Test 3 will cover the material presented in modules 8 - 10.
You must be able to:
- Find the center of mass of a system.
- Use the equation of rotational kinematics to describe the motion of an
object under constant angular acceleration.
- Find the moment of inertia about an axis of a simple system of point
- Find the angular acceleration and the change of the angular momentum produced by a
- Find the torque produced by a force.
- Use conservation of angular momentum to solve physics problems.
- Find the kinetic energy of rotating objects.
- Solve for the forces and torques acting on an object in static equilibrium.
- Use Kepler's laws to analyze orbital motion.
- Work problems concerning the motion of objects exhibiting simple harmonic
- Describe transverse and longitudinal harmonic waves mathematically and
give the relation between wavelength, frequency, and speed.
- Analyze standing waves on a string and standing sound waves in tubes with
one or two open ends.
- Qualitatively describe water waves, tsunamis, and tides.
- Find the Doppler shifted frequency the observer measures when source or
observer are in motion.
Prepare for the test by reviewing assignments 17 - 24.
Please take the practice tests on Canvas. You can take these tests as often as you want.
No score is kept. Each problem contains hints for incorrect answers.
During the test you can use a calculator, the
formula sheet, scratch paper and copies of the fundamental constants and
conversions provided on Blackboard under course materials.
