Physics Revision Quiz

There are a whole host of subcategories associated with the study of physics, and they can be quite trying to learn them all – perhaps even impossible. Let’s see how much you do remember, however, in this physics revision test.

    Newton's First Law states that an object continues to be at rest or in a state of uniform motion in a straight line unless acted on by a (c) _____________ ________. What is (c)?
  • 13. 
    The image below shows a truck engine pulling a trailer which is attached to it by a towbar, and the engine thrust is providing an acceleration of 0.1m/s2. The resistive force on the trailer is 5N. Using a free body diagram of the trailer, find the tension in the towbar.  
  • 14. 
    A falling parachutist undergoes freefall acceleration. She experiences air resistance, which increases as her velocity increases. What will happen to the magnitude of air resistance as she falls (increases, decreases, remains the same)?
  • 15. 
    The same parachutist continues to fall downwards. What happens to her acceleration as she falls downwards (increases, decreases, remains the same)?
  • 16. 
    What will happen to her velocity eventually?
