False (though true is also an acceptable answer)
True or False: Smashing it into Mr. Gunby's head is a test to identify a mineral.
False (You could tell by smell but you're really supposed to waft it.)
True or False: Smell is a test to identify a mineral.
False (I mean, you could, but depending on what you ate, you might not be around to finish the taste test)
True or False: Eating is a test to identify a mineral.
False (though it would be nice...)
True or False: Burning on a pile of science textbooks is a test to identify a mineral.
True (that's the mineral's luster)
True or False: Observing how it reflects light is a test to identify a mineral.
The ___________ ___________ of a mineral is the way the atoms are arranged and it determines the outward shape of the mineral.
How many times greater is the amplitude of an earthquake with a magnitude of 5 on the Richter scale, compared to one with a magnitude of 6?
How many times greater is the amplitude of an earthquake with a magnitude of 3 on the Richter scale, compared to one with a magnitude of 5?
How many times greater is the amount of energy released in an earthquake with a magnitude of 3 on the Richter scale, compared to one with a magnitude of 4?
This is the primary wave in an earthquake. It is longitudinal and travels faster than the secondary wave.
This is the secondary wave in an earthquake. It is transverse and travels slower than the primary wave.
True (volcanic mountain)
True or False: Mountains can be formed by convergent oceanic and continental plates.
False (But I mean, who knows. Maybe they could)
True or False: Mountains can be formed by elephants.
Step (?) of 3 in the formation of a volcano when plates collide: Magma forms from the oceanic crust melting in the process of subduction.
Step (?) of 3 in the formation of a volcano when plates collide: The magma then rises because it is less dense than the rock around it.
Step (?) of 3 in the formation of a volcano when plates collide: The magma burst out and cools to form a volcano.
__________ volcanoes have very viscous lava (thick). They are tall and pointy and have eruptions of cinder or ash and lava.
_________ _______ volcanoes are loose cinder surrounding a vent. They don't get very tall.
When land collapses into the magma chamber after a volcanic eruption, a _________ is formed.
Pangaea (Mr. Gunby spelled it Pangea. He's wrong. But would he admit it? Nooooooo.)
What is the name of the super continent that existed when all the current continents were one?
True or False: the continents look like if they were slid and rotated that they could fit together like a jigsaw puzzle.
If two unequal forces are acting on an object, the object will move in the direction of the _________ force.
True or False: the roughness of the materials of the objects affects the friction between them.
Mass(es) (and) distance
Gravitational force is affected by the objects' _________ and the __________ between them.
This is Newton's (#) Law: An object at rest will stay at rest unless an outside force is exerted on it. An object in motion will stay in motion unless an outside force is exerted on it.
When a student pushes Mr. Gunby out of an airplane without a parachute, he will accelerate at a rate of?
_______________ force is the force that keeps an object constantly falling and constantly changing direction as it orbits around earth.
Which class of lever changes the direction of the input force and increases either force or distance. Its MA depends on the position of the fulcrum.
Which class of lever increases force but does not change the direction of the input force? The MA is always greater than 1.
Which class of lever increases distance but does not change the direction of the input force. Its MA is always less than 1.
True or False: you can find the IMA of a compound machine by dividing the final output by the initial input.
True or False: you can find the IMA of a compound machine by multiplying all of the IMA's of each simple machine in it together.
True or False: you can find the IMA of a compound machine dividing the initial IMA by the final IMA.
False (well technically false but I'd take true on this one too)
True or False: Frauwinslowthehypergermanteacher Energy is a form of energy.
Charges flow because of:
A. Differences in electric potential energy
B. Similar Voltages
Electrical (into) Mechanical
A generator turns mechanical energy into electrical energy. An electric motor turns ____________ energy into ____________ energy
Direct Current goes in one direction. (ONE DIRECTION!!!!) Alternating current ??????
(the) Doppler Effect
What is it called when the pitch you hear changes because of your position in relation to the source of the sound?
The ___________ of a wave affects its pitch. The _________ affects its loudness.
Diffuse, Regular (It can be a diffuse or regular reflection. If it is diffuse, the light will reflect in all directions because the surface is rough. If it is regular, it will reflect with precise angles because the surface is smooth.)
List the two ways light can be reflected
(A) Virtual Image (It is upright and the same size as the original but left and right are reversed)
Plane mirrors are flat. What kind of image do they create?
False (the opposite)
A concave mirror can produce either a real or virtual image. True or False: If the object is past the focal point, a virtual image will be formed. If it is between the focal point and the mirror, a real image will be formed.
A convex mirror produces a (real/virtual) image that is always (smaller/larger) than the original object.
Enters a new medium. (This is because of a change in speed)
Refraction occurs when a ray of light ???
Seeing An Image: When light enters your cornea, an up-side down image is produced on your ????
Seeing An Image: ________ work best in bright light to help you see an image. They detect color.
Cones (and) Rods
Seeing An Image: _________ and __________ work together to turn the image on your retina into signals to send to your brain.
