Core Idea 2: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions
Learning Standard Test Questions
HS-PS2-1 Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s Second Law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration. 24, 26, 27, 28, 33, 34, 35, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 44, 45, 46
HS-PS2-2 Use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system. 47, 50, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56
HS-PS2-3 Design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on a macroscopic object during a collision. 48, 49, 51, 57, 58
Core Idea 3: Energy
Learning Standard Test Questions
HS-PS3-2 Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motions of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative position of particles (objects). 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75
