___1. Wrote the laws that we use to describe motion, Force, and gravity. ___2. When forces are balanced (net force=0).

II. Metric Conversions (2) 75mL = ___________________L

       50mN = ___________________kN
       61g = ___________________mg	      
       220kL = ___________________L
       0.25cm = __________________mm   	
       348mL = ___________________cm3	
       6.5ms = ___________________s    	
       3kg = ___________________g
       1km = ___________________m		
       21km = ___________________cm

III. Why? Put a 1, 2, or 3 in each blank to tell us which of Newton's Laws this statement typifies. (2) ___If you apply a force to an object, it will accelerate. ___If you stop pedaling, you keep moving forward anyway. ___If you kick a bowling ball, it doesn't budge. ___If you kick a bowling ball, it hurts your foot. ___If you push a bowling ball just right, it goes. ___You push backward on the floor to walk forward.

IV. Problems – Vector Diagrams will be helpful for most. (5) ____________1. How much would a 60kg boulder weigh on the Moon where g= -1.7m/s2? (All other problems are assumed to be occurring on Earth.)

____________2. What is the weight of a 300g rock?

____________3. What is the mass of an 89N radio?

____________4. If a surface has a coefficient of friction of 0.87, and there is an object pressed against the surface with a force of 90N, what is the force of friction?

____________5. If there is a 60kg plow that must be pushed to the barn over an ice field with a coefficient of sliding friction of 0.15, how much force must the person use in order to accelerate the object at 1.8m/s2 if the plow is already slightly moving to start with?

____________6. If a helicopter with mass 3850kg is climbing at a rate of 5m/s2, find the force being exerted by the rotor atop the helicopter. (Think: would the rotor need to apply a force to make the helicopter hover?)

____________7. When a board sitting on the floor is raised to a 25o angle above the floor a moving hammer slides down the board with constant velocity. If the hammer has a mass of 1.2kg, what is the coefficient of sliding friction between the hammer and the board?

8. (Show all work) If a pulley system with two masses attached, one being 20kg and the other being 75kg, is released, what will happen to the objects? _______________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________________

V. Compare and contrast mass and weight. (10)
