PHYSICS OBJECTIVES FOR FINAL EXAM, 1st Sem.
UNIT 1 Motion
Calculate the average speed of an
object using the change of position and
Represent the velocities for linear and
FINDING THE RESISTANCE MARKED ON THE RESISTOR
The colored bands on a resistor tell its level of resistance.
Each color represents a different digit. The sketch below shows what digit
goes with each color. Sometimes the resistor must be measured to
The slope of the tangent on a position-time graph equals the
The area under the curve on a velocity-time graph equals the:
An object moves back and forth, as shown in the position-time graph. At which points is the velocit

UNIT 5 Periodic Motion
State that uniform circular motion involves acceleration without a change in speed.
Identify the force(s) acting on objects moving with uniform circular
Work is useful; work is what we want to do.
Force and distance must be in the same direction.
Energy is the capacity to do work. We only care about energy because
it allows us to do work.
Mechanical energy includes Gravitational Potentia
State that uniform circular motion involves acceleration
without a change in speed.
A car drives in a circle at a constant speed. Is the car accelerating?
Identify the force(s) acting on objects moving with uniform
Explain instances of energy transfer by waves in everyday
activities (eg., how you hear a distant sound).
Know instances of energy transferred by waves and not by particles.
Describe specific mechanical w
Predict how the electric force between charged objects varies
when the distance between them and/or the magnitude of
How is the electric force between two charged particles changed if the
charge on one of the particle
Propose a mechanism based on electric forces to explain
current flow in an electric circuit
The excess electrons on the negative side of a battery repel each other.
This causes electrons to move from the negative side of a battery t
Explain how the interaction of electric and magnetic forces is
the basis for electric motors, generators, and the production
of electromagnetic waves.
How do generators produce electricity?
At the most fundamental level, how ar
