Motion and Forces
Broad Concept: Newton's laws of motion and gravitation describe and predict the motion of most objects.
|1.1 ||Distinguish between vector quantities (velocity, acceleration, and force) and scalar quantities (speed and mass).|
|1.2 ||Illustrate how to represent vectors graphically and be able to add them graphically.|
|1.3 ||Distinguish between, and solve problems involving, velocity, speed, and constant acceleration.|
|1.4 ||Create and interpret graphs of motion (position vs. time, speed vs. time, velocity vs. time, constant acceleration vs. time).|
|1.5 ||Explain the relationship between mass and inertia.*|
|1.6 ||Interpret and apply Newton's first law of motion.*|
|1.7 ||Interpret and apply Newton's second law of motion to show how an object's motion will change only when a net force is applied.*|
|1.8 ||Use a free body force diagram with only co-linear forces to show forces acting on an object, and determine the net force on it.|
|1.9 ||Qualitatively distinguish between static and kinetic friction, what they depend on and their effects on the motion of objects.|
|1.10 ||Interpret and apply Newton's third law of motion.|
|1.11|| Understand conceptually Newton's law of universal gravitation. *|
|1.12 ||Identify appropriate standard international units of measurement for force, mass, distance, speed, acceleration, and time, and explain how they are measured.|
