This worksheet is in on Motion chapter 10.1. An object in motion changes position. Answer the following questions based on your textbook p. 313 - 318

• 1.

### (313) The location of an object relative to another object is refering to what word.

• A.

Motion

• B.

Reference point

• C.

Position

• D.

Object

• E.

Change

C. Position
Explanation
The question is asking for the word that refers to the location of an object relative to another object. The word "position" accurately describes the location of an object in relation to another object. It indicates the specific place or point where the object is situated in relation to a reference point. Therefore, "position" is the correct answer.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### (313) Why do you need to discuss two locations to describe the position of an object?

• A.

Because they describe motion.

• B.

• C.

Both are reference points.

• D.

They can't move.

• E.

You need to compare the location of the object with the location of another object.

E. You need to compare the location of the object with the location of another object.
Explanation
To accurately describe the position of an object, it is necessary to compare its location with the location of another object. This allows for a frame of reference and helps determine the relative position and motion of the object in question. By discussing two locations, one can establish a point of comparison and provide a more comprehensive understanding of the object's position.

### (313) practice problem. The trains position is ---------- the tracks?

• A.

Below

• B.

Above

• C.

Beside

• D.

Infront of

• E.

Behind

B. Above
Explanation
The correct answer is "above" because the question is asking about the position of the train in relation to the tracks. If the train is above the tracks, it means that it is positioned higher than the tracks.

### The position of the man with the backpack is....

• A.

In front of the train.

• B.

Below the side walk.

• C.

Above the glass roof

• D.

Beside the front of the train

• E.

Under the plants

D. Beside the front of the train
Explanation
The correct answer is "beside the front of the train." This means that the man with the backpack is located next to the front part of the train, suggesting that he is standing or walking alongside it.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### The position of the train is...

• A.

Outside the station.

• B.

Inside the station.

• C.

Inside the plants.

• D.

Above the sky.

• E.

Inside the lollypop.

B. Inside the station.
Explanation
The correct answer is "inside the station" because the question asks about the position of the train, and being inside the station implies that the train is located within the boundaries of the station. The other options, such as "outside the station," "inside the plants," "above the sky," and "inside the lollypop" are not logical positions for a train.

### (313) An ant crawls across the top of someones finger, from left to right.  This illustrates a change in .....

• A.

Position

• B.

Reference point

• C.

Motion

• D.

Speed

• E.

Area

A. Position
Explanation
This question is asking about what is being illustrated when an ant crawls across the top of someone's finger from left to right. The correct answer is "position" because the ant is changing its location or place as it moves across the finger.

### (314) Brazilia is east of .....

• A.

Rio de janeiro

• B.

• C.

Itaparica

• D.

Cuiaba

• E.

The Atlantic Ocean

D. Cuiaba
Explanation
Cuiaba is the correct answer because Brazilia is located to the east of Cuiaba. The other options, Rio de Janeiro, Corcovado, Itaparica, and the Atlantic Ocean, are not located to the east of Brazilia.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### (314) Guyana is to the north of Brazil.  In this question Brazil is the .....

• A.

Position

• B.

Reference point

• C.

Motion

• D.

Speed

• E.

Time

B. Reference point
Explanation
In this question, Brazil is being used as a reference point to indicate the location of Guyana. The statement states that Guyana is to the north of Brazil, implying that Brazil is being used as a point of reference to determine the direction or position of Guyana. Therefore, the correct answer is "reference point".

### (314) The reference point of an object is...

• A.

It's location

• B.

What you compare the location to.

• C.

It's speed

• D.

Its' time

• E.

Something you find on a map.

B. What you compare the location to.
Explanation
The reference point of an object is what you compare the location to. A reference point is a fixed point or object used to determine the position or movement of another object. It provides a frame of reference for measuring distances, directions, or changes in position. By comparing the location of an object to a reference point, we can determine its position relative to that point. This allows us to describe the object's location accurately and understand its movement or changes in position.

### Tim and Jake see this painting in the side walk.  Tim walks around the painting and Jake walks over it.  Which person walked the shortest distance?

• A.

Tim

• B.

Jake

B. Jake

### (315) Motion ia a measurement for change in.....

• A.

Reference point

• B.

Position

• C.

Motion

• D.

Speed

• E.

Time

B. Position
Explanation
Motion is a measurement for change in position. Motion refers to the movement or displacement of an object from one place to another. It is a fundamental concept in physics that describes the change in an object's location over time. By measuring the change in position, we can quantify the motion of an object and analyze its speed, acceleration, and other related properties.

### (315) the difference between the picture on 315 and a snapshot is that a snapshot on freezes a moment in _____.

time
Explanation
A snapshot freezes a moment in time, capturing a specific moment or scene. Unlike a picture on page 315, which could refer to any kind of picture, a snapshot specifically refers to a photograph taken quickly and informally. The key difference between the two is that a snapshot freezes a moment in time, preserving it for future reference or enjoyment.

### (316) The speed of a moving object is a measure of how quickly or slowly the object changes ____________.

position
Explanation
The speed of a moving object is a measure of how quickly or slowly the object changes its position. Speed is a scalar quantity that only considers the magnitude of the change in position, regardless of the direction. It provides information about how fast an object is moving but does not provide any details about the object's direction or the path it takes. Therefore, speed is solely related to the change in position of the object.

### This bus is traveling at 55mph down the road.  To a person standing on the sidewalk how fast is the bus going?

• A.

0 mph

• B.

55 mph

• C.

110mph

B. 55 mph
Explanation
The bus is traveling at 55 mph down the road. Since the question asks how fast the bus is going to a person standing on the sidewalk, the answer is 55 mph. This is because the speed of the bus is relative to the person on the sidewalk, and from their perspective, the bus is moving at 55 mph.
