Question 1
Question
Over the time frame shown, the cart is:
Answer

continually speeding up

moving at constant velocity

speeding up, then slowing down

slowing down, then changing direction, then speeding up
Question 2
Question
Calculate the slope of the line and determine the appropriate units for the slope. .
Slope = [blank_start]answer[blank_end]
Question 3
Question
Calculate the area under the curve.
Area = [blank_start]0[blank_end] m
Question 4
Question
How would you complete this sentence?
The area under the curve represents the [blank_start]________________[blank_end] of the cart from zero until six seconds.
Question 5
Question
If you were to draw an Acceleration versus Time graph for this motion, which of the following would best describes the slope of your graph?
Question 6
Question
Calculate the area under your Acceleration versus Time curve.
Area = [blank_start]1.2[blank_end] m/s
Question 7
Question
A biker is moving along a straight road as shown.
The three graphs represent the motion of the biker during three training exercises, A, B, and C.
Rank the magnitude of the instantaneous acceleration of the biker at the time indicated by the points on the graphs.
Question 8
Question
A galloping horse has a speed of 12 m/s at t = 0. After 50 s its speed is 8 m/s.
Draw a VelocityTime graph on your own paper to represent the motion of the horse and use the graph to answer the following two questions. Assume that the acceleration of the horse is uniform.
Use your graph to calculate the displacement of the horse.
Question 9
Question
A galloping horse has a speed of 12 m/s at t = 0. After 50 s its speed is 8 m/s.
Draw a VelocityTime graph on your own paper to represent the motion of the horse and use the graph to answer the following two questions. Assume that the acceleration of the horse is uniform.
Use your graph to calculate the average acceleration of the horse.
Answer

– 0.08 m/s^2

+ 0.08 m/s^2

+ 0.24 m/s^2

– 0.24 m/s^2
Question 10
Question
The Acceleration versus Time graph below represents the motion of a hockey player.
Use the graph to determine the change in velocity of the player from 2 to 16 s.
Answer

0 m/s

4.0 m/s

5.6 m/s

6.4 m/s
Question 11
Question
A tennis ball is thrown up in the air and caught on the way down. A student draws the two graphs (A and B) that show the Velocity versus Time of the motion of the ball. Which graph shows the greater magnitude of the displacement of the ball?
Answer

Graph B shows greater magnitude of displacement than Graph A

Graph A shows greater magnitude of displacement than Graph B

Graphs A and B show the same magnitude of displacement

Magnitude of displacement cannot be determined from these graphs
