Representing and Measuring Motion
· For an object moving at a steady speed, the distance it travels and the time it takes
are related as shown:
Speed = distance travelled (metre, m) ÷ time taken (second, s) (metre/second, m/s)
(metre,…

Forces and Acceleration
· In general, objects experience one or more physical forces acting on them. The
individual forces are combined, taking into account size and direction, to give an
unbalanced or resultant force which acts in a particular direction.…

Frictional Forces and Nonuniform Motion
· A force of friction acts when an object moves through air or water, or when solid
surfaces slide (or tend to slide) across each other. The direction of this force of friction is
always…
