PHY 302K Unique # 56485 Review for Exam #1 15 September 2010 Guidelines for the exam: 1. Ten questions, multiple choice. 2. You are permitted one double-sided, hand-written formula sheet. No other formulas are provided. For example, if you don't know the sin of 30 degrees, you'd better write it down. 3. A calculator will be permitted, but will not be necessary. Guide for review. We can put the stuff we've studied so far into five groups. Two questions will be selected from each group. Group 1: Preliminaries (Chapter 1) - SI units, unit conversions, and dimensional analysis - Estimates, including orders of magnitude Group 2: Motion in one dimension (Chapter 2) - Definitions of position, distance, average velocity, instantaneous velocity, speed, acceleration, etc. - Equations of motion with constant acceleration Group 3: Vectors (Chapter 3, Sec. 1-3) - Resolving a vector into components; figuring out the magnitude and direction of a vector given its components. - Addition and subtraction of vectors; the scalar (dot) product. Group 4: Motion in two dimensions (Chapter 3, Sec. 3-5) - Displacement, velocity, and acceleration as vector quantities - Projectile motion Group 5: Newton's Laws (Chapter 4, Sec. 1-4) - The first law, the law of inertia - The second law, F = m a - The third law, F 12 = -F 21
