the force exerted per unit cross-sectional area (pascals)

10 of 43

scalar quantity

has a magnitude only

11 of 43

has a magnitude and direction

12 of 43

average speed

distance/ time

13 of 43

terminal velocity

the velocity at which the weight = drag

14 of 43

work done

force X distance moved in the direction of force

15 of 43

the energy transferred when a force of 1 newton moves a distance of 1 metre in the direction of force

16 of 43

kinetic energy

KE= 1/2mv^2

17 of 43

gravity

9.81 ms^-2

18 of 43

stopping distance

thinking distance + braking distance

19 of 43

thinking distance

the distance travelled between the moment when you first see a reason to stop to the moment when you first apply the breaks

20 of 43

braking distance

the distance from when the vehicles brakes is applied to when it fully comes to a halt

21 of 43

centre of gravity

the point where the entire weight of an object appears to act

22 of 43

moment

moment = force x perpendicular distance of the line of action of the force from the axes or point of rotation

23 of 43

conditions for equilibrium

the net force on it must be zero and the net moment must be zero

24 of 43

principle of moment

for a body in rotational equilibrium, the sum of the anticlockwise moments about any point is equal to the sum of the clockwise moments about the same point

25 of 43

momentum

mass x velocity

26 of 43

principle of conservation of momentum

for a closed system, in any specific direction, the total momentum before an interaction (collision) is equal to the total momentum after the interaction

27 of 43

closed system

no external forces acting

28 of 43

elastic collision

momentum and kinetic energy are conserved

29 of 43

inelastic collision

momentum is conserved but kinetic energy is lost

30 of 43

couple

a pair of equal, parallel but opposite forces which tend to produce rotation only

31 of 43

torque of a couple

one of the forces x perpendicular separation of those forces

32 of 43

conditions for a pair of forces to form a couple

equal in magnitude, parallel but opposite in direction, separated by a distance

33 of 43

newtons 1st law

an object will remain at rest or keep travelling at a constant velocity unless it is acted upon by external forces

34 of 43

newtons 2nd law

the net force acting on an object is directly proportional to the rate of change of the linear momentum of that object. The net force and the change in momentum are the same direction.

35 of 43

newtons 3rd law

when two bodies interact, the forces they exert on each other are equal and opposite

36 of 43

stretching forces

tensile forces

37 of 43

squashing forces

compressive forces

38 of 43

Hookes law

the extension of a spring is directly proportional to the force applied, as long as the elastic limits is not exceeded

39 of 43

force constant of a spiring

the stiffness, obtained by the gradient

40 of 43

elastic potential energy

the energy stored in an object because of its deformation

41 of 43

tensile stress

the force applied per unit cross-sectional area of the wire (pascals)

42 of 43

tensile strain

the fractional change in the original length of the wire (%)
