TEAM JEOPARDY! What is the definition of “distance.” What is the definition of “displacement.” If James has to get from the cafeteria to the IT building and runs the 20m there, only to find out class is in the media center 30m away, what is the distance James traveled. If I turn in the TV in the living room, walk 10m to the kitchen to get a snack, and then walk 8m back to the living room and crash on the couch, what is my displacement? What is the definition of speed? What is the formula for speed? What is the definition of velocity? Is the formula for speed and velocity the same thing? If Sarah can run 10 m in 2 seconds, what is her speed? If a car can drive 55 miles in 11 minutes, how fast is the car traveling? What is the definition of acceleration? What is the formula for acceleration? If Mary is at the track meet and she speeds up from 6 m/s to 10m/s in 2s to win the race, what was her acceleration? What does negative acceleration mean? What directions are negative for vector values? If a car is slowing down AND going west, is the acceleration positive or negative? What is centripetal acceleration? When do we use it? What is the formula for centripetal acceleration? If a horse is running around a ring with a 5m radius, and the horse is trotting at 5m/s, what is it’s centripetal acceleration? What is freefall? What is the formula for freefall when calculating how fast the object was falling? What is the freefall formula to figure out how far the object fell? Tom wants to play a trick on Jerry and drop a bucket of water on his head. If the bucket of water has to fall in one second to hit Jerry coming through the door, how high does the bucket have to be above the door? A rockslide happened in California last week and a boulder hit a Toyota. If the rock took 3 seconds to fall and hit the car, what was the rock’s final velocity? What are the three types of projectile motions? (the fancy word is trajectory) What are the two types of velocities we have to think about for projectile motion? What is vertical acceleration ALWAYS going to be? What is vertical velocity when the object is falling? What is vertical velocity at the object’s peak. What is horizonal velocity?
