GCSE Physics Unit 2 Revision

Kinetic Energy

  • Anything which is moving has kinetic energy. The kinetic energy of something depends on its mass and speed. 
  • The greater the mass and the faster it's going, the greater the kinetic energy will be.
  • kinetic energy = 0.5 x m x v(squared)
  • Stopping distances are affected by extra speed a lot.

Potential Energy

  • Energy can be stored as potential energy.
  • Elastic potential energy - Things like springs and elastic…
