. t)
