Chapter 7B Tangential and Centripetal Acceleration
An object is accelerating whenever its velocity is changing. Velocity is a vector quantity, so it has a magnitude and a direction.
An object is und
Chapters 10B and 11A The Ideal Gas Law
The ideal gas law relates the absolute pressure, volume, and absolute (Kelvin) temperature of a fixed amount of gas: PV = nRT
n = number of moles of gas R = gas
Chapter 10A Temperature and Heat
All matter has thermal (or internal) energy due to molecular motion. An object's temperature is directly related to the intensity of its molecular motion.
Thermal ener

If we slowly add thermal energy to a substance, two things will happen:
Its temperature will increase.
At certain temperatures it will change phase (melt

Sound
Sound waves are longitudinal pressure waves created by a vibrating object. Some medium must be present. Sound will not travel through a vacuum.
There is no bulk movement of the med
Chapter 2B Equations of Motion
We want to define the relationships between displacement, velocity, acceleration and time. We have used 12 different symbols so far:

Chapter 4B Equilibrium
Some applications of Newton's laws involve objects in equilibrium. An object in equilibrium is not accelerating. Its velocity is constant (maybe zero). The net force on the o

A force F does work when it acts on an object, and the object moves through some displacement x.

W = amount of work performed F = magnitude of applied force F (always +) x =
Chapter 3A Vector Quantities
Vector quantities are characterized by having both a magnitude, with appropriate units, and a direction.
By contrast, scalar quantities have a magnitude, but no direction.
Chapter 4A The Laws of Motion
So far we have discussed motion in terms of displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
Now we will study the cause of motion. (More specifically, we will study what cause
