What does it take to prove a hypothesis false

It needs one counter example.

Facts.

A straight line on a graph means there is a relationship between the dependent variable and the independent variable

When can the equations of kinematics not be used

Equations of kinematics or equations of motion can not be used
when the body is not accelerating or is moving with a constant
velocity.

A horizontal line on the velocity vs time graph indicates a constant positive acceleration

Which of the following is the name of the process scientists use to gain knowledge about the physical world

During an inquiry activity You can use one or more of your five senses during an inquiry activity to make

Which of the following settings describes a displacement vs time graph that looks like this

Constant velocity

Zero acceleration and/or Moving object

Is the term used to describe the study of motion

Select the situation below that would produce an average velocity of zero

A dog running in circles, stopping where it started

Is distance a vector quanity

No. Distance is not a vector quantity. It is a scalar quantity
and should not be confused with displacement, which is a vector
quantity.

Which of the following is not a key assumption to the scientific method

Distance is the magnitude of average velocity

Average speed is

the distance traveled divided by the time to travel that
distance and measured in m/s

Acceleration can be found by computing the slope of

You can find acceleration by calculating the slope of a time vs.
velocity graph. Time can be measured in seconds, and velocity in
meters per second. The slope, change in y over change in x, would
yield the units of m/s2, the units of acceleration.

Which two of the following characteristics must a hypothesis possess in order to be considered to be scientific

A hypothesis must possess capable of being proven false and
testable in order to be considered to be scientific.

Given no air resistance all objects near the Earth's surface regardless of size and weight fall with the same acceleration because of gravity

Shanes mother is training for a marathon On Saturdays she does a 10 mile run in 90 minutes What is her average speed in miles per hour

If the acceleration due to gravity is the same for all objects does the mass have any effect the acceleration due to gravity

No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.

No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.

No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.

No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.

The acceleration of gravity means that for each second that passes falling objects move 98 meters

No, that's not correct.

The acceleration of gravity means that for each second that passes, falling objects fall

at a speed that's 9.8 meters per second fasterthan it was one second earlier.

All digits shown on the measuring device plus one estimated digit are consider

significant digits.

for short they are called "sig. figs."

Which of the following is not practical application of gravity

the moon has no gravity because it has no atmosphere

appex

Which one of the following is not a step in the inquiry process Investigate observe classify summarize

What type of description is using numbers to describe kinematic quantities

Blank Is a process prompted by a question.

Giving an answer is likely the process that is prompted by a question.

What is a practical example of gravity acting on a moving object

A car speeds up as a traffic light turns green.

Which of the following can be used to explain a statement in a geometric proof Check all that apply
