## Physics! Semester 1 Final Exam Review materials

The resources and hints provided here are to help you prepare for the final exam.

Fall 2017 Final Exam Guidelines and Topics to study

Formulas given on the final

Study Tip: A useful exercise would be to go through each of the models we have studied so far and attempt to outline the key ideas. Write down what you felt to be the most important ideas in each model, and compare your list to the list of key ideas I gave you for each unit below. One way of making the outline is to make concept maps showing the connections between ideas within a model and the connections between models themselves.

__(position, velocity, acceleration) This is a very good application and set of problems.__

**Graphing Practice**The Moving Man graphing x-t and v-t simulation (this is Java, so be careful)

Download this worksheet for a set of questions to answer using the applet as a guide. You may find that you can answer the questions without even using the simulation.

The practice links below will give you a sample set of problems on each model we covered this semester. Do them on a separate piece of paper. The answers are also found on the website with the questions.

**The Review Session**at http://www.physicsclassroom.com/reviews is an excellent resource with questions (w/ corresponding answers) on each model we covered. Click the links below on the topic you wish to review. Pay particular attention to the questions listed as they cover all of the concepts you will be assessed on the final exam.**Concept Builders**below each question set are very good review "games" to help you prepare for the concepts on the final. They are more visual than the question sets from the Review Session.**Forces in Two Dimensions (review of everything, Awesome review with force diagrams, angles, and Atwood problems)******1, 6, 7, 9, 11-14, 16-17, 19-20 atwood's machine, 22-23, 25, 26, 28 atwood

**1D Kinematics (CV and UA particle models)**- 4-7, 8-28, 31-38, 40-44
- Graph That Motion
- Match That Graph****
- Free Fall

**Newton’s Laws of Motion (Balanced and Unbalanced force models)**- 1, 4-10, 12-15, 22-24, 32-36, 38-48, 50-54, 57-60
- Balanced vs. Unbalanced Forces
- Match That Force Diagram
- Which Doesn't Belong
- Fnet=ma

**Vector’s and Projectiles (Unit 3 material on all projectile motion)**- 5, 7, 34, 35-39, 42, 43, 51-53, 60-64
- Projectile Motion simulation from Phet (really good! will do both cliff and angle-launched, not a game though)
- Turd the Target practice with horizontal projectiles (cliff problems)
- Turd the Target 2 practice with angle-launched projectiles
