# Physical science quiz three momentum • Name:

- ____________________ Potential energy is equal to mass × acceleration of gravity g × height. Calculate the potential energy of a 5 gram marble 60 cm high on banana leaf ramp. Use 980 cm/s² for g.
- ____________________ Consider energy to be conserved. Kinetic energy is 0.5 × mass × velocity². Calculate the predicted velocity of the marble at the bottom of the banana leaf ramp.
- ____________________ If one marble collides with a line of five
marbles on a ruler track, how many marbles are ejected and roll on
off the track?
- ____________________ If three marbles collide with a line of five
marbles on a ruler track, how many marbles are ejected and roll on
off the track?
- Why do you think the marbles know what to do?
- ____________________ A 20.2 g taw covers 30.0 cm in 0.59 seconds. What is the speed of the taw?
- ____________________ A 20.2 g taw covered 30.0 cm in 0.59 seconds. What is the linear momentum of the taw? Note: Momentum is mass × velocity
- ____________________ A 20.2 g taw covered 30.0 cm in 0.59 seconds. What is the kinetic energy of the taw? Note: Kinetic energy is 0.5 × mass × velocity².
- ____________________ Why do you think the water stayed in the glass on Wednesday?
- ____________________ Why do you think the balloons did not become equal in size on Wednesday?
