PS 6.
Motion in uniform gravitational field; graphing  distance traveled equals area
under
v vs t
graph; vectors  graphing, converting length and angle to
x
and
y
coordinates,
and back ((x,y)
→
(r,
θ
)).
PS 7.
Projectile motion:
time in the air, maximum height, range; components of initial
velocity
PS 8.
Newton's third law and action and reaction pairs; F = ma (given force and mass,
calculate acceleration, then solve the resulting motion)
PS 9.
Motion in gravity on another planet; action and reaction pairs operating on objects
of different mass; adding vector forces
PS 10.
