H. Geophysical Science Review for test of mechanics unit. Topics: Speed, velocity, acceleration, conversions and measurements and scientific method Conversions Formulas for speed, velocity and acceleration problems will be given. For full credit all solved problems must show givens, formulas used and plugin values with units and answers with units Need calculator and pencil for test Make conversions using both King Henry and dimensional analysis. Solve problems and answer questions about the concept of speed a studied in the bulldozer lab. Differentiate among the following vocabulary; fundamental and derived units, scalar and vector quantities, standard units and symbols for the topics speed and velocity Define speed, velocity, acceleration Solve problems of acceleration including final velocity Solve problems velocity and speed Scientific notation Graph analysis of independent and dependent variable as it relates to speed or velocity Distinguish among the steps of scientific method and what is done and why at each step Formulas: s=d/t v=d/t a= vf-vi/ t vf= vi + at
