### 5 Matching Questions

1. Moment of Force (units)
2. Conservation
3. Statics
4. Impulse (units)
5. Kinetic Energy (units)
1. a Nm-rotary force (drawn as a vector, but as an arc) M=Fd_I
2. b J-capacity to do work; "energy of motion"
3. c both momentum and mechanical energy are conserved
4. d N*s-area under the force-time curve
5. e the study of bodies at rest; an object moving at constant velocity=@rest

### 5 Multiple Choice Questions

1. N/m2-Force distributed over a given area
2. study of biological systems from a mechanical perspective
3. N-3D forces measured at the ground; represent the summation fo acceleration (F=ma) of all body segments. Point of application is the COP.
4. N-push or pull acting on a body or a system; has magnitude and direction
5. J-force multiplied by displacement of system

### 5 True/False Questions

1. Weight (units)N-amount of gravitational force exerted on a system (always points downwards, point of application is always the COM)

2. Newton's Law of Accelerationfor every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction

3. Impulse-Momentum RelationshipWhen an impulse acts on a system, the result is a change in the system's total momentum

4. Angular Impulse (units)N*s-area under the force-time curve

5. KinematicsNo units- resistance to change in motion
