A stoplight 20 m to the west turns yellow. Your car is traveling west at 12 m/s. You hit the brakes and decelerate at a rate of 6.0 m/s 2. Your car stops before it reaches the stoplight (which is considered to be at the origin). A student in a physics class made a picture of this. t o = 0 s x o = + 20 m v o = – 12 m/s a = – 6.0 m/s 2 Which of the following is labeled wrong? 1x o 2v o 3a 4a & v o 5all of the values are correct x Did the student mislabel anything?

A student in a physics class made a picture of the situation but did not include the signs of the variables. t o = 0 s x o = __ 20 m v o = __ 12 m/s a = __ 6.0 m/s 2 What are the signs of the three missing variables? xo voa1+––2+–+3++–4+++5––+xo voa1+––2+–+3++–4+++5––+ x A stoplight 20 m to the west turns yellow.

Your car is traveling west at 12 m/s. You hit the brakes and decelerate at a rate of 6.0 m/s 2. Your car stops before it reaches the stoplight (which is considered to be at the origin). Construct a position versus time graph that is the best representation of the car’s motion.

A hot air balloon is stationary in the sky as seen in the picture. A person throws a ball up in the air at 5 m/s. Which set of mathematical representations best matches this process? 1.V f = (5.0 m/s) + (10 m/s 2 ) t 2.V f = ( - 5.0 m/s) + (10 m/s 2 ) t 3.V f = (5.0 m/s) + ( - 10 m/s 2 ) t 4.V f = ( - 5.0 m/s) + ( - 10 m/s 2 ) t 5.Either 2 or 3 are correct Construct a mathematical representation that best matches this process.

Which description best represents this situation? 1This is a car that is moving to the right and is accelerating in the same direction. 2A ball was thrown upwards in the air at a speed of 20 m/s. 3A ball was thrown downwards at a height of 5 m at a speed of 20 m/s. Susy sees the mathematical representation below in her physics book. Construct a verbal description that best represents this situation.

1.Yes, all three diagrams are consistent. 2.No, Diagram A is not consistent with the other two. 3.No, Diagram B is not consistent with the other two. 4.No, Diagram C is not consistent with the other two. Are these three diagrams consistent with each other? Alan sees the following three diagrams next to each other in his physics book. x t v t a t A CB
