forces between objects- what can a force change?
A force can change the shape of an object or change its state of rest (stop an object) or its motion (change its velocity)

All forces are measured using the unit Newton
2 of 95
a force is a...
push or a pull
3 of 95

there is an equal and opposite reaction force
5 of 95
what happens when two objects interact?
the forces they exert on each other are equal and opposite
6 of 95
what happens to the number of forces acting at a point
they may be replaced by a single force that has the same effect on the motion as the original forces all acting together
7 of 95

resultant force
8 of 95
what can a result force acting on an object?
can cause a change in its state of rest or motion.

object is travelling at a constant velocity
10 of 95

13 of 95

the distance that an object has travelled
16 of 95

17 of 95
what are the 4 examples DAVF
Displacement- distance travelled in a particular direction. Velocity – speed in a particular direction. Force – always has a size and direction. Acceleration – it has size and direction
18 of 95
on the road what = the stopping distance?
thinking distance+ breaking distance
19 of 95
the total distance needed to stop a car is not just....
the distance the car travels after the brakes have been applied, there is also the time needed for the driver to react to seeing something.
20 of 95
what is this called?
stopping distance
21 of 95

is the distance the car travels during the driver’s reaction time seeing something. There are many factors that can affect your reaction time.

24 of 95
falling objects - weight and mass are not what?
the same thing
25 of 95
what is weight?
The weight of an object is the force of gravity on it. Weight is measured in Newtons (N)
26 of 95
what is mass
The mass of an object is the quantity (amount) of matter in it. Mass is measured in Kilograms (Kg)
27 of 95
what happens in a vacuum?
All falling bodies accelerate at the same rate. In the atmosphere Air resistance increases with increasing speed. Air resistance will increase until it is equal in size to the weight of a falling object
28 of 95
what happens in a vacuum?
When the two forces are balanced, acceleration is zero and TERMINAL VELOCITY is achieved. An object acted on only by the Earths gravity accelerates at about 10 m/s2
29 of 95
what happens between a & B
The object accelerates at first because of the force of gravity. The weight of the object is greater that the air resistance forces.
30 of 95
what happens between B & C
The object is still accelerating but its acceleration decreases as time goes by. This is because frictional force (air resistance) acting against it is increasing as the speed increases.
31 of 95
what happens between c and d
The object is not accelerating any more. It has reached its terminal velocity and is falling at a steady speed. The resultant force is zero because the frictional force acting against it is now the same as the weight of the object.
