Introductory Physics Final Review Packet
Notes:
You will be allowed to use one 8.5” by 11” sheet of paper (both sides) on
the final, with any desired
handwritten
content.
The exam will be part multiple-
choice and part long-answer.
On calculation problems, you must show your work.
You must bring your own No. 2 pencil and your own calculator. Please sharpen all
pencils in advance (of course).
1.
How do you find ‘total distance covered’ from a distance-vs-time graph?
2.
How do you find the average velocity from a distance vs. time graph?
3.
How do you find distance covered from a velocity vs. time graph?
4.
Draw a graph of distance vs. time for a car that stays stopped for 2 seconds and then
goes forward at a constant speed for three seconds.
5.
What does it mean if the distance line is horizontal on a distance-vs-time graph?
6.
What does it mean if the velocity line is horizontal on a velocity-vs-time graph?
7.
Draw graphs of position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time for an
object remaining at a constant position.
8.
Draw graphs of position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time for an
object moving at a constant velocity.
9.
Draw graphs of position vs. time, velocity vs. time, and acceleration vs. time for an
object moving with a constant positive acceleration.
10.
Of the following physical quantities, make a table with the following columns(a)
vector or scalar, (b) the standard metric units and special unit with abbreviation if
applicable, (c) abbreviation, (d) definition, (e) equations if applicable:
Distance, Time, Mass, Weight, Temperature, Velocity, Speed, Acceleration, Force,
Momentum, Potential (gravitational) Energy, Kinetic Energy, Work, Power,
Wavelength, Period, Frequency, Voltage, Current, Resistance
11.
A parent wishes to measure a toddler’s height.
Naturally, the parent wants to use
the metric system.
What tool should be used, and what units should be used, and
what approximate height would be realistic (in those units)?
