5 An army ranger is lifted by a cable to a helicopter at a constant velocity? FgFT – FgFg – FT
6 A bike is coasting to a stop. What is the net force equal to? Gravitational ForceZeroFrictional ForceNormal Force
7 Which of the following is the tendency of an object to maintain its state of motion? accelerationinertiaforcevelocity
8 An object with a mass of 100kg has what weight in Newtons? 9.8980500
9 With a constant applied force, mass is directly proportional to acceleration. This statement describes which of Newton’s Laws?1st2nd3rdNone of the above
10 If a nonzero net force is acting on an object, then the object is definitely at rest.moving with a constant velocity.being accelerated.losing mass.
11 Which are simultaneously equal but opposite forces resulting from the interaction of two objects? net external forcesfield forcesgravitational forcesaction-reaction pairs
12 What is not true regarding action reaction forces? They are an application of Newton’s 3rd Law.They act on the same object.They act on different objects.All are true.
13 The magnitude of the force of gravity acting on an object is frictional force.weight.inertia.mass.
14 In the terminology “a 500-N block”, the 500-N refers most specifically to the block's: mass.force.weight.None of the above.
15 It is generally easier to overcome friction when an object is moving than at rest because … µk is greater than µsµs is greater than µkFg increases when an object movesFg decreases when an object moves
16 As a car coasts on a level road yet slows down, the net force acting on the tires is: greater than the normal force times the coefficient of static friction.equal to the normal force times the coefficient of static friction.the normal force times the coefficient of kinetic friction.zero.
17 If an object changes its direction of motion: the mass of the object had to change.the inertia of the object had to change.the speed of the object stays the same.a force must have been applied to the object.
18 If no forces are acting on an object, its motion will: continue in the same direction with the same speed.slow down and eventually stop.continue at the same speed but could change direction.continue in the same direction but could change speed.
19 If the net force is negative and the speed is positive: the speed will decrease over time.the speed will increase over time.the speed will stay the same.the speed will immediately drop to zero.
