Regents Physics Review #2 Motion, Velocity, Acceleration (See Review Book P. 10-17)
Velocity is the change in displacement per unit time. Velocity is a vector, it must include a direction such as +,-, left, right, up, down, north, south, etc. Speed is simply the change in distance over time regardless of direction. Speed is a scalar. Uniform Velocity = constant velocity; not changing. Average Velocity = Total displacement / Total time Acceleration = change in velocity over time. Acceleration is a vector.

Projectile Motion When you throw an object into the air (projectile): 1. The X component of the velocity is constant (does not change) 2. The Y component of the velocity starts out large, slows down to 0, then increases back to where it started. 3. What goes up, must come down…in the same amount of time. This statement means that if it takes 4 seconds for an object to hit the ground after it is thrown, then the object must have taken 2 seconds to get to the top and 2 seconds to get back to the ground. VyVy VxVx VxVx VxVx VyVy VyVy VyVy VxVx VxVx V y = 0
Summary For projectile motion, remember the following: 1. Time up = Time down. 2.The projectile reaches its highest point midway through its flight. (half the time & half the horizontal distance) 3. At the highest point, the vertical velocity = 0 m/s 4. Gravity affects only the vertical velocity. 5. The horizontal velocity is constant. (stays the same) 6. The shape of the path is a parabola.

Regents Physics Review #3 Newton’s Laws, Forces, Friction (See Review Book P.22-33)
Newton’s First Law of Motion: The Law of Inertia An object will resist any change in its state of motion. An object at rest will stay at rest; an object in motion will stay moving in a straight line at a constant speed unless acted on by an unbalanced force. Mass is the measure of an object’s inertia. Newton’s Second Law of Motion: Force, Mass, and Acceleration An unbalanced force causes an object to accelerate: F = ma Equilibrium: All forces are balanced. Newton’s Third Law of Motion: Action and Reaction For every force there is an equal force in the opposite direction. Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation: All matter attracts other matter. F g = G m 1 m 2 / r 2.
Weight is a force caused by gravity: F = ma F = mg On Earth, g = 9.81 m/s2 Friction is a force that opposes the motion of an object and depends upon the type of surfaces that are in contact with each other. Friction can be: “sliding” or “rolling” “static” or “kinetic” Each surface has its own coefficient of friction.

Momentum: Mass x Velocity Momentum is a vector quantity because velocity is a vector. Formula: p = mv Law of Conservation of Momentum: Total momentum of a system is conserved…all the “pieces” of momentum must be accounted for and add up to the total you started with.
