Unit 2 Assignment: Newtons Laws
1. When your car moves along the highway at a constant velocity, the net force on it is zero.
Why, then, do you continue running your engine?
Fnet = a * m
With no change in velocity the

7. The temperature of the Suns interior is about 10^7 degrees.
Does it matter whether this is degree is
Celsius or kelvins? Defend
Unit 7 Assignment 1: Static and Current Electricity
14. When a car is moved into a painting chamber, a mist of
paint is sprayed around it. When the body of the car is given
Unit 9 Assignment 1: Waves
1. What is the source of wave motion? Energy generated at any point in a mechanical
medium gets transmitted in the form of waves due to simple harmonic vibrations of the
particles of the medium and this pheno

Paul Dirac was a British theoretical physicist who made fundamental contributions to the
development of quantum mechanics, quantum field theory and quantum electrodynamics,
Unit 8 Assignment 1: Magnetism
20. A magnetic eld can deect a beam of electrons, but it
cannot do work on the electrons to change their speed.
Why? Because the magnetic fi

3. In a deep dive, a whale is
appreciably compressed by
the pressure of the surrounding water. What happens to the whales density? Mass
Unit 4 Assignment 1: Projectile Motion
13. The planet Jupiter is more than 300 times as massive as
Earth, so it might seem that a body on the surface of
Jupiter would weigh 300 times as much as it would weigh
on Earth. But it so happen

8. When your car moves along the highway at a constant
velocity, the net force on it is zero. Why, then, do you
continue running your engine? The net force zero is achieved by balance of forces: d
