Explain Newtons first law of motion
An object in motion will remain in the motion unless acted upon by an outside force
Explain Newtons second law of motion
Force = mass x acceleration
Explain Newtons third law of motion
For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction
What is the conservation of energy law?
Energy cannot be created or destroyed. I can only change form energy can take mechanical, thermal, electrical, chemical, and nuclear forms.
What is kinetic energy?
Energy that objects possess due to their motion. KE = 1/2mv^2 M = mass (kg) V = velocity (m/s) KE = kinky energy (J)
Explain potential energy vs. kinetic energy
Stored vs. motion
Everything has energy until the energy is enough to create a reaction where it then turns into kinetic energy.
What is the international measurement of kinetic energy?
What is kinematics?
The process of predicting injury patterns
What should be considered when evaluating a trauma patients?
- Force of energy applied
- Energy (e.g. mass, velocity, distance, and thermal, electrical, and chemical forms)
How is the extent of an injury defined?
- The type and amount of energy applied
- The speed with which energy is applied
- The part of the body to which energy is applied
