IV. Problem Solving Strategies:

Use our problem solving strategies to solve the following problems
1. If the formula for momentum is p=mv where p is the variable for
momentum, m is mass and v is velocity, what will the momentum be for
1500kg body if its moving at a speed of 30 m/s? (Answer: 45,000 kg* m/s)

2. Using the same formula as you did in problem 1, what will the momentum
be for a 1000kg body if its moving at a speed of 25m/s? (Answer: 25,000
kg*m/s

Day 3: Forces, Forces and Friction, Forces at Angles, Forces and Acceleration.

Name: _____________________ Date:______________ Period:_______

Key Terms- You can look these up! Make sure you have all of these typed up so
its easier for you to read on exam day!
Key Ideas- Go through your tests and rewrite all questions and the correct

Practice Problems:

I. Forces
1. The mass of an elevator and its occupants is 900kg. Whats the
acceleration of the cab if the tension in the cable is 100,000N?
2. An object with a weight of 78.4N is pushed along a surface with a
force of 50N. Two people are pushing against the object, one with a
force of 35N and the other with a force of 35N, totaling 70N against.
Whats the net force? Whats the mass? Whats the acceleration?
(Answer: Fnet= -20N left, m= 8kg, a= -2.5 m/s left)
