Wherever there is an action force, there must be a reaction force which:

is exactly equal in magnitude

the force the glove exerts on the ball

player hits ball with bat. action force is impact of bat against ball. the reaction to this force is

the force that the ball exerts on the bat

a baseball player bats a ball with a force of 1000N. the reaction force that the ball exerts against the bat is


As a ball falls, the action force is the pull of the earths mass on the ball. the reaction force is the

agree that it cant be done

400 N

ToF it would be just as hard to shake a bowling ball back and forth on the moon as it is on earth


ToF a cars acceleration can be decreasing while its speed increases at the same time


ToF if a person weighing 600 N hangs from a trapeze supported by 3 ropes, tension on each rope would be 200 N


ToF if a body is traveling with a constant velocity this means there can be no forces acting on it


What is true about motion?

all motion is relative

when you look at the speedometer in a moving car you see the cars

instantaneous speed

which of the following could be considered an accelerator of your car

the gas pedal, brake, and steering wheel

the two measurements necessary for calculating average speed are

distance and time

20 km/h

a car maintains a velocity of 100 km/h for 10 seconds. during this interval its acceleration is


if an object moves with constant acceleration its velocity must

change by the same amount each second

if a car increases its velocity from 0 to 60 km/h in 10 seconds its acceleration is

6 km/h/s

in a car accelerates from rest at 2 meters per second, its speed 3 seconds later will be about


a car accelerates at 2 meters per second from rest, how much time is needed to reach speed of 30 m/s

15 seconds

the force required to maintain a rocket ship at constant velocity in force in free space is equal to


what statement made about inertia is true

it would be easier to lift a bowling ball on the mood than on earth, but just as hard to shake back and forth

ToF it would be possible for the acceleration of a body to be decreasing and yet its velocity increasing


ToF If a linebacker and a horse jockey jump out of a plane at the same time in the presence of air resistance, the jockey will hit the ground first b/c there will be a smaller force of air resistance on him


ToF the reason that bodies fall with same constant acceleration of 10 m/s in absence of air resistance is because the force of gravity is the same on all objects

False b/c w/m ratio is the same

ToF the acceleration of a body falling in the presence of air resistance at terminal velocity is 0 m/s2


ToF If a book is lying motionless on a table top the only force acting on it is the weight of the book


ToF if a body is not accelerating it must be because there are no forces acting on the body


ToF a 10 kg sphere and a 20 kg sphere of the same size are falling in air resistance, the 10 kg sphere will reach terminal velocity first


ToF regarding the two falling spheres the 20 kg sphere will have a greater amount of air resistance at terminal velocity


ToF a push on a 1 kg brick produces an acceleration, neglecting friction to equally accelerate a 20 kg brick one would have to push 10x harder

False, 20x harder

ToF a rock falling in the presence of air resistance reaches terminal velocity in 10 seconds. the rock will fall a greater distance in the 10th second than in the first second of the fall


Which has greater mass a king sized pillow or a car battery

Car battery

a kg is a measure of an objects


an object maintains a constant acceleration unless there is a change in

its mass, the applied force, or the air resistance

your weight is

the gravitational attraction force between you and the earth

a newton is a unit of


a rock weighs 30 N on earth a second rock weighs 30 n on the moon which has a greater mass

the one on the moon

an object is propelled along a straight line path by a force. if the net force were doubled the objects acceleration would be

twice as much

an object is propelled along a straight line path in space by a force. if the mass of the object somehow becomes twice as much its acceleration


a 10 N falling object encounters 4 N of air resistance the net force on the object is

6 N

whenever the net force on an object is zero, its acceleration

is zero

a 1 kg mass at the earths surface weighs

10 N

a car has a mass of 1000 kg and accelerates at 2 meters per second. what is the magnitude of the net force exerted on the car?

2000 N

a tow truck exerts a force of 3000 N on a car, accelerating it at 2 meters per second. what is the mass of the car?

15,000 kg

a girl pulls on a 10 kg wagon with a constant horizontal force of 30 N. If there are no other horizontal forces what is the wagon's acceleration in meters per second per second


a bag of groceries has a mass of 10 kilograms and a weight of

about 100 N

a man weighing 800 N stands at rest on two bathroom scales so his weight is evenly distributed on each scale. each scale reads

greater on the coconut

a skydiver jumps from a high flying plane, as her velocity of fall increases, her acceleration


a skydiver steps from a helicopter and falls for a few seconds until reaching terminal velocity. then he opens his parachute and his acceleration:

is zero

a 500 N parachutist opens his chute and experiences an air resistance force of 800 N. the net force on him is

300 N upward

a feather and a coin will have equal accelerations when falling in a vacuum because

the ratio of each object's weight to its mass is the same

the difference between impulse and impact force involves the

time the force acts

it is correct to say that impulse is equal to

the change in momentum

two objects have the same size and shape but one is much heavier. when dropped simultaneously they reach the ground at the same time, but the heavier one has a greater


a large heavy truck and small carriage roll down a hill. neglecting friction, at the bottom of the hill the carriage will have a greater speed acceleration or momentum?

none of these

in order to catch a ball a baseball player reduces the force of impact on his hand because he

increases the time of impact

by bending your knees when jumping from an elevated position you make the time of impact about 10 times as great. the average force your body experiences is

about 1/10 times as great
