Physics Review Question Unit: Energy Year: 1989 Question#: 3 Question: Base your answer to the question below on the diagram which represents a block sliding along a frictionless surgace from A to G. Which expression represents the magnitude of the block's acceleration as it moves from point C to point D? (1 ) m/F (2 ) v/ t (3 ) m v (4 ) 2 s/ t What is this question really asking? Explanation by: Anna R [ Return to question menu ] Answer 1 m/F INCORRECT Acceleration equals the rate of change of its velocity.  return to top Answer 2 v/ t CORRECT Acceleration equals the rate of change of its velocity.  return to top Answer 3 m v INCORRECT Acceleration equals the rate of change of its velocity, the answer 3 formula equals the change of momentum of an object.  return to top Answer 4 2 s/ t INCORRECT Acceleration equals the rate of change of its velocity.  return to top What's this question really asking?
