What is Nuclear fusion?
joining together of two or more atomic nuclei to form a larger atomic nucleus
1 of 41
What is a half-life of a radioactive isotope?
a measurement of time it takes for the rate of decay (count-rate) to halve
2 of 41
What's terminal velocity?
resultant force becomes 0 as the weight and resistive forces balance.. steady speed
3 of 41
equation for acceleration?
acceleration = change in velocity/time difference
4 of 41
What is an alloy?
A mixture that contains a metal and at least one other element to improve properties
5 of 41
Why do polymers have different properties?
different catalysts and temparatures and conditions used
6 of 41
An ionic bond occurs between what?
a metal and a non-metal
7 of 41
A covalent bond gives away electrons or shares a pair?
Shares a pair of electrons
8 of 41
What is tissue?
A group of similar/same cells grouped together
9 of 41
3 plant organs?
stem, roots, leaf
10 of 41
3 factors affecting photosynthesis?
temparature, Carbon dioxide concentration and light intensity
11 of 41
Aerobic respiration equation?
Glucose + Oxygen -> Carbon dioxide + Water + Energy can be remembered as GO=CWE
12 of 41
What is the stopping distance?
Distance covered in the time between the driver spottin hazard&vehicle coming to a stop
13 of 41
Factors that affect the braking distance?
How, dopey, how fast you're going, how good tyres, how good the grip is
14 of 41
What happens when a force moves an object through a distance?
Energy is transferred and work is done
15 of 41
Formula for work done and units?
WD (J) = Force (Newtons) x Distance (m)
16 of 41
What is the gravitational field strength of earth?
17 of 41
Gravitational potential energy formula and units?
GPE= mass (kg) x height (m) x gravity (always 10N)
18 of 41
What is it called when an elastic object takes a maximum force until its not directly proportional anymore?
Limit of proportionality
19 of 41
The greater the resistance across a component the...?
smaller the current
20 of 41
What does resistance increase of and why?
Temperature, resistance increases with temperature, energy transferred to heat the ions vibrate more, this makes it harder for the electrons to get through the resistor
21 of 41
What is the UK mains supply in Volts?
230 volts
22 of 41
What temperature do enzymes in the body work best at?
23 of 41
What is a catalyst?
a substance that increases the speed of a reaction without being changed or used up in the reaction
24 of 41
Where is bile produced, stored and released into?
produced- liver. stored- gall bladder. released into- the small intestine.
25 of 41
What is respiration?
respiration is the process of releasing energy from glucose which goes on in every cell
26 of 41
What do amylase covert starch into? wheres it made?
Sugars. Made in the 1) pancreas 2) small intestine 3) the salivary gland
27 of 41
what do protease convert proteins into where are they found?
Amino acids. Found in: 1) small intestine 2) pancreas 3) stomach (called pepsin there)
28 of 41
What does bile do?
it neutralises the stomach acid and emulsifies fats
29 of 41
Why does the stomach produce hydrochloric acid?
1) to kill bacteria 2) to give the right pH for the protease enzymes to work (pH 2- acidic)
30 of 41
What do animal cells have?
Nucleus, cytoplasm, cell membrane, mitochondria and ribosomes
31 of 41
what are mitochondria and ribosomes?
Mitochondria- where most of the reactions for respiration take place. ribosomes- where proteins are made in the cell
32 of 41
What is diffusion?
The spreading out of particles from an area of high concentration to low concentration
33 of 41
Equation for photosynthesis?
CW=GO Carbon dioxide+Water --light---> Glucose + oxygen
34 of 41
What is the pigment that absorbs oxygen?
35 of 41
Why does temperature increase the rate of reaction?
the particles get more energy+move faster, the particles collide more frequently,more sucessful collisions= enough activation energy
36 of 41
What is the ionic neutralization reaction?
H+ + OH- -> H20
37 of 41
Advantages of gas chromotography over paper chromotography?
sensitive (detects small amounts), fast, accurate
38 of 41
What information does mass spectroscopy give?
identifies substances, relative molecular mass
39 of 41
Why are stars stable for the 'main sequence' period of the life cycle?
forces within the star are balanced
40 of 41
What isthe difference between a prostar and main sequence star?
a prostar hhas lower temperatures, emits less radiation as fusion reactions have not started
