Speed and Acceleration
Total Distance (m)
Speed ( m
s)= Total time (s)

Distance- Time graphs-Showing objects moving at steady pace/stationary
If an object is stationary…

Change in V elocity ( m
Acceleraton (m/s2) Time (s)

V ­ Final Velocity
U- Start Velocity
V-U ­Change in Velocity
Example: A sprinter starts at the velocity of 5m/s & accelerates to 20m/s taking 3 seconds
20-5 = 5m/ss

Speeding Up & Down
Forces between objects…

As things fall they experience an upward force called air resistance (drag)

Work, energy and momentum
Energy and Work- When a force moves an object, energy is transferred & work is done
Work is done whenever a force moves something.
The distance moved when work is carried out on an…

When a force acts on an object that is moving, or able to move the momentum changes:

F orce (N ) =Change in momentum
Time taken (s)

Safety features in cars are designed to absorb kinetic energy in a crash.
Crumples zones fold in a collision, increasing impact time so…

Dangers of Static Electricity- A charged conductor can be discharged by connecting it to the earth with
a metal
Static Electricity is on a petrol tanker from the friction of tyre on road
When filling underground tanker with petrol static electricity build up through the pipe
Metal straps are connected…

The resistance decreases as the temperature rises


The resistance decrease if the light intensity increase


Mains Electricity
The Plug
BRown= Live
Green/yellow= Earth
The features of a plug are:
Copper wire- it's a good conductor
Surrounded by flexible plastic,-good insulator
Case made from tough plastic or rubber-…

C urrent (A) = Charge (C) Q
Time (s) OR I × T

Energy in circuits-Energy Transferred (J) - amount of energy transformed increases as the p.d
Energy transferred(J ) = P .d (V )×Charge(C )ORV E

neutron, 1 electron electron
Radioactive Decay-If atoms emit alpha/beta radiation, its nucleus changes. It becomes the nucleus of a
different element because the number of protons in the nucleus determines which element the atom is.…

Discovery of the Nucleus
The atom was imagined to be a sphere of positive charge with negatively charged
electrons dotted around inside it like plums in a pudding.
An experiment carried out in 1905 showed that the plum pudding model could not be
Rutherford, Geiger & Marsden made an…
