Unit 1 – Motion and Forces Review

Learning Goals:

Forces Review Learning Goals

  • I can identify/draw forces acting on a object in a free-body diagram or picture.
  • I can determine if forces are balanced or unbalanced and explain why.
  • I can explain how distance and mass affect gravity
  • I can make connections between the 3 Laws of Motion and pictures/diagrams.
  • I know the relationship between acceleration, force, and mass.

Basic vocabulary:

force balanced forces unbalanced forces
net force friction air resistance
mass gravity inertia
weight vector acceleration

Kinematics Review Learning Goals

  • I can distinguish distance and displacement
  • I can distinguish speed and velocity.
  • I can calculate the average velocity of an object.
  • I can interpret/draw the position vs. time graph for an object moving with constant velocity.
  • I can interpret/draw the velocity vs. time graph for an object moving with constant velocity.
  • I can calculate the acceleration of an object with direction and proper units.
  • I can interpret/draw the velocity vs. time graph for an object moving with changing velocity.

Basic vocabulary:

distance displacement time
speed velocity acceleration
