# Mini-Quiz: Applied Force

by Ron Kurtus (29 September 2015)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Why is throwing a ball an applied force?

It depends on how hard you throw the ball

The ball is an applied force when it flies through the air

It is a push on the ball to set it in motion

2. What happens when you apply a force at a right angle to the movement of an object?

The object will change directions as long as the force is applied

The object will stop moving

Nothing, because the force is not in the direction of motion

3. If you double the force on an object, what happens to its acceleration?

The mass of the object will double

The acceleration will double

Acceleration is independent of the force

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Be forceful
