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
