### A sheet of paper can be withdrawn from under a container of milk without toppling it if the paper is jerked quickly. This best demonstrates that

• A.

The milk carton has no acceleration

• B.

There is an action-reaction pair of forces

• C.

Gravity tends to hold the milk carton secure

• D.

The milk carton has inertia

• E.

None of these

D. The milk carton has inertia
Explanation
The correct answer is that the milk carton has inertia. Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion. In this case, when the paper is jerked quickly, the milk carton tends to stay in place due to its inertia. This is because the milk carton wants to remain at rest, and the force applied by the paper is not enough to overcome its inertia and cause it to topple. This demonstrates the concept of inertia, which is the property of matter that resists changes in motion.

A property of mechanical equilibrium

• D.

All of these

• E.

None of these

B. The gravitational attraction between you and the earth.
Explanation
The correct answer is "the gravitational attraction between you and the earth." This is because weight is the force exerted on an object due to gravity. It is directly proportional to the mass of the object and the acceleration due to gravity. In this case, the weight refers to the gravitational force between the person and the Earth, which is the reason why we feel weight on the surface of the Earth.

### An object weights 30 N on Earth. A second object weighs 30 N on the moon. Which has the greater mass?

• A.

The one on earth.

• B.

The one on the moon

• C.

They have the same mass

• D.

Not enough information to say

B. The one on the moon
Explanation
The object on the moon has a greater mass. Weight is a measure of the force exerted on an object due to gravity, and it is dependent on the mass of the object and the strength of the gravitational field. Since both objects have the same weight, but the gravitational field on the moon is weaker than on Earth, the object on the moon must have a greater mass to counterbalance the weaker gravitational force.

### It is a measure of how fast an object moves fast.

acceleration
Explanation
Acceleration is a measure of how fast an object's velocity changes over time. It indicates the rate at which an object speeds up, slows down, or changes direction. It is not a measure of how fast an object moves in general, but rather how quickly its velocity is changing. Therefore, acceleration is the correct answer for this question.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion.

inertia
Explanation
Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion. This means that an object at rest will stay at rest, and an object in motion will continue moving at a constant speed and direction, unless acted upon by an external force. Inertia is a property of matter and is related to the mass of an object. The greater the mass, the greater the inertia, and the harder it is to change the object's motion. Inertia is a fundamental concept in physics and helps explain why objects behave the way they do.

### When the acceleration of a falling object is 9.8 m/s2 it is in ________.

free fall
freefall
Explanation
When the acceleration of a falling object is 9.8 m/s^2, it is in free fall or freefall. This means that the object is only influenced by the force of gravity and is not experiencing any other external forces, such as air resistance. In free fall, the object is accelerating downwards at a rate of 9.8 m/s^2, regardless of its mass. This concept is often used to describe the motion of objects falling near the surface of the Earth.

### It is the path followed by a projectile.

trajectory
Explanation
Trajectory refers to the path followed by a projectile, such as a bullet or a ball, as it moves through the air or space. It describes the curve or arc that the object takes from its initial position to its final destination. The term trajectory is commonly used in physics and ballistics to analyze and predict the motion of projectiles.

Rate this question:

• 10.

### It is the shape of a projectile's trajectory.

parabola
parabolic
Explanation
The shape of a projectile's trajectory is a parabola. A parabola is a U-shaped curve that is symmetric and opens either upwards or downwards. In the case of a projectile, such as a ball thrown into the air, its path follows a parabolic trajectory due to the force of gravity. The projectile starts with an upward motion, reaches its highest point, and then falls back down in a curved path. Therefore, parabola is the correct answer to describe the shape of a projectile's trajectory.

### When the net force is equal to zero the system is in ______.

mechanical equilibrium
Explanation
When the net force acting on a system is equal to zero, it means that all the forces acting on the system are balanced and cancel each other out. In this state, the system is said to be in mechanical equilibrium. This means that there is no acceleration or change in motion occurring in the system. The forces are in equilibrium, resulting in a stable and balanced state.

### It is inertia in motion.

momentum
Explanation
Momentum is defined as the quantity of motion an object has. It is a property of moving objects and is directly proportional to the mass and velocity of the object. Inertia, on the other hand, is the tendency of an object to resist changes in its motion. In this context, "inertia in motion" refers to the concept of momentum, as it implies that an object with momentum will continue to move in the same direction unless acted upon by an external force. Therefore, the correct answer for this question is momentum.

### Collision where colliding objects collide without lasting deformation or generation of heat.

elastic collision
elastic
Explanation
An elastic collision refers to a collision between objects where there is no lasting deformation or generation of heat. In an elastic collision, the kinetic energy of the system is conserved, meaning that the total energy before the collision is equal to the total energy after the collision. This implies that the objects bounce off each other without any loss of energy. Therefore, the given answer of "elastic collision" accurately describes a collision where colliding objects collide without lasting deformation or generation of heat.

### A quantity that can be described as having magnitude only.

scalar
scalar quantity
Explanation
A scalar is a quantity that can be described solely by its magnitude, without any direction. Scalar quantities do not have any associated vectors or directions. They only have a numerical value or magnitude, such as temperature, mass, or time. Therefore, the terms "scalar" and "scalar quantity" both refer to a quantity that lacks direction and can be described by its magnitude alone.

Rate this question:

• 21.

### A quantity that can be described as having both magnitude and direction.

vector quantity
vector
Explanation
A vector quantity is a quantity that has both magnitude and direction. It is used to describe physical quantities such as displacement, velocity, and force. Vectors are represented by arrows, where the length of the arrow represents the magnitude and the direction of the arrow represents the direction. In contrast, scalar quantities only have magnitude and no direction. Therefore, the correct answer is vector quantity or simply vector.

### Law stating that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force and inversely proportional to mass.Law of __________.

acceleration
Explanation
The law stating that the acceleration of an object is directly proportional to the force and inversely proportional to mass is known as Newton's second law of motion. According to this law, the acceleration of an object is equal to the force applied to it divided by its mass. This means that the greater the force applied to an object, the greater its acceleration will be, and the greater the mass of the object, the smaller its acceleration will be for a given force.

### It is the slope of a distance versus time graph.

speed
velocity
Explanation
The slope of a distance versus time graph represents the rate at which an object is changing its position over time. This can be interpreted as the speed of the object, which is the magnitude of its velocity. Velocity, on the other hand, includes both the speed and the direction of the object's motion. Therefore, both speed and velocity can be determined by analyzing the slope of a distance versus time graph.
