A rate is any quantity divided by time
True
An object may have zero acceleration and still be moving
True
Two cars may have the same speed, but different velocities
Ture
When a ball experiences free fall, the distance it falls each second is constant
False
In the absence of air resistance, an object that is thrown and caught from the same position returns to your hand with the same speed with which it left.
Ture
A ball is throuwn into the air. At the highest point, the ball has zero acceleration.
False
A ball is throuwn into the air. At the highest point, it has zero velocity
True
In the absence of air resistance, an object that is throuwn straight up begins experienceing free fall the moment it leavs your hand.
True
A ball thrown horizontally from the top of a tower would stay in the air longer if it is throuwn harder
True
An earth satelite is beyond the reach of Earth's gravity.
False
The units of velocities hay be represented as meters per second, and accelerations may be represented as meters per second squared.
Ture
