(Week 1 and 2)

• Define the three fundamental physical quantities we have introduced, and list their

common Metric and English units.

pointing towards the center of the circle.

• Can extrapolate centripetal acceleration to situations in which an entire circle is not

completed.

• Can give examples of Centripetal Force. Understands that FC is not, by itself, a

physical force (like friction, rope tension, gravity, support force), but is simply a

physical force that is currently causing something to exhibit circular motion.

explain its consequences.

• Can use Newton’s 2nd Law to determine FC from aC, and vice-versa.

• Define projectile motion and explain how an object’s moves in the horizontal and

vertical directions

gravitational pull on an object.

bodies.

(Week 9)

• Define Momentum in words and mathematical equation. Explain each portion of

the equation.

• Explain what is meant by “conservation of momentum”, and define conditions

and/or limits for its application (i.e. no outside forces; conservation immediately

following “event” in the presence of friction)

• Explain ways to change momentum (∆v, ∆m). Relate ∆v to N2.

• Define Impulse (I = Ft), and explain what the components mean. Relate Impulse to

change in momentum (via N2), and explain/give examples of situations in which

varying _t_ may be desired (long _t_, short _t_).

• In a linear collision between two objects determine whether momentum is

conserved, and under what limits, and use the concept to determine various

velocities and/or masses of components.

• Using the above ideas, analyze and/or solve a situation not described in class.

(Week 10)

• Define Energy, and explain what is meant by its conservation. Contrast the Physics

definition with the “social” definition (i.e. “turn of lights to conserve energy)

• Define in words and equations: Kinetic Energy; Gravitational Potential Energy

• Define in words, and give examples of: elastic (spring) PE; Internal Energy;

Thermal Energy; Electrical Energy

• Define Work – explain ways in which work may change energy (W = ∆GPE; W =

∆KE)

• Explain simple machines – levers and inclined planes – using concepts of work and

energy conservation.

• Explain simple (no friction) transformation of energy between KE and GPE

• Explain above energy transformations when friction (air resistance) is present

• Collisions: identify collisions in which energy is conserved, and those in which it is

not. Explain what is meant, in these cases, by “conservation of energy”.

• Using the above ideas, analyze and/or solve a situation not described in class.

relationships (i.e. linear or quadratic) between variables. Can use measures of the

“goodness” of a line fit to determine the correctness of a relationship.

• Results: Can summarize the Results of an experiment: what the data showed;

will be measured, and how you will know whether your results are successful.
