\Title Doumentation Demo 8/11/98 What Will AppletQuiz Do? \TF A T When an object falling through the air reaches its terminal velocity, its {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=BOLD acceleration}} will be 0 m/s{\$EXP 2}. \HINT Terminal velocity is a {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC constant}} velocity.   Acceleration is the {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC rate of change}} of velocity. \WHY Acceleration measures the {\$STYLE=BOLD {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC rate of change}}} of an object's velocity.   When an object is moving at terminal velocity its velocity is {\$STYLE=BOLD {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC not changing}}} . Therefore, its acceleration is 0 m/s/s. \FF A 0 When an object falling through the air reaches its terminal velocity, its {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=BOLD acceleration}} will be ____ m/s{\$EXP 2}. \HINT Terminal velocity is a {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC constant}} velocity.   Acceleration is the {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC rate of change}} of velocity. \WHY Acceleration measures the {\$STYLE=BOLD {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC rate of change}}} of an object's velocity.   When an object is moving at terminal velocity its velocity is {\$STYLE=BOLD {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC not changing}}} . Therefore, its acceleration is 0 m/s/s. \MC A A B 2 When an object falling through the air reaches its terminal velocity, its {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=BOLD acceleration}} will be about: A. 0 m/s/s B. 2 m/s/s C. 10 m/s/s D. It depends on the object's weight. E. It depends on the object's mass. \HINT Terminal velocity is a {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC constant}} velocity.   Acceleration is the {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC rate of change}} of velocity. \WHY Acceleration measures the {\$STYLE=BOLD {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC rate of change}}} of an object's velocity.   When an object is moving at terminal velocity its velocity is {\$STYLE=BOLD {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=ITALIC not changing}}} . Therefore, its acceleration is 0 m/s/s. \FF In 1830, the early American locomotive named __________ lost a race with a horse. \A Tom Thumb \MC A A B A A line from the novel {\$STYLE=ITALIC My Antonia}, by Willa Cather is:   {\$FONT=COURIER {\$COLOR=RED Her rapid footsteps shook her own floors, and she routed {\$STYLE=BOLD lassitude} and indifference wherever she came.}}   {\$COLOR=RED {\$STYLE=BOLD Lassitude}} could best be defined as: A. a condition of weariness B. antagonism C. ability to evade responsibility D. resistance \HINT Try to figure out the meaning of {\$STYLE=BOLD lassitude} from its context in the sentence. Notice that it is paired with "indifference". \WHY {\$STYLE=BOLD lassitude}: (noun) A state of listless weakness or exhaustion. (from the Latin {\$STYLE=ITALIC lassus}, meaning tired or weary. [source: {\$STYLE=UNDER The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language}, Dell Publishing Co., 1980] \MC A B B A Kommen sie bitte an: A. der tafel. B. die tafel. C. das tafel. D. dat tafel. E. tafel. \TF A F {\$img="Images/menOfThedocks1912.GIF" align=center} The painting "Men of the Docks" (1912) was painted by the famous American artist Winslow Homer. \HINT The artist who painted "Men of the Docks" was a prominent member of the so-called "Ashcan School" which flourished in and around New York City at the turn of the 20th century. The Ashcan School got its name for its members' penchant for painting scenes of everyday urban life. \WHY George Bellows painted "Men of the Docks" in 1912. \MC A C According to Gauss, the number {\$IMG=Images/Gauss1.GIF align=middle} is an estimate of: A. the percent of people who will live more than x years. B. the time it takes the Sun to give off x Joules of energy. C. the number of primes less than x. D. the age of the Universe. E. the number of factors of x. \MC A B B 1 Name the compound CH{\$SUB 2}CICH(CH{\$SUB 2}CH{\$SUB 3})CHCH {\$SUB 2}. A. chloro-4-methyl-pentene B. 1-chloro-2-ethyl-3-butene C. 4-chloro-3-ethyl-1-butene D. 3-chloro-3-methyl-1-pentene E. none of these \FF A 18.203 On {\$STYLE=ITALIC Star Trek}, the warp drive of the Starship Enterprise was rated at 1.8203 x10{\$EXP 10} horsepower. This equals _______ billion horsepower. \HINT 1 billion = 1 000 000 000 = 1.0 x 10{\$EXP 9} \WHY 1.8203 x 10{\$EXP 10} hp = 1.8203 x 10 x 10{\$EXP 9} hp = 1.8203 x 10 billion hp = 18.203 billion hp \FF {\$A=rni(1,9)}{\$B=rni(1,9)}How much is {\$SIZE=18 {\$A} + {\$B}}? \A {\$A + B} \FF {\$A=rni(2,8)}{\$m=10*rni(1,9)}What net force (in Newtons) will be required to accelerate a mass of {\$m} kg at {\$a} m/s {\$exp 2}? \A {\$m*a} \HINT URL=http://www.batesville.k12.in.us/physics/PhyNet/ Mechanics/Newton2/Newton2.html#TheLaw \WHY Newton's Second Law: F{\$sub net} = ma = ({\$m} kg)({\$a} m/s{\$exp 2}) = {\$m*a} Newtons
