Electromagnetic Spectrum

Waves

  • The greater the amplitude, the louder the sound
  • The greater the frequency, the higher the pitch(http://scienceaid.co.uk/physics/waves/images/wave.png)

Pressure

  • Stiletto heels are more likely to mark floors because they have a high pressure
  • Camels have large, flat feet so they don't sink into the sand
  • Tractors have large tyres and heavy lorries need eight rear wheels so they have a bigger area, a lower pressure and damage roads less

Wave uses and dangers

Radiowaves-radio, TV and mobile phone signals. 

Microwaves-satellite TV, mobile phone signals.

Infrared-remote controls, infrared scanners and cameras. Causes burns

Visible light-LEDs, lasers. Danger to eyes

Ultraviolet-washing powders, produce vitsmin D-suntan. Bad for your eyes, can cause skin cancer

X-rays-check food for metal or stones, check bones and teeth. Radiation, can cause cancer, affect photographic film

Gamma rays-treat cancer. Remove elctrons from atoms so ions become unstable-causes cancer

Momentum

Momentum(kgm/s) = mass (kg) x velocity (m/s)

total momentum before collision = total momentum after collision

Work Done

  • Work done (J)
  • Force (N)
  • DIstance (m)

Hookes Law

The force of a steel spring is directly proportioanl to the force applied to it.

If the force is too large, the spring stretches beyond its limit of proportionality.

                 

                force applied (N) = spring constant (N/m) x extension (m)

Gravity and weight

                                 weight(N) = mass(kg) x gravity(N/kg)

16 of 20

Moments

The moment of a force is a measure of the turning effect of the force on an object

               

                   moment (Nm) = force (N) x perpendicular distance (m)

Example

A force of 50 N is exerted on a claw hammer of length 0.3m. Calculate the moment of the force.

Force = 50N x 0.3m = 15Nm

Forces

  • If lift is bigger than gravity-plane will go up and forward
  • If drag is bigger than thrust-plane will go forward but slow down
  • If thrust is bigger than drag, and lift is bigger than gravity-plane will move forward and up
  • If gravity is bigger than lift-plane will fall

Stopping Distance

 

Factors that affect sttopping distance:

  • Tiredness, alcohol and drugs
  • Speed of the vehicle
  • Inadverse road conditions
  • Poorly maintained vehicles

Stopping distance = thinking distance (reaction time) + braking distance

Velocity and acceleration

change in velocity =the final velocity - the initial velocity
