what is speed measured in?

m/s, km/h, mph

1 of 48

what can you work out if you know the distance an object travels and the time the object takes to travel the distance?

the speed of a moving object

2 of 48

what is the formula to find out the speed of an object?

speed = distance travelled / time taken

3 of 48

how do speed cameras work?

they take 2 photos a certain time apart and they then use the photos to calculate the vehicles speed

4 of 48

what is the equation to find out the speed of car using a speed camera?

speed of car = distance travelled between pictures / time taken between first and second picture

5 of 48

if the gradient on a distance time graph has a steep slope what does it mean?

the speed is high

6 of 48

what is acceleration of a moving object measured in?

m/s2 (metres per second squared)

7 of 48

what is the equation to work out acceleration?

acceleration = change in speed / time taken for change

8 of 48

if 2 cyclists biked opposite ways at 4m/s each way, what is the relative speed?

8 m/s

9 of 48

if 2 cyclists biked the same way and one was biking at 6 m/s and one was biking 4 m/s what is the relative speed?

2 m/s

10 of 48

what are forces measured in?

newtons

11 of 48

if an unbalanced force is applied to an object it will dpend on ....

the force applied, the mass of an object

12 of 48

if 2 trolleys are being pushed but one has a larger mass, which torlley would need more force applied to it?

the trolley with the larger mass

13 of 48

what is the equation to work out stopping distances?

stopping distances = thinking distance + braking distance

14 of 48

how is thinking distance be increased in a car etc?

travelling faster, driver is ill or under the influence, driver is distracted

15 of 48

how is braking distance increased in a cer etc??

vehicle is travelling faster, poor weather, bad road conditions, brakes are worn or flat tyres

16 of 48

braking and thinking distance is increased at faster speeds, what do road safety regulations advise?

obey safety limits, keep distance from car infront, drive slower in bad road/weather conditions

17 of 48

what is the equation for work done?

work done = force applied x distance moved in direction of force

18 of 48

work is done when ....

a force moves an object

19 of 48

what does the amount of work depend on?

size of the force and the distance the object has moved in metres.

20 of 48

what is power and what is it measured in?

power is how quickly work is done and is measured in watts

21 of 48

what are the 2 componments to high fuel consumption?

expensive to the driver and damaging to the environment

22 of 48

what is kinetic energy?

is the energy of an object has because of its movement

23 of 48

what does kinetic energy depend on?

its mass and its speed

24 of 48

which is true ........ a)car moving with greater kinetic energy will have a greater breaking distance b)cars ances with greater kinetic energy have smaller breaking dist

a

25 of 48

what is the formula for calculating kinetic energy?

kinetic energy = 1/2 x mass x speed 2 (

26 of 48

other than petrol or diesel, what else can fuel a car?

electricity, ie-battery power or solar power

27 of 48

why is the alternative to petrol and diesel more effective for the enviroment?

it doesnt pollute when in use but the pack that charges the car does pollute.

28 of 48

what does car fuel consumption depend on?

energy required to increase kinetic energy, energy required to work against friction

29 of 48

what forces what act against the movement of an object? how can they be reduced?

drag, friction, air resistance changing shape of object,using lubricant to help object slide through air

30 of 48

what are the safety aspects to cars that take in energy from a collision?

seatbelts, air bags, crumple zone, collapsible steering column

31 of 48

how do safety features in a car work?

they work by changing shape to absorb energy

32 of 48

what doe ABS stand for? what is it?

Anti-lock Braking System, which prevents tyres from skidding

33 of 48

what is traction control?

prevents car from skidding while accelerating

34 of 48

how can you calculate momentum?

momentum = mass x velocity

35 of 48

is it ... a)the quickest change in momentum means greater force experienced. OR b)the slowest change in momentum means the greatest force felt.

a

36 of 48

what is the calculation for force?

Force = change in momentum / time taken

37 of 48

How can the stopping forces in a collision be reduced?

increasing stopping or collision time OR increasing the stopping or collsion distance

38 of 48

what two parts of a skydive can be considered when trying to calculate the the speed of the decent?

before the parachute opens and after the parachute opens

39 of 48

is this TRUE or FALSE?........... at higher speeds falling objects experience less drag

FALSE, at higher speeds falling objects experience more drag

40 of 48

when does termimal speed occur?

it occurs when the drag is equal to the weight of the objects

41 of 48

what does this sentence describe?......... the speed isnt changing so the kinetic energy doesnt increase

terminal speed

42 of 48

what is the difference between weight and mass?

weight is due to force of gravity on an object and mass is the amount f matter that it contains.

43 of 48

what is gravitational potential energy?

energy stored due to the position in the earths gravitational field and its mass

44 of 48

what is the equation to calculate GPE?

gravitational potential energy = mass x gravitational field strength x vertical height

45 of 48

when an object falls it converts ........

gravitational potential energy into kinetic energy

46 of 48

if the mass of a rollercaoster car is doubled what else is also doubled?

kinetic energy

47 of 48

if the speed of the car is doubled what is quadrupled?

kinetic energy
