### Newton’S Laws Practice

1. 1. Newton’s Laws Practice
2. 2. 1 <ul><li>The kilogram is a measure of an object’s: </li></ul><ul><li>A) weight </li></ul><ul><li>B) gravity </li></ul><ul><li>C) force </li></ul><ul><li>D) mass </li></ul>
3. 3. 2 <ul><li>Whirl a rock at the end of a string and it follows a circular path. If the string breaks, the tendency is of the rock is to: </li></ul><ul><li>A) continue to follow a circular path </li></ul><ul><li>B) follow a straight line path </li></ul>
4. 4. 3 <ul><li>A sheet of paper can be withdrawn from under a milk carton without toppling it as long as the sheet is pulled quickly. This demonstrates: </li></ul><ul><li>A) gravity tends to hold the carton to the ground </li></ul><ul><li>B) the carton has inertia </li></ul><ul><li>C) for every action there’s an equal reaction </li></ul>
5. 5. 4 <ul><li>Your weight is: </li></ul><ul><li>A) a property of mechanical equilibrium </li></ul><ul><li>B) actually your mass </li></ul><ul><li>C) the gravitational attraction between your body and the earth </li></ul>

12. 12. 11 <ul><li>An object is propelled along a straight-line path. If it’s force were doubled, then it’s acceleration would: </li></ul><ul><li>A) halve </li></ul><ul><li>B) quadruple </li></ul><ul><li>C) double </li></ul><ul><li>D) stay the same </li></ul>
13. 13. 12 <ul><li>An object is propelled in a straight-line path by a force. If the mass of the object is somehow doubles, it’s acceleration: </li></ul><ul><li>A) halves </li></ul><ul><li>B) quadruples </li></ul><ul><li>C) doubles </li></ul><ul><li>D) stays the same </li></ul>
