Displacement

distance in a certain direction

1 of 43

Scaler

Physical quantites that have size but no specific direction such as distance and speed

2 of 43

Vectors

Physical quantites that have a size and direction such as displacment and force

3 of 43

Magnitude

Te size of a quantity is its magnitude. Vectors have a magnitude and direction but scalers only have a magnitude

4 of 43

Vector quantity and arrows

Any vector quantity can be represented by an arrow. The direction of the arrow shows the direction of the vector quantity and the lenght of the arrow represents the magnitude of the vector quantity

what is a force?

A force is a push, pull, twist or turn. Forces always comes in pairs called interaction pairs.

6 of 43

What can forces make an object do

Forces can make an object (speed up), (slow down), (change shape), (change direction) and turn

7 of 43

What are forces measured in?

Forces are measured in newtons (N) using a nano-metre

8 of 43

Newtons third law of motion

when two obect interact with eah other they exert equal and opposite forces on each other

9 of 43

equation for weight

weight = mass x gravity

10 of 43

gravity

the bigger the objetc the bigger the gravity. The smaller the object the smaller the garvity

11 of 43

Mass

Mass is the amount of matter in something. Mass is measured in kg

12 of 43

weight

weight is a force measured in newtons

13 of 43

Resultant force

Resultant force is a single force that has the same effect as all the forces acting on the object

14 of 43

Newtons first law of motion

if the force acting on the object are balanced, the resultant force on thee object is 0 and if the object is stationary it remains at rest. If its moving it keeps moving with the same speed and in the same direction

15 of 43

Free body diagram

a free body diagram shows the force acting on an object without sny other obect

16 of 43

The centre of mass of a object

the centre of mass of an object is the point at its mass can be thoought as being concentrated

17 of 43

velocity

speed in a particular idrection (m/s). Velocity has speed ans direction

18 of 43

aceeleration equation 1

End velocity - starting velcity divided by time

19 of 43

gradient

gradient is the speed

20 of 43

equation for resultant force

resultant force (F)= Mass (M) x acceleration (A)

21 of 43

Newtons second law of motion

newtons second law of motion says that the acceleration of an object is proportional to the force of the object and inversely proportional to the mass of the object

22 of 43

why is an resultant force needed?

A resultant force is needed to change the velocity of the object

23 of 43

Inertia

The tendency of an object to stay at rest or carry on at a steady speed

24 of 43

Inertia mass

The inertia mass of an object is a measure of the difficulty of changing the objects velocity

25 of 43

equation for inertial mass

inertial mass = force divided by acceleration

26 of 43

how does the velocity of the object chnage

The velocity of an object change if it is acte on by an resultant force

27 of 43

what happens if the resultannt force is in same direction as velocity

if the resultant force is in the same direction as the velocity the object accelerates

28 of 43

what happens if the resultant force is in opposite direction of velocity

If the resultant force is in the oppoosite direction of velocity than the acceleration is negative and as a result the object slows down

29 of 43

what is weight of an object

The weight of an object is the force acting on it due to gravity

30 of 43

what does the gravatational force on an object depend on

The gravatational force on an object dependsmwhere on earth it is

31 of 43

equation for weight

weight,W = mass,m x gravitational field sttrenght (gravity), g

32 of 43

stopping distance

stopping distance is amde of two parts the thinking distance and bracking distance

33 of 43

thiequation for stopping distance

stopping distance = thinking + braking

34 of 43

thinking distance

thee distance a vehicle travels while you relise youneed to brake

35 of 43

bracking distance

the distance you travel from the time you hit the brakes until you stop

36 of 43

factors affecting stopping distance

(speed of vehicle), (tiredness, alchol, drug), (poor weather),(worn tyres and brakes)

37 of 43

how to calculate braking force

To calculate braking force use F=mxa

38 of 43

when is an object elastically

An object is elastically if it returns to its original shape when the forces deformed are removed

39 of 43

elastically deformed

We say an object is elastically deformed if the elastic material can change shape

40 of 43

extension

the increase in lenght

41 of 43

Hooke's law

Hooke's law says that the extension of a spring is directly proportional to the force applied as long as its limit of proportinality is not exceeded

42 of 43

equation for force applied

Force applied,F= spring constant,K x extension,e
