Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Which of Newton's Three Laws does the following statement satisfy? The relationship between an object's mass (m), its acceleration (a), and the applied force F is F=ma. Acceleration and force are vectors. This law requires that the direction of the acceleration vector is in the same direction as the force vector.
    • A. 

      A: Newton's First Law

    • B. 

      B: Newton's Second Law

    • C. 

      C: Newton's Third Law

    • D. 

      D: All of the above

  • 2. 
    Which of Newton's Three Laws does the following statement satisfy? For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
    • A. 

      A: Newton's First Law

    • B. 

      B: Newton's Second Law

    • C. 

      C: Newton's Third Law

    • D. 

      D: All of the above

  • 3. 
    Which of Newton's Three Laws does the following statement satisfy? Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.
    • A. 

      A: Newton's First Law

    • B. 

      B: Newton's Second Law

    • C. 

      C: Newton's Third Law

    • D. 

      D: All of the above

  • 4. 
    Which of Newton's three laws does the following example illustrate? If you have a hockey puck sliding along a table, it will eventually come to a stop.
    • A. 

      A: Newton's First Law

    • B. 

      B: Newton's Second Law

    • C. 

      C: Newton's Third Law

    • D. 

      D: All of the above

  • 5. 
    Which of Newton's Laws does this situation represent? Imagine a ball moving in a straight line directly toward when another ball collides with it. The moving ball exerts a force on the ball at rest. This causes the ball at rest to accelerate. However, the ball at rest also exerts the same magnitude of force (in the opposite direction) of the moving ball. This will cause the moving ball to decelerate or even move in another direction.
    • A. 

      A: Newton's First Law

    • B. 

      B: Newton's Second Law

    • C. 

      C: Newton's Third Law

    • D. 

      D: all of the above

  • 6. 
    In the following example, what are the forces that are acting on the ball? Check all that apply. If a ball is thrown in the air, it will keep going the same velocity unless a force changes the velocity (speed and direction). Mark all that apply.
    • A. 

      A: air friction

    • B. 

      B: gravity

    • C. 

      C: resistance of the ground

    • D. 

      D: mass of the ball

  • 7. 
    Which law states the need to wear seat belts?
    • A. 

      A: Newton's First Law

    • B. 

      B: Newton's Second Law

    • C. 

      C: Newton's Third Law

    • D. 

      D: none of the above

  • 8. 
    __[Blank]__  ___[Blank]___  __[Blank]______ was the scientist who gave us the Laws of Motion.
  • 9.

    • A. 

      A: Newton's First Law

    • B. 

      B: Newton's Second Law

    • C. 

      C: Newton's Third Law

    • D. 

      D: All of the above
