  • 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. Velocity squared / radius

2. Voltage / current

3. ?

4. Initial velocity= the square root of 2gh

5. Pascal (Pa) or pounds per square inch (psi)

6. Maximum displacement from equilibrium

7. Why things move

8. 10 m/s^2

9. A disturbance that propagates through a medium

10. The amount of heat that is required to raise the temperature of one g of a substance by 1 degree C.

11. Net force=0 net torque=0

12. You can't get more work out than the energy you put in

13. Heat Q= mass of sample x specific heat x temp change

23. Compiled the first detailed observational data on planetary motion (mars) - without a telescope.

24. Analized brahe's data and verified the heliocentric theory. These regularities are known as Helpers Laws of Planetary motion.

25. 9/5T(C)+32

26. Work done / heat in

27. Are wider at the base (which lowers their center of gravity)

28. The change in internal energy= the heat absorbed- the work done

29. A disturbance that moves through something

30. Velocity squared / radius

31. The heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 pound of water by 1 degree F

32. If the temperature of system A is less then the temperature of system B then heat flows from B to A (hot to cold)

33. A disturbance that moves through something

34. C / f

35. The first to do experimental studies of the laws of motion and was Imprisoned by Pope Urban VIII in 1633 for advocating the Copernican theory - also know as the heliocentric theory - that the earth was a planet revolving around the sun.

36. Work done / heat in

37. Fbottom=Ftop+mg where mg is the weight of the volume

38. Length of a wave

39. Distance traveled / time

40. Mass x gravity
