Presidential Physics Quiz

A lot of publicity seems to be generated by the Richard Muller book "Physics for Future Presidents". It's all in the timing, since it is the presidential election time here in the US.

In any case, the NY Times is presenting a set of questions aimed at the presidential candidates (and everyone else). See if you can answer them correctly and win Muller's book!

Aside from Newtons laws(inertia, f=ma and action/reaction, thermodynamics(conservation of E, entropy and no absolute zero), the electromagnetic field (all behave with Maxwell's eqns)and simple tools (lever, plane). What other physics should a non physicist know?
