Refer to the following information for the next five questions.
Is the slope of the line graphed above positive or negative?
positive
negative
Using two gridpoints, calculate the numerical value of this line's slope?
What is the equation of this line?
At what time was the velocity of the cart equal to 80 m/sec?
What is the title of this graph?
Velocity vs Time
Time vs Velocity
Refer to the following information for the next seven questions.
Using two gridpoints, calculate this line's slope.
What is this line's y-intercept?
Using your previous two answers, what is the correct equation for this line?
Using your previous answers, use the equation of this line to determine how much force in newtons (abbreviated nts) would be required to cause the given mass to experience an acceleration of 14 m/sec
^{2}
.
On this graph, which variable represents the independent variable?
force
acceleration
What is the correct title for this graph?
force vs acceleration
acceleration vs force
The physics formula that represents the behavior diagrammed on this graph is
net F = ma
, where
net F
equals the sum of the forces acting on the object,
m
represents the object's mass, and
a
represents the object's acceleration. Now, use the parallel structure of this formula alongside your equation for this line to determine the mass of the object being accelerated.
