Mini-Quiz: Inertial Force

by Ron Kurtus (30 September 2015)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What is the Action-Reaction Law?

If a force is opposite to an object, there is a reaction

If a force is applied to an object, there is an equal and opposite reaction

If an equal force is applied to an object, there is an opposite reaction

2. When you push on something, how can you tell there is an opposing inertial force?

You feel the resistance to your push

The object starts moving and won't stop

You experience the object moving towards you

3. What is happening when you are riding in a bus and it suddenly stops?

You stand up

You move forward because your inertia

You slide backwards in your seat due to inertia forces

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
