  • Answer 50 questions in 15 minutes.
  • If you are not ready to take this test, you can study here.
  • Match each statement with the correct term.
  • Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.

This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. Initial velocity= the square root of 2gh

2. Voltage / current

3. Shows in 1905 that newtons laws were not valid for objects moving with speeds near the speed of light.

4. A disturbance that propagates through a medium

5. T=2p square root m/k frequency= square root k/m;/2p
