With magnifying glass object being magnified must be
closer to lens than principal focus
2 of 30
You cannot
project a virtual image onto a screen

powerful lens has a ____ focal length
shortage of workers temporarily slowed Polish economy. But was boosted by when emigrants sent back money. (£3bn in 2006)

7 parts of the eye
Pupil, iris, lens, cornea, ciliary muscle, suspensory ligaments, retina
5 of 30
Far point
farthest distance eye can see
6 of 30
Near point
closest distance eye can focus on approximately 25cm
7 of 30
As eye focuses on closer objects
power decreases, lens changes shape, and focal length decreases

Finding centre of mass (4)
1) Suspend shape and plumb line from same point. 2) Draw line along plum line 3) Suspend from different pivot and do same. 4) Centre of mass is where they cross.
9 of 30
Centre of mass
Point at which whole mass is concentrated
10 of 30
Liquids are virtually
11 of 30
Since they can flow
a force applied at one point can be transmitted to other points.
12 of 30
Pressure in liquid is
transmitted equally in all directions

Magnetic field around current carrying wire
corkscrew rule
14 of 30
coil of wire aka
15 of 30
electromagnets can be
turned on/off
16 of 30
increase strength of magnetic field around solenoid by
adding soft iron core through middle of coil
17 of 30
magnetically soft
magnetises/demagnetises very easily
18 of 30
electromagnets can be used for
picking things up, some cranes, and dropping stuff down

motor effect
lemmings RH rule
20 of 30
2 factors speed up motor effect
more current stronger magnet
21 of 30
split ring commutator
swapping polarity of DC to keep motor rotating in same direction by swapping contacts every half turn
22 of 30
Define electromagnetic induction
Creation of P.D across conductor which experiencing change in magnetic field
23 of 30
step up transformers
step voltage up : more turns on secondary than primary coil
24 of 30
step down transformers
step voltage down : more turns on primary coil than secondary
25 of 30
Stages of transofmrers
26 of 30
primary coil produces magnetic field
27 of 30
a.c produces changing magnetic field
28 of 30
induces p.d across secondary coil, inducing ac in circuit attached to secondary coil
29 of 30
