1. Problem statement:
"An object is thrown horizontally with an initial speed of 10 m/s. How far will it drop in 4 seconds?"
Δx = v0x.t
Δy = v0y.t + 1/2(-g)t2
The Attempt at a Solution
When I first read it, I thought that 'how far' means Δx, since when someone says...
I am planning on taking SAT Subject test in Physics in few months, but I don't know which textbook is best to study all physics concepts that will be tested.
I have a basic knowledge of algebra and almost none of calculus, as they didn't teach them back in high school, but I really want to...
What do you think is the best SAT physics prep book?
Years ago many people seemed to prefer Princeton Review, but the reviews for the last couple years seem to indicate that the Barron's guide is better? There's also the Kaplan SAT practice guide.
Any suggestions as to which is best?
I'm studying for the SAT physics subject test right now, and I need a good source of practice problems (the princetonreview book I have only has 2 practice tests and 10 questions for each chapter). Does the schaum's outline 3000 solved physics problem book has problems that are of similar...
Any recommendations for a physics textbook that I can use to self-study? The book doesn't have to be geared specifically toward self-study; it should just be clear and comprehensive enough for the SAT II. (Note my physics class is only mostly conceptual. Also, is College Physics: A Strategic...

SAT Subject test - Physics ??
I heard about SAT test few months ago. I looked at the subject which included a lot of ENGLISH. Unfortunately i am not really good in English so i considered Subject test.
But i have few questions about it.
First, What is its use. I mean, will...
If the block starts from rest, its momentum at 5 seconds is...
The Attempt at a Solution
When I thought about it, I was thinking about p=mv, and I had to substitute v to get a desirable answer. So I did p=m(at). However I only...
so i am going to be taking the physics subject test soon and i want to know what sort of stuff i should expect from it. Its been 1 year since i took physics and I've forgotten a lot of stuff we did in the later portion of the class. right now i am taking physics AP and we have only gotten...
right now, im trying to read a chapter on thermal physics and electric forces. Im trying to do the practice questions, but I can't seem to understand them. Can someone please do these few questions and explain them as well? thanks!
1) During each cycle, a heat engine absorbs 400 J of heat...
I want to take SAT II Physics test in November. Problem is that I don't have any prior knowledge of the subject. I'm highly interested in it and have an idea about some topics since I'm also studying Mechanics in Math.
I want to know whether it is possible to self-study for the test and score...
I solved today the questions that the college board put in it's free guide pdf. But these questions are very very easy!!! is this also the level of the real sat II physics test's questions????
Is there any free online source to prepare for this test??
Thanks a lot :)
will the SAT Physics test ask me something like "What does the Second Law of Thermodynamics say should happen..."? If so, do I need to memorize all these laws? How can I possibly know them all? Is there a list?
I'm giving my SAT subject tests in Dec 2008, And I would like to know where I can give practice tests for : Math 1-2, Physics ??? Please Help, as I intent to score 800 on all three of them. I presently use Princeton for both math, barrons for physics; but the practice tests are'nt...
I'm about to take the SAT II physics in Oct. I bought the Kaplan review book for it but found that I have not learned a lot of the things covered in the test, I have only taken first year physics and I am taking AP physics right now. We have not yet covered circuits, magnetic fields, ray optics...
Wow... I felt like I did horribly on my SAT Physics test, but I got an 800! This doesn't really make me happy though, since I know I missed a lot of questions: I'm pretty sure I got every question right EXCEPT for all the optics questions (and maybe one on fractals). I had never seen optics...

i'm studying for my SAT II Physics on June 7, 2008. and taking practice tests from REA.
i had trouble understanding this question. please help :) it would be VERY appreciated.

Assume that every projectile fired from a toy cannon experiences force F along the length of the barrel. If a projectile of mass M leaves the barrel with speed, V, at what speed will a projectile of mass 2M leave the barrel with...
I'm not sure of whether or not I should waste 150 dollars to buy one of the most powerful calculators released by TI, the Ti-89 titanium. For all of you who own one or knows someone who does, how is it?? Right now I have a Ti-84, but I don't think it is as efficient as a Ti-89.. And yes, Ti-89s...
Hi, I am currently studying the Cambridge A-Level and I will also be taking the SAT Physics sometime end of this year. I am not too sure which category these belong to, so hopefully they fit in the K-12 level alright. I currently have two questions which have been bothering me past two days...
A proton charge of 1.6 x 10^-19 coulomb moves trhough a vacuum with a speed v of 1 x 10^6 meters per second. It passes through a uniform magnetic field as shown above. If the force exeted on the proton is 8 x 10^-15 newton, the magnitude of the magnetic force is most nearly.
(A) 1.3 x 10^-27...
Hey, just wondering if anyone is doing the physics sat II. I saw the ap thread below, and it got me wondering if there's many other high school students here. So, yes, just out of curiosity, anyone doing sat's / sat II's???
