Physics
Period 2
Pg. 25 1,2,3,4,5

1. Which of the following graphs best matches the data shown below?
(C)
2) Which of the following equations best matches the data from item 1?
(A)
3) Indicate which of the following physics symbols denote units and which denote
variables or quantities.
(a.)
4) Determine the units of the quantity described by the following combinations of
units.a. kg(m/s) (1/s)b. (kg/s) (m/s2)c. (kg/s) (m/s)2d. (kg/s) (m/s)
5) Which of the following is the best order of magnitude estimate in meters of the
height of a mountain? D. 1000 m

Pg. 27 5,6,7,8,9,10

5) List an appropriate SI base unit (with a prefix as needed) for measuring the
following:
a. the time it takes to play a CD in your stereo. 1 hour
b. the mass of a sports car. 1000 kg
c. the length of a soccer field. 200 m
d. the diameter of a large pizza. 50 cm
e. the mass of a single slice of pepperoni. 1 gram
f. a semester at your school. 90 days
g. the distance from your home to your school. 10 km
h. your mass. 90 kg
i. the length of your physics lab room. 10 m
j. your height. 1.7 m
6) If you square the speed expressed in meters per second, in what units will the
answer be expressed? Meters per second per second
7) If you divide a force measured in newtons by a speed expressed in meters per
second, in what units will the answer be expressed?
8) The height of a horse is sometimes given in units of \u201chands\u201d. Why was this a poor
standard of length before it was redefined to refer to exactly 4 inches? Not everyone
has the same size hands.
9)Explain the advantages in having the meter officially defined in terms of the
distance light travels in a given time rather than as the length of a specific metal bar.
Not everyone will have access to the metal bar therefore we wont be able to measure
in meters. If light is defined in meters, we can understand how fast light is.
10) Einstein\u2019s famous equation indicates that E= mc squared, where c is the speed of
light and m is the object\u2019s mass. Given this, what is the SI unit for E?
