# Mini-Quiz: Applied Force Affects Motion of Object

by Ron Kurtus (revised 1 October 2015)

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

1. What is acceleration?

A force

Change in speed

Change in velocity over time

2. How can you stop a moving object?

By applying a sufficient force in the opposite direction

According to Newton's Law, you cannot stop a moving object

By never allowing it to move in the first place

3. What would cause a moving object to change direction?

A force applied in the direction of motion

A force applied opposite the direction of motion

A force applied at an angle to the line of motion

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.

Move with grace
