What is the relationship between initial speed, final speed, distance and time?

Average speed (m/s) = (u +v)/ 2 NOTE: use this when the speed is changing uniformly Distance travelled = (u+v)t/ 2 NOTE: use this when working out instantaneous speed

1 of 32

What does the gradient of a speed-time graph show?

How fast the object is accelerating. the area underneath is equal to the distance traveled.

2 of 32

What does the shape of a speed-time graph show?

the greater the area the faster the speed (greater acceleration)

3 of 32

What is the significance of positive and negative

Positive acceleration is shown by the graph sloping upwards Negative acceleration is shown by the graph sloping downwards

4 of 32

What is the equation for acceleration?

acceleration (m/S2) = change in speed (or velocity) / time

5 of 32

What is the relationship between force, mass and acceleration?

force = mass x acceleration

6 of 32

What factors affect thinking distance, breaking distance and their implications on road safety?

thinking distance: tired- drugs/alcohol- travelling faster- distraction/lack of concentration Braking distance: poor road conditions- car is poorley mantained/ speed is increased/ heavy car Increase in either is unsafe as it increases the chances

What is the formula for weight?

weight= mass x gravitational field strength

8 of 32

What is the formula for power?

power= work done/ time taken

Apply the equation for kinetic energy

KE (J) = 0.5 mv2

How do electric power cars cause pollution?

The batteries need reacharging . Recharging uses electricity from a power station. Power station pollute the local atmosphere and cause acid rain.

What is the relationship between momentum, mass, velocity, force and time?

momentum = mass x velocity force = change in momentum/ time

Explain how any why crumple zones, seats belts and air bags reduce energy?

-Crumple zones at the front and rear absorb energy by changing shape -Seat belts stretch a little so some of the person's kinectic energy is converted into elastic energy -Air bags absorb some of the person's kinetic energy by squashing up around

Explain the motion of a falling object in terms of balanced and unbalanced forces?

When the weight of parachutist is greater than the air resistance- the person accelerates When the two are equal the person reaches a terminal speed When the air resistance is larger than the parachutist weight the person slows down and the air

What is the rate of acceleration for an object that is falling from the surface of the Earth?

All objects have the same acceleration point on the Earths surafce.They therefore have the same gravitational potential energy (GPE) which is 10N/kg on Earth.

15 of 32

use the equation GPE=mgh and interpret examples of energy transfer from GPE to KE

loss of gravitational potential energy (GPE) = gain in kinetic energy (KE)

16 of 32

How is energy transferred across a roller coaster and what is the effect of mass and speed on kinetic energy?

electrical energy--> GPE--> kentic energy If speed doubles KE quadruples If mass doubles KE doubles

17 of 32

Explain the realtionship between speed, distance and time to include the effect of changing quantities

Greater distance - higher speed and greater time Higher speed- Greater distance and shorter time Greater time- Higher distance and shorter speed

18 of 32

Interpret distant-time graphs

-the steeper the gradient the higher the speed -straight lines indicates that the speed is constant -curved line shows the speed is changing

19 of 32

How do you calculate acceleration and distance traveled from speed-time graphs

Gradient of line= acceleration Distance = the area under a speed-time graph

20 of 32

What is the formula for acceleration?

acceleration= force/mass(kg)

21 of 32

Interpret and explain graphs for thinking and breaking against speed

- Thinking distance increases linearly alongside speed so is a straight line -Breaking distance increases as a squarred relationship so is a curved line

22 of 32

Explain the derivation of the equation power= force x speed

power= work done/time taken =(force x distance)/ time taken =force x (distance/time) =force x speed

23 of 32

Explain kinetic energy in terms of braking distance

When a car stops its kentic energy changes into heat in the brakes, tyres and road.Therefore when the speed of the car doubles the kentic enrgy and the breaking distance quadruple Hence why there are speed limits and penalties for drivers who exceed

24 of 32

Explain and evaluate the factors upon which fuel consumption depends

-amount of energy required to increase its kinectic energy -amount of energy required to do work against friction -speed -how the car is driven (excessive acceleration and decleration, constant braking and speed changed) -road conditions such

25 of 32

explain relationship between force mass and acceleration

If the change in momentum happen in a short time the object will experience large acceleration or deceleration. From Newton's second law of motion this require a large force. This states F= ma

26 of 32

Evaluate car safety feature

-safety features ansob energy/change shape/ reduce injure by reducing momentum therefore reduce force on the occupants -problems with seat belts : risk of chest injury, trapped in a fire, drivers encouraged to drive less carefully

27 of 32

Explain how ABS brakes work

ABS brakes is the primary safety feature to help prevent a crash.. Wheel-seed sensors send information to a computer about the rotational speed of the wheels. The copmuter controls the pressure to the breaks via a pump, to prevent the wheels locking

28 of 32

How do falling objects reach terminal speed?

At first the object accelerates displacing more air particles. This creates greater air resistance so slows down the speed. Therefore ultimately the higher the spped the more air resistance. When weight becomes equal to air reistance the forces are

29 of 32

Explain how gravitational field strength varies with height and position of the Earth's surface

-GPE varies with postion on the Earths surface 9.78N/kg at the equator and 9.83N/kg at the poles) -GPE varies with height above or depth below the Earth's surface

30 of 32

What are the energy transfers when an object is falling at terminal speed?

as the object falls friction with the air transfers the lost GPE to the surroundings. the air particles around the object gain internal or thermal energy so increase in temperature

31 of 32

What equation is used when an object falls due to kinetic energy whilst ignoring gravity

mgh = 0.5 mv2 m=mass g= acceleration due to gravity h= height v= speed
