What does Newton's third law relate to?
bodies in equilibrium and can be applied to collisions when considering the conservation of momentum
1 of 52
What does Newton's third law state?
that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
2 of 52
The action force and the reaction force act on what?
different bodies
3 of 52
What is human reaction time?
is the time between a stimulus occurring and a response
4 of 52
State the time it takes a typical person to react to a stimulus
between 0.20 s and 0.25 s
5 of 52
How do you calculate reaction time?
reaction time= square root of 2 x distance ruler falls divided by gravitational field strength
6 of 52
What is the stopping distance?
is the total distance over which a vehicle comes to rest
7 of 52
What is the thinking distance?
the distance the car travels while the driver reacts to the danger and applies the brakes
8 of 52
What is the braking distance?
the distance the car travels while it is slowing down, once the brakes have been applied
9 of 52
How do you calculate the stopping distance?
add the thinking distance and the braking distance to calculate the stopping distance
10 of 52
When does the thinking distance increase?
when the driver's reaction time increases
11 of 52
State a factor affecting a driver's thinking distance
the driver being tired
12 of 52
State a factor affecting a driver's thinking distance
the driver being distracted
13 of 52
State a factor affecting a driver's thinking distance
the driver having taken alcohol or drugs
14 of 52
State when braking distance increases
when the amount of friction between the tyres and road decreases, such as when the road is icy or wet
15 of 52
State when braking distance increases
when the brakes are worn
16 of 52
State when braking distance increases
when the tyres are worn
17 of 52
State when braking distance increases
when the mass of the car is bigger

hot object
31 of 52
State an example of magnetic energy store
two magnets
32 of 52
State an example of electrostatic energy store
two charges
33 of 52
State an example of nuclear energy store
radioactive decay
34 of 52
State one way how energy is transferred from one store to another
mechanically- by a force moving through a distance
35 of 52
State one way how energy is transferred from one store to another
electrically- by the use of electric current
36 of 52
State one way how energy is transferred from one store to another
thermally- because of a difference in temperature
37 of 52
State one way how energy is transferred from one store to another
by radiation- by waves such as electromagnetic or sound
38 of 52
When there are energy transfers in a closed system there is no what?
net change to the total energy in the system
39 of 52
What is a closed system?
is where energy can flow in or out of the system but there is no transfer of mass
40 of 52
When do mechanical processes become wasteful?
when they lead to a rise in temperature of the surroundings through heating
41 of 52
What is the efficiency of a device?
is a measure of how much useful energy it transfers
42 of 52
State one thing that the rate at which thermal energy is transferred through a wall of a house depends on
the difference in temperature between the warmer interior and the colder exterior
43 of 52
State one thing that the rate at which thermal energy is transferred through a wall of a house depends on
the thickness of the walls
44 of 52
State one thing that the rate at which thermal energy is transferred through a wall of a house depends on
the material that the walls are made from
45 of 52
What is the efficiency of a machine?
is a way of saying how good it is at transferring energy into useful forms
46 of 52
How do you calculate efficiency?
efficiency= useful energy supplied by the machine divided by the total energy supplied to the machine multiplied by 100
47 of 52
What do most machines waste energy as?
heat energy
48 of 52
How can unwanted energy transfers be reduced?
by thermal insulation and lubrication
49 of 52
What does lubrication involve?
placing a liquid between moving parts to reduce friction and this leads to less energy being wasted as thermal energy to the surroundings
50 of 52
Renewable energy resources will not?
run out
51 of 52
Non-renewable energy resources are what?
available all the time
