How do you find the speed of an object?
Speed= Distance travelled/time taken
1 of 15
How do speed cameras work?
Use painted lines on the road to measure the distance travelled by a vehicle in a set time
2 of 15
What does GRADIENT mean?
Speed
3 of 15
What does Gradient tell you in a distance-time graph?
The velocity
4 of 15
What does displacement mean?
When distance is given with a particular indication of direction.
5 of 15
What does Instantaneous velocity mean?
The speed and direction at a given moment of time
6 of 15
What does Velocity describe?
Both speed and direction
7 of 15
What does Acceleration mean?
The change in velocity in a certain amount of time
8 of 15
How do you work out Acceleration?
Acceleration= Change in velocity/ Time taken
9 of 15
What does the gradient show in a velocity-time graph?
Acceleration
10 of 15
What is partner forces/ Interaction pair?
When one object forces on another subject, it always experiences a force in return
11 of 15
What is a reaction force?
An equal and opposite force upwards
12 of 15
What does friction move?
When an object is moving relative to another one, both objects experience a force in the direction that opposes the movement
13 of 15
Is friction a reaction force?
Yes- It happens in a result of an applied force
14 of 15
What are the three types of friction?
Friction between solid surfaces which are gripping- friction between feet and ground allows you to push against it and move fowards.
