Are You Smarter Than An Eighth Grader In Science?

I got an A-. They all seemed pretty easy, but I guess they weren't, as I booted at least two of them.

I think I blew the one about the final velocity of a falling stone. I kept thinking that 1/2 should be part of the expression (and thus the answer), but I now realize the 1/2 enters it when you're talking about distance covered. 1/2 (g)(t)(t). I think.

So there's one I blew. I kinda think I blew another one by not picking my first answer, which seemed too obvious, instead chosing a more unfamiliar term which seemed more "sciencey."
