You have one cylinder with
a volume of 100 cm3. What would be the volume of a second cylinder if the
radius was 20% bigger and the height was reduced to 80% 2.
The formula for universal
gravity is defined by this equation. , where G is a
constant, M1 is the first mass, M2 is the second mass, R is the separation
distance and Fg is the force of gravity. If the force of gravity between two
large objects is 500N. Determine the force of gravity if the mass of the
first object increase by 43%, the mass of the second object decreases to 87%
and the separation distance decrease to a third. 


PRACTICE QUIZ: Practice Quiz Measurement and analysis(Feb 2013)

(Vectors Scalers 2) also, the solution for question 4 can also
be found here. This was solved using
the trig functionality of a spreadsheet programs. In this case, Googledocs.
Use this as a model to create your own vector addition calculator. Note: Solving vectors using components: Vectors
(Components) Additional Vector Questions: Find the displacement of the following
vectors Find the following displacement (resultant)
of the following. A car travels [N20°W] for 75km, then travels [W30°N] for
50km, then [S30°E] for102km, then [E25°N] for 200km, then finally [E75°S]
50km. Sketch a vector diagram first then solve using the component method.
Compare your solution to your diagram and compare. Was your diagram a good
approximation or was it significantly off?

Making connections activity: This activity is designed to show students how much energy the
average vehicle consumes on a typical commute Students were to research their family vehicle to determine the mass
of their largest vehicle Then using Gmaps Pedometer determine distance of a typical commute. In our example we used a
commute from the North end to the South end of the city Based on this commute, the students were to estimate the number of
possible stops en route to work. (i.e lights, stop signs, etc) The following assumes were made. the maximum speed was 60kmh Overall efficiency was approximately 5.8% Check
out the consumption calculations here: Energy Consumption Calculation (Google Sheets)
