A concise 1-page quiz
worth 16 points that provides a review of gravitational potential energy (GPE=mgh)
and kinetic energy (KE=1/2MV2)
calculations through a series of 5 word problems
. The word problems are equally divided between solving for variables using the GPE and KE equations.
This is quiz 2 of a 3 quiz set.
- 1 review question that asks students to write down the formulas for GPE and KE, as well as the base SI units for the variables in each equation
- 5 leveled word problems (all designed to use significant figures, see below)
- Full, color-coded answer key
NOTE: Significant Figures Included!
All problems are designed to involve correct significant figures
and have corresponding answer keys that also include “sig figs”. Feel free to modify the document if this is not part of your curriculum!
Downloadable in 2 Formats!
