Newtons First Law
The velocity of an object will not change unless a resultant force acts on it
1 of 17
Newtons Second Law
F=ma
2 of 17
Newtons Third Law
If an object A exerts a force on object B, then object B exerts an equal but opposite force on object A
3 of 17
Scalar
Distance,Speed,Mass
4 of 17
Vector
Displacement,Velocity,Acceleration
5 of 17
Hooke's Law
The extension is proportional to the force applied as long as the limit of proportionality not exeeded
6 of 17
Young's Modulus
Stiffness constant of a material
7 of 17
Longitudinal Waves
The parts of the wave oscillate parallel to the direction of travel
8 of 17
Transverse Waves
The parts of the wave oscillate perpendicular tot he direction of travel
9 of 17
Stationary Waves
A wave reflects to make two waves travelling in opposite directions with similar amplitude and frequency to superpose to make a stationary wave with nodes and anti nodes
10 of 17
Monochromatic
Single wavelength
11 of 17
Coherent
Same frequency/wavelength and a constant phase relationship
12 of 17
Diffraction
Spreading out of a wave when passed through a slit of around an obsical
13 of 17
Principle Of Superposition
The resultant displacement caused by 2 waves arriving at a point is the vector sum of the 2 displacements caused by each wave at that instant
14 of 17
Node
Point with zero displacement with no amplitude
15 of 17
Anti Node
Point with maximum displacement/amplitude
16 of 17
Refraction
Change of direction of a wave when it propagates through a different medieum
