Flash cards for Physics

HideShow resource information
Hooke's law...
Hooke's law: 1.) The extension of an object is directly proportional to the force being applied to it 2.) A spring will return to it's original shape when the force has been removed so long as the elastic limit has not been exceeded
1 of 5
Fission...
Fission: 1.) Occurs in Uranium and Plutonium 2.) Can lead to a chain reaction 3.) Releases neutrons which can trigger the next event 4.) The source of energy in a nuclear power station 5.) Always produces nuclei which are radioactive
2 of 5
More Fission...
1.) Large nuclei splitting into smaller ones 2.) Release 2 or 3 spare neutrons
3 of 5
Fusion...
1.) Happens in the sun 2.) Involves Hydrogen nuclei joining to make Helium 3.) Could be developed for power stations in the future
4 of 5
Wiring a plug...
The Live wire carries current to the appliance at a high voltage. The neutral wire completes the circuit and carries current away from the appliance. The earth wire is a safety wire and connects the metal case of the appliance to the earth.
