Rank in order, from the most to the least, the number of significant figures in the following numbers. For example, if b has more than c, c has the same number as a, and a has more than d, you could give your answer as b > c = a > d. a b c d 1. d > c > b = a 2. a = b = d > c 3. b = d > c > a 4. d > c > a > b 5. b > a = c = d STT1.5

What quantities are shown on a complete motion diagram?
1. The position of the object in each frame of the film, shown as a dot 2. The average velocity vectors (found by connecting each dot in the motion diagram to the next with a vector arrow) 3. The average acceleration vectors (there is one acceleration vector linking each two velocity vectors) 4. All of the above IG1.2

An acceleration vector
1. tells you how fast an object is going. 2. is constructed from two velocity vectors. 3. is the second derivative of the position. 4. is parallel or opposite to the direction of motion. 5. Acceleration vectors weren’t discussed in this chapter. IG1.3
