Term
How do you subtract vectors? 

Definition
Add one vector to the negative of the second vector 


Term
When multiplying two vectors, what are the two possible products and their formulas? 

Definition
Vector and Scalar
Magnitude of V_{product} = V_{1}V_{2}sinΘ
(Points perpendicular to original two vectors)
Magnitude of S_{product} = V_{1}V_{2}cosΘ 


Term
Two types of triangles to know for MCAT? 

Definition
345 and 51213 triangles 


Term
Explain 'Uniformly Accelerated Motion' 

Definition
Motion with constant acceleration (can be zero acceleration) 


Term
What are the 4 uniform acceleration equations? 

Definition
x = x_{0} + v_{0}t + 1/2at^{2}
v = v_{0} + at
v^{2} = v_{0}^{2} + 2ax
v_{avg} = 1/2(v_{0} + v) 


Term
What does the slope represent on a displacement vs. time graph?
What does a curved line on the graph represent?
What does the area beneath the graph represent? 

Definition
Velocity
Changing velocity = acceleration
The area has no meaning 


Term
What does the slope represent on a velocity vs. time graph?
What does a curved line represent?
What does the area beneath the graph mean? 

Definition
Acceleration
Changing acceleration
If the entire area between the curve and zero velocity is labled positive, the area represents distance. If negative numbers are included, area represents displacement. 


Term
What is the formula to find the peak height of a projectile? 

Definition


Term
What dictates the time of flight for a projectile? 

Definition
Only the vertical velocity 


Term
What is the formula to calculate the range of a projectile? 

Definition
Range = Horizontal Velocity x Time in Flight 


Term
What three factors effect air resistance and how? 

Definition
Surface Area: increased surface area = increased air resistance
Shape: Streamlined objects experience less air resistance
Velocity/Speed: Higher velocity = more air resistance
