List three examples each of things that
are commonly measured by mass, volume, and length.
Mass:
Volume:
Length:
What are base units?
Give 3 examples of base units:
What are derived units?
Give 5 examples of derived units and what
are each derived from?
Which units are each of the following measured
in typically?:
Acceleration:Force:
Work:Power:
What units must the mass be measured in to calculate force?
What units must the acceleration be measured in to calculate force?
What units must the distance be measured in to calculate work?
What units must the time be measured in
to calculate power?
Scientific method
Which of the following is example of a hypothesis?
How do you use a hypothesis?
Give examples of:
how science depends on technology
how technology depends on science
Define:
experimental (i.e., independent) variable

dependent variable 
control variables 
Why do you only test one variable at a
time?
Motion, Force, and Acceleration
What is the velocity of a bullet that travels
400 meters in 7 seconds?
If a car is traveling at 70km/hr, how far
will it travel in half an hour?
Which has more momentum: A 5 kg soccer
ball moving at 100 m/s or a 20 kg cannon ball moving at 30 m/s?
If a skier increases speed from 2.0 m/s
to 4.5 m/s in 5 seconds, what is her acceleration?
Describe what is happening to the car whose
movement is described in the following graphs:
Give an example of unbalanced (or balanced)
forces.
State Newton’s Laws of motion (there are
three) and give an example of each:
What is the net force necessary to accelerate
a 10 kg bicycle forward at 2.0 m/s2? (Show your work!)
A flower pot falls from a ledge at 9.8
m/s2. If it hits the ground with 10.0 N of force, how much mass was
in the flower pot? (Show your work!)
Give an example of how an object’s weight
could change? (Note: This is not a biology question.)
