by Ron Kurtus (revised 14 February 2016)

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

1. Why do computer games use the laws of physics?

They have nothing to do with science

To add special effects

To make the game more realistic

2. How can you hear an explosion in outer space?

Sound travels at the speed of light in space

You can't, but the sound is used for dramatic effects

You can't hear it because you are on Earth

3. What do many physics equations do?

They predict the behavior or response of an object

They make homework difficult

They show how smart some scientists are

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.
