Module 3: Natural Forces Affecting the Driver Vocabulary: Please define six (6) of the following terms in your own words. Please do not just copy and paste the definition. 1. Gravity- a force that which pulls two objects toward each other. 2.
2. “A body at rest will remain at rest unless acted upon by an outside force.” Example- A car accelerates from a stop sign or a stopped car is propelled forward by a rear –end collision. Conservation of Energy The law of conservation of energy states, “Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. It can only be changed from one form to another.” Example- If a car slows down gradually; the brakes develop friction and heat. During an auto crash, the transfer of energy happens at a much greater rate into different forms.
Unit 4 Traffic Control Devices and Laws Definition and Purpose of Traffic Control Devices Worksheet 4.1 Signs, Signals and Pavement Markings Name Date 1. Traffic control devices are essentially signs, signals and markings that ________________________________________________ 2. A) On the line below each sign, identify the type of sign using the numbers on the right. 1 – REGULATORY Sign 2 – WARNING Sign 3 – GUIDE OR INFORMATIONAL Sign B) Complete the signs below by adding a message commonly seen on each sign along a road and give the main color of the sign in the space to the right of each sign. 3 ______ 2 _______ 2 ______ 2.
Move into the correct lane as you near the intersection. The correct lane for the right turn is the lane next to the right edge of the roadway. On a two-lane road with traffic in both directions, an approach for a left turn should be made from near the center line. voided by following some simple methods 4. Signal for at least the last 100 feet before you make your turn.
The amount of liquid to load into a tank depends on _______-The legal weight limits and the amount the liquid will expand in transit. 9.) You are driving on a clear night. You must dim your headlights from high to low. You should adjust your speed so you can stop within ______-The distance you can see ahead.
Second Law of Motion: The Validated Truth Purpose: The validation of Newton’s second law of motion, stating that ___________ is the goal of the experiment. This will be done by variations to both the accelerating force and the mass of the car. Materials: |[pic]Low friction cart |Low friction track |Pulley | |string |motion sensor |lab quest system | |weight hanger |measured weights |triple beam balance | Procedure: 1. Begin by placing the track on level horizontal surface. 2.
2.Driving can be dangerous W—What you Want to know Discuss two things you want to know about driving. 1.How to drive safely without distractions. 2.How to control the gas pedal. L—What you Learned Discuss at least two new things you learned from Module One. 1.Driving is a privilege.
Because the ball is constantly moving it is constantly changing direction and therefore it’s constantly changing velocity. This means even if the speed is constant the velocity is always changing. When the object has enough momentum, it is launched into the air an optimum angle to go high enough to travel far in the time it’s in the air, but not so that it just travels straight upward and not horizontally. It doesn’t matter what athletic event it is, as the analysis of the circular motion is the same. Newton’s three laws describe the relationship between force, mass and acceleration.
