Physics mock

work done=
force x distance
1 of 28
Power =
work done/ time taken
2 of 28
Energy to heat a substance
mass x specific heat capacity x change of temp
3 of 28
spreading energy from a source
4 of 28
moving electrons to create an ion
5 of 28
alpha particles
-relatively large,stopped by sheet of paper and few centimeters of air, deflected by electric and magnetic fields, charge of 2+, not very penetrating so easily cause ionisation
6 of 28
Beta particles
More penetrating and less ionising than alpha, smaller than alpha, charge of -1, electrons, balancing negative charge of a neutron becoming a proton, stopped by aluminium
7 of 28
Gamma ray
Highly penetrating; not very ionising,; no charge; no mass; it is an electromagnetic wave, stopped by lead
8 of 28
Made of single electron
9 of 28
Takes two protons and two neutrons away from the nucleus
10 of 28
Has no charge
11 of 28
not made of any particles
12 of 28
Dangerous inside of the body
13 of 28
Dangerous outside of the body
14 of 28
When an element decays by emitting an alpha particle its atomic no. goes down 2, the mass mo. goes down
15 of 28
Beta decay
A neutron decays into a proton and an electron
16 of 28
energy transferred ( in J)/ Time Taken (in s)
17 of 28
Half life
Time it takes for half the nuclei to decay
18 of 28
Why does the rate of neutrons released need to be maintained at one?
To control the chain reaction so it's in a steady state
19 of 28
Nuclear Fusion
Lighter elements like hydrogen can be fused together to create heavier elements like helium The mass difference becomes energy
20 of 28
3 common magnetic elements
Iron, Nickel, Cobalt
21 of 28
Magnetic Field line
A magnetic field line is a region in which a magnetic material experiences a force
22 of 28
Magnetically soft material
Iron- it quickly gains or loses its magnetism
23 of 28
Magnetically hard material
Steel- it retains magnetism
24 of 28
How to strengthen the magnetic field
By wrapping more coil around the iron bar
25 of 28
How to increase the electromagnet
Greater current, more turns around the coil
26 of 28
how does a loudspeaker work
By using the motor effect
27 of 28
Transformer equation
secondary voltage/primary voltage = no. of turns on secondary coil/ no. of turns on primary coil ... output voltage/10
