The displacement of the particle does not depend on
1. A particle travels along a curved path between two points P and Q as shown. The displacement of the particle does not depend on the location of P. the location of Q. the distance traveled from P to Q. the shortest distance between P and Q. the direction of Q from P.

2. If the average velocity of a particle is zero in some time interval, what can you say about its displacement for that interval? It is a scalar quantity It can be either positive or negative It is zero It has direction but no magnitude

3. Which one of the following situations is not possible?
A body travels with a northward velocity and a northward acceleration. A body travels with a northward velocity and a southward acceleration. A body travels with a constant velocity and a time-varying acceleration. A body travels with a constant acceleration and a time-varying velocity.

4. What motion is represented by the red line in the graph below?
A ball is thrown straight up from a pit and caught at ground level. A ball is moving in the negative direction and slows to a stop. A ball speeds up in the negative direction. A ball starts at a negative position and moves with constant velocity to the zero position. velocity time + -

5. A ball is thrown into the air
5. A ball is thrown into the air. At the ball’s maximum altitude where its velocity is zero, its acceleration is zero changing from upward to downward changing from downward to upward directed upward directed downward

6. In which part of the graph is the object’s velocity zero. a. AB b

7. In which part of the graph does the object have a negative velocity
7. In which part of the graph does the object have a negative velocity? a. AB b. BC c. CD d. DE e. Two are correct.

8. The velocity of the object during part CD is a. 6 m/s b. 8 m/s c
8. The velocity of the object during part CD is a. 6 m/s b. 8 m/s c. 10 m/s d. 40 m/s e. Two are correct.

9. During which time interval did the object have a positive velocity
9. During which time interval did the object have a positive velocity? a. AB b. BC c. CD d. DE e. Two are correct.

The following graphs show how the velocity of a car changes over time.
