Physics

Define the term: Effeciency
Energy efficiency is a measure of how well a device transfers energy into the form we want.
1 of 43
What is the calculation for effeciency?
efficiency = ( useful energy transferred ÷ energy supplied ) × 100
2 of 43
Can effeciency ever be 100 of a product, and why?
No as some of it is always lost to watched energy (heat, sound).
3 of 43
How can efficiency in mechanical systems be increased?
Making it more aero-dynamic; less heat loss; more lubricated, reduce friction
4 of 43
What is a U Value?
How much thermal energy transfers each second
5 of 43
What does a High U-Value show?
More energy transfer every second meaning it loses heat quicker.
6 of 43
What do resistors in Series circuits do to form a greater resistance?
Add together
7 of 43
What do resistors in a Paralel circuit do to reduce total resistance?
Combine together
8 of 43
What is the Specific heat capacity of a material mean?
The amount of energy required to raise 1KG of the material by 1C.
9 of 43
Equation for Energy and their units?
Energy (J) = Mass (KG) * SHC (J/KHc) * Change in temp (C)
10 of 43
What do large U-Values allow?
They allow heat energy to flow more quickly.
11 of 43
What effect would reducing the U-Value of a insulator have?
Makes it more efficient at maintaining a temperature and cheaper to insulate/run
12 of 43
What is the equation for Resistance?
V = I*$
13 of 43
In resistance, what does V stand for? And it's unit?
Potential Difference (V)
14 of 43
In resistance, what does I stand for? And it's unit?
Current (A)
15 of 43
In resistance, what does R stand for? And it's unit?
Resistance (Ohms)
16 of 43
The current in a series circuit is what through each component?
The same
17 of 43
The current in a parallel circuit is the sum of the current in ?
In the seperate branches
18 of 43
How is the P.D in a series circuit spread?
It's shared
19 of 43
What is the P.D in a paralel circuit like in each branch of the circuit?
The same
20 of 43
Unit for Charge?
In Coulombs, C
21 of 43
Charge (Q) = ?
Charge (Q) = Current (I) (in Amps) * Time (t) (in Seconds)
22 of 43
In parallel circuits the current is ____ through every component
The same
23 of 43
In series circuits the voltage across each components does what to the battery voltage?
Adds up to the battery voltage
24 of 43
What does the voltage of each component in a series circuit depend on?
Depends on it's resistance
25 of 43
What will never change in a series circuit?
Amps
26 of 43
If a objects velocity changes, what also will change?
It's momentum.
27 of 43
Is acceleration a Vector or scalar?
Vector
28 of 43
What is Scalar?
Only magnitude
29 of 43
What is Vector?
Both direction and magnitude (size)
30 of 43
What does displacement mean?
Distance from orginal start point
31 of 43
No resultant force = ?
No change in momentum
32 of 43
What does the acceleration of a object depend on? (2 things)
The resultant force applies and the mass of the object
33 of 43
What is Enertia?
Something which has a resistance to motion
34 of 43
Momentum is ____
Converved
35 of 43
An increase in stopping distance is also a increase of?
Impact time + Time of collision
36 of 43
What is Impact force equal to?
The rate of change of momentum
37 of 43
Increasing the time of an impact will do what?
Reduce the impact forces (meaning it lasts longer)
38 of 43
What happens when temperature increases on a resistor of a conductor?
Resistance increases of the conductor
39 of 43
In low temperature's, the resistance of a thermistor is high meaning?
Little current can flow through
40 of 43
At high temperatures, the resistance of a thermistor is low, how does this effect current?
More current can flow through
41 of 43
In the dark; what is the resistance of a LDR like? And what does this mean?
High so little current can flow through
42 of 43
In the bright light, what is the resistance of a LDR like? And what does this mean?
The resistance of LDR is low, and more current can flow through it.
