Resultant force [3]

equal and opposite force / overall force determines whether it accelerates/stopsetc. / accelerates in direction of greater force

1 of 55

Acceleration

how fast velocity is changing and speed with direction specified

2 of 55

Veloicty- the graph - gradient =

acceleration

3 of 55

flat section on velocity time graph

steady speed

4 of 55

Frcition [3]

opposite direction / 2 surfaces in contact / object passing through fluidd = drag

5 of 55

reducing drag

keep shape of object streamlined - DRAG INCREASES AS SPEED INCREASES

6 of 55

Terminal velocity

initially accelerate due to force of gravity, eventually resultant force will be zero due to the increased air resistance which increases as speed does and object will fall at STEADY SPEED

7 of 55

Parachute example of Terminal velocity

much more air resistance with same force pulling him down (weight) upward force increases greatly so so person slows down RAPIDLY due to large surface area of parachute. Forces become equal and theres a lower terminal velocity

8 of 55

Parachute terminal velocity on a velocity time graph [6]

accelerating quickly to ground // upward force increases due to large speed // forces are balanced = steady speed // parachute opes and slow down// equal forces// hits ground

9 of 55

what is work done

energy transferred e.g. stretching squashing releasing

10 of 55

elasticity forces

force acting on object causes change in shape of object // e.g. force applied to spring = stretching and storing EPE// EPE is stored when work is done to change its shape // Extension is directly proportional to force applied // if limit O P not exce

11 of 55

what is limit of proportionality

spring doesn't return to normal shape once released. OVER STRETCHING spring - stays overstretched - can't be proportional

12 of 55

Power

rate of doing work powerful = transferring lots of energy in short amount of time

13 of 55

Earth and moon GFS

EARTH = 10N MOON = 1.6N

14 of 55

GPE space shuttle example [3]

lots of kinetic energy and friction // kinetic to heat energy transferred // LOTS OF ENERGY TRANSFERRED

15 of 55

What is gravitation potential energy //GPE

energy an object has by virtue of its position in a gravitational field

16 of 55

object raised vertically =

work done AGAINST gravitational force SO OBJECT GAINS GPE

17 of 55

What does kinetic energy depend on

mass and speed

18 of 55

what is weight

force that depends on gravitational field strength which depends on where u are in the universe

19 of 55

Momentum [3]

property of moving objects - vector quantity as it has size AND DIRECTION // greater mass and velocity = greater momentum // closed system momentum before= momentum after (conservation of momentum)

20 of 55

how to calculate momentum

1. momentum of p1 and p2 (mass x velocity) // 2. add together for total momentum // 3. add masses tether and use formula

21 of 55

Crumple zones [3]

longer impact time // more impact time reduced // kinetic energy converted into other forms as it changes shape

22 of 55

Seat belt [3]

the stretch increases impact time for wearer to stop // reduces forces acting on chest // some kinetic nrgy is absorbed by stretching

23 of 55

air bags [3]

slows you down // reduces force // prevent hitting hard surfaces

24 of 55

side impact bars

direct kinetic energy to other parts (away from passenger)

25 of 55

what happens when you apply the breaks

kinetic energy goes to heat energy due to FRICTION OF BRAKE AGAINST WHEEL

26 of 55

Thinking distance

distance moved by car as driver is reacting

27 of 55

Total stopping distance

thinking + stopping distance

28 of 55

braking distance

stance travelled between applying breaks and coming to full stop

29 of 55

faster car travels =

longer stopping distance and bigger breaking distance needed

30 of 55

Thinking distance

tiredness drugs alcohol

31 of 55

braking distance

wet icy road / worn tires/brakes faulty brakes

32 of 55

Static electricity -

certain insulating materials rubbed together = electrically charged

33 of 55

static electricity negative and positive charge

negatively charged electrons are rubbed off on one material GAIN = NEGATIVELY CHARGED LOSE ELECTRONS = POSIITVELY CHARGED

34 of 55

Insulating materials -

plastic / polythene

35 of 55

prices of static electricity

electrons are transferred and theres an imbalance of electrons = overall charge? Static elec caused by movement of electrons from one to another

36 of 55

voltmeter

measures voltage / P.D.

37 of 55

Ammeter

measures current in amps

38 of 55

open switch

NO CURRENT CAN FLOW

39 of 55

Fixed resistor

lowers current

40 of 55

VRIABLE RESISITOR

Obtains orange of P.D. values

41 of 55

Thermistor [4]

increase temp = lower resistance because higher current can flow // cool temp = resistance rises // thermostats/incubators/homes

42 of 55

LDR [4]

higher light intensity = lower resistance due to the high current flowing // lower light = higher resistance // depends on intensity of light // automatic night lights and burglar detectors

43 of 55

LED

CURRENT CAN ONLY FLOW ONE WAY FORWARDS // indicated presence of current // used for lighting bc uses much smaller current // TVs , Clocks , Traffic lights N remote controls

44 of 55

Potential difference

work done / energy transferred per coulomb of charge -------- increases as current increases DIRECTLY PROPORTIONAL

45 of 55

current

flow of electric charge

46 of 55

what peens on size of electric current

RATE of flow of electric charge

47 of 55

Total resistance =

sum of all individual resistors / components

48 of 55

total p.d. of cell

sum of all individual CELLS

49 of 55

Current in series [4]

current is the same // pd is shared between components // total pd = sum of individual cells //

50 of 55

Components in parallel [3]

pd is same, current diff in diff branches // total current = sum of current in diff compenmets

51 of 55

Different resistors graphs

diff slopes due to diff resistors // constant temp // current is proportional to p.d.

52 of 55

Filament lamp

as temp of filament increases, resistance increases hence wiggle curve q

53 of 55

Diode graph [2]

v high resistance in app direction // current only flows through diode in one direction

54 of 55

Raise temp on metal [3]

atoms gain energy and vibrate more risibly - electrons collide more frequently and due to increased collisions current gets lower
