5 N east

An object is pulled with three forces: one at 20 N to the right, another at 40 N to the right, and the third at 30 N to the left. The net force is

none of the above

A 50-N object falling in air experiences 50 N of air resistance. The amount of net force on the falling object is

0 N

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

Is Zero

Fido weighs 120 N and carries Trixie who weighs 40 N on her back. The support force on Fido's feet is

160 N

When you stand at rest on a floor, the number of vertical forces acting on you is


The force of friction on a sliding object is 10 N. The applied force needed to maintain a constant velocity is

10 N

Nellie runs the length of a 100-yard football field in a time of 20 seconds. Her average running speed is

5 yards/second

When a ball increases in speed by the same amount each second, its acceleration

is constant

At the end of two seconds of free fall, an object released from rest will have a speed of

none of the above

An object in free fall has a speed of 60 m/s. One second later its speed is

70 m/s

An object in motion tends to remain in motion

without the need of a force

A sheet of paper can be pulled from beneath a box of cereal without toppling it if the paper is jerked quickly. This best demonstrates that

the box has inertia

The net force on any object moving at constant velocity is


Newton's second law directly involves


If the mass of an object does not change, a constant net force on the object produces constant


If an object's mass decreases while a constant force acts on it, the acceleration


A tow truck exerts a force of 3000 N on a car that accelerates at 2 m/s2. The mass of the car must be

1500 kg

A girl pulls on a 10-kg wagon with a constant force of 30 N. What is the wagon's acceleration?

3 m/s^2

A 10-kg block is pushed across a friction-free horizontal surface with a horizontal force of 20 N. The acceleration of the block is

2 m/s^2

A 10-kg brick and a 1-kg book are dropped in a vacuum. The acceleration of the 10-kg brick is ****

10 times as much as for the 1-kg book.

A 10-N falling object encounters 4 N of air resistance. The net force on it is


A rock is thrown vertically into the air. At the top of its path, its acceleration is

9.8 m/s^2

A ball is thrown vertically into the air. Because of air resistance, its time coming down compared to its time going up is


When an object falls through the air, as velocity increases its acceleration


A sack of potatoes weighing 200 N falls from an airplane. As the velocity of fall increases, air resistance also increases. When air resistance equals 200 N, the sack's acceleration is


Which of the following statements best describes an element

material consisting of only one type of atom

What is the approximate mass of a carbon atom in atomic mass units (amu)? How about a carbon dioxide molecule?

A carbon atom has a mass of about 12 amu. Carbon dioxide would then have a mass
of 44 amu.

Which contributes more to an atom's mass: electrons or protons? Which contributes more to
an atom's size

mechanical weathering

Minerals are composed of

inorganic solids

are organic

All minerals are

crystalline solids

Most minerals can be identified by easily observable physical properties. In order of most
useful to least useful, the identifiable physical properties are

hardness, cleavage, density, crystal form, and color
