DCUUPIC ICDL 1 raga 1 U1 1 Sample Test 1 The following test is provided for your convenience only It in no way implies coverage or level of dif culty for any test that you may take in your class It is simply provided as a means for you to assess your facility with the material in lectures 1 through 5 The answers to the test questions not the solutions can be accessed by a navigation button at the end of this test Sample TEST 1 The following test consists of two parts Part 1 contains 10 multiplechoice problems worth 3 points each Circle the letter of the best answer You should spend no more than 10 minutes on the multiplechoice problems Part 11 contains 5 problems worth a total of 70 points There will be no partial credit awarded for the multiplechoice problems To receive full credit on the problems all reasoning must be shown and your answers must have the appropriate units Start your problem solutions by writing down the basic de nitions or equations that you are using in your solution using symbols Keep numbers out of your equations until as late in your solutions as possible This will increase the likelihood of receiving partial credit for your solution Be careful be concise but be complete You have 50 minutes to complete this exam Budget your time accordingly PART 1 Multiple Choice Choose the best answer 3 points each 1 The instantaneous velocity is the same as the average velocity when a the direction doesn t change b the acceleration is zero c the Change in velocity is uniform d the velocity reaches a maximum value e the velocity is zero 2 What condition must be met in order for the four kinematic equations to be valid a The acceleration must be constant b The acceleration must be zero 0 The velocity must be constant 1 The velocity must be zero e The motion must be uniform 3 You walk 5 m to the right in the positive x direction then immediately turn around and walk back to where you started This whole process takes you 12 5 What was your average

and VA vs I graphs Let s say that we are looking at an x vs I graph We notice that it starts off curved and then reaches a region of constant slope that is a straightline region What can you conclude about the object s motion a It has a constant acceleration so the kinematic equations can be applied b It starts off with a nonzero acceleration and then reaches a constant velocity region c It starts oft with a constant velocity and then reaches a constant acceleration region d Its velocity is approximately unifonn throughout the region studied e Only that its motion is lD and always positive 9 You and a friend are leaning over a high balcony each of you is holding a baseball You each throw your baseball as hard as you can you throw your baseball directly downwards while your friend throws hers directly upwards Immediately after each of you release your respective ball which ball has the greater acceleration a Neither both balls have the same acceleration b Your ball does since it will obviously hit the ground rst c Your friend s ball does since it is thrown in the positive direction 1 Not enough information is given since the initial speeds of the balls must be known e Not enough information is given since the positive direction must be known 10 Let s say that the two balls in the previous problem were thrown with the same initial Speed but of course in opposite directions Which ball hits the ground the hardest a Neither both balls hit the ground with the same speed b Your ball does since it was thrown towards the ground c Your friend s ball does since it moved up to a greater height and thus fell nther before hitting the ground d Not enough information is given we must rst know the height of the balcony 6 Not enough information is given the positive direction must

shape of a rectangular box but by fudging a couple of the dimensions you think that you can come up with a relatively good approximation of its volume by treating it as a box As a result of having to eyeball the dimensions of a box that would have the same volume as your monitor your uncertainties in the various dimensions are different You obtain the following results Length L42i3cm Width W35ilcm
