About This Quiz & Worksheet

You can quickly test your knowledge of circular motion formulas and how to apply them using this quiz/worksheet assessment. To do well on quiz, you will need to be familiar with mathematical concepts, such as velocity, acceleration and force.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

When you take this quiz, you should be prepared to:

  • Determine the velocity and acceleration of a ball swung on a rope in a given scenario
  • Calculate the force on the ball in the same scenario
  • Figure out the velocity of the ball if the rope in this scenario was lengthened by two meters
  • Note what would most increase the acceleration of the ball

Skills Practiced

  • Problem solving - use acquired knowledge to solve force and acceleration practice problems
  • Information recall - access the knowledge you've gained regarding what most affects the increase of acceleration on an object in circular motion
  • Knowledge application - use your knowledge to answer questions about velocity

Additional Learning
