Product Description
Here is a useful worksheet we have used to review velocity, acceleration and forces.
A driver spots a cute furry bunny crossing the street directly up the road. The driver does not want to hit the bunny. He firmly applies his brakes and finally comes to a stop. I ask the following
A. What was the momentum of the car just prior to braking?
B. What was the average speed of the car during it deceleration from A to B?
C. If the car traveled a distance d before stopping, how many seconds did it take?
D. What was the cars acceleration (actually deceleration) during this time?
E. What must have been the Force F that brings the car to a stop.
We then calculate these same variables for 2 other speeds. I then ask them to bar graph the results. Good luck. All worksheets are ones we have used in class. This is a early page of a physical science workbook coming out in June 2017 by Scorton Creek. I hope this helps you. Thank you for trying our products
