Describe and mathematically determine the electrostatic interaction between electrically charged particles using Coulomb’s law, Fₑ = kₑ(q₁q₂/r²). Compare and contrast Coulomb’s law and gravitational force, notably with respect to distance.
Investigate and evaluate the graphical and mathematical relationship (using either manual graphing or computers) of one-dimensional kinematic parameters (distance, displacement, speed, velocity, acceleration) with respect to an object's position, direction of motion, and time.
Gather evidence to defend the claim of Newton's first law of motion by explaining the effect that balanced forces have upon objects that are stationary or are moving at constant velocity.
Algebraically solve problems involving constant velocity and constant acceleration in one-dimension.
Develop and apply the impulse-momentum theorem along with scientific and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on an object during a collision (e.g., helmet, seatbelt, parachute).
