Exam 2 Review – Chapters 4-6.4. Key Concepts 1. How do we describe motion? What are Newton’s Laws and why are they so important? 2. What is the Universal Law of Gravitation? How does it relate to tides? 3. What is energy? What is meant by a conservation law, and specifically, the conservation of energy. What are some of the different forms of energy? 4. What is the nature of light? In what ways does it behave like a wave and in what ways does it behave like a particle? What are the important properties of light waves? Describe the electromagnetic spectrum. What kinds of things do we see when we pass light from an astronomical source through a prism? What kinds of information can we glean from these spectra? 5. How do telescopes help us in astronomy? 6. What are some of the interesting properties of our solar system? How did our solar system form? Terms 1. velocity 2. speed 3. acceleration 4. force 5. Newton’s Laws 6. weight 7. Universal Law of Gravitation 8. inverse square law 9. tidal force 10. spring tide 11. neap tide 12. tidal friction
