Astronomy Midterm Review:
Universe: The sum total of all energy and matter. Totality of all space, time,
energy and matter.
Age & Size of Universe: 13.7 Billion years old. Size of the universe is
uncertain. What we can see in the universe is called The Observable
Universe. The horizon is the limit to what you can see no matter where you
are.
Light Year: Distance light travels in one year. The Speed of Light is c=300
million meters/second (in a vacuum)
Contents of the Universe: Planets, dwarf planets, Stars, Galaxies etc.
EVERYTHING
Our Location in Universe: Milky Way Galaxy, neighbour galaxy
Andromeda.
Gravity: Force between 2 objects containing mass.
Mass Vs. Weight: Mass = amount of matter in an object, weight = force that
acts upon an object.
Force: Causes change in momentum
Newtons Laws of Motion:
An object moves at a constant velocity unless a net force acts to change
its speed/direction
Force = mass x acceleration
For every force, there is always an equal + opposite reaction force
Free-Fall: The condition in which an object is falling without resistance;
objects are weightless when in free-fall.
Momentum: The product of an objects mass and velocity. [mass x velocity]
Angular Momentum: Rotational momentum of a spinning/orbiting object.

#### Loved by over 2.2 million students

Over 90% improved by at least one letter grade.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Leah — University of Toronto

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

Saarim — University of Michigan

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.

Jenna — University of Wisconsin

OneClass has allowed me to catch up with my most difficult course! #lifesaver
