About This Quiz & Worksheet

How does an object's path look with straight line motion and constant acceleration? This quiz and corresponding worksheet will help you see what you know about illustrating free fall motion with graphs. You will need to know the acceleration due to gravity as well as the force that gets ignored during free fall motion problems.

Quiz & Worksheet Goals

This printable worksheet and online quiz require you to identify the following:

  • Value of the acceleration due to gravity
  • Force to ignore during free fall motion
  • Position versus time graph
  • Velocity versus time graph
  • What the same kind of motion looks like on each type of graph

Skills Practiced

This worksheet and quiz will let you practice the following skills:

  • Information recall - verify you can recall important information from the lesson, such as the acceleration due to gravity
