Graphs of motion Graphs of motion are a visual representation of the motion of a body They can either show the change in displacement or change in velocity of an object LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion
P2 1.1 Distance-time graphs How can we tell from a distance-time graph if an object is stationary or moving at constant speed? How do we calculate speed of a body? The slope on a distance-time graph represents speed. Speed (metre/second, m/s) = distance travelled (m) time taken (s) D S t
Using distance-time graphs How steep the line is (the gradient) on a distance-time graph tells you the speed that an object is moving The steeper the line, the faster something is moving Speed is measured in m/s LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion
Calculating the gradient Gradient = LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion Change in y Change in x Gradient = ∆y ∆x The gradient of a distance-time graph represent the speed of an object.
P2 1.2/3 Acceleration and Velocity time graphs What is the difference between speed and velocity? What is acceleration and what are its units? How can we tell from a velocity-time graph if an object is accelerating or decelerating? What does the area under a velocity-time graph represent? Velocity is speed in a given direction (units – m/s). Two objects may travel at the same speed but may have different velocities. Acceleration is the change in an object’s velocity per second (m/s 2 ) Acceleration = change in velocity (m/s). Time taken for the change (seconds) The slope of the line on a velocity-time graph represents acceleration. The area under the line on a velocity-time graph represents distance travelled.
Acceleration Acceleration can be calculated using the following equation: LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion Acceleration = Change in velocity Time taken Final velocity – initial velocity Time taken Acceleration = v - u t a = a = acceleration (m/s 2 ) v = final velocity (m/s) u = initial velocity (m/s) t = time (s)
Using velocity-time graphs How steep the line is (the gradient) on a velocity-time graph tells you the acceleration of that object The steeper the line, the greater the acceleration acceleration is measured in m/s 2 LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion
Measuring the acceleration The gradient of a velocity time graph represent the acceleration of an object. LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion Gradient = Change in y Change in x Gradient = ∆y ∆x
P2 2.1 Forces between objects What is the unit of force? What can we say about the forces acting on two interacting objects? When two objects interact, they always exert equal and opposite forces on each other. The unit of force is Newtons (N)
P2 2.2 Resultant force What is a resultant force? What happens if the resultant force on an object is zero? What happens if the resultant force on an object is not zero? We can work out the effect of the forces on an object by replacing them with a single force called the resultant force. When the resultant force is zero, the object: -remains stationary OR - Moves at constant speed in the same direction
Resultant force If you have multiple forces acting on an object, you can replace them with one single force that has the effect of all the other forces combined together. This single force is called the resultant force LO: calculate the forces acting on an object
Rules for calculating the resultant 1.Forces that act in the same direction can be added together 2.Forces that act opposite to each other must be taken away 3.Forces that act vertically and horizontally CAN NOT be added and taken away from each other and MUST be considered separately. LO: calculate the forces acting on an object
Effects of forces - acceleration LO: calculate the forces acting on an object The resultant force on a stationary (not moving) object is zero! The resultant force on an object travelling at a constant velocity is zero! If a resultant force is applied to an object, either moving or stationary, it will accelerate in the direction of the force
P2 2.3 Force and acceleration How is resultant force, acceleration and mass related to each other? Resultant force (N) = mass (kg) x acceleration (m/s 2 ) F = ma
Calculating forces F = force (N) m = mass (kg) a = acceleration (m/s 2 ) LO: calculate the forces acting on an object F = m x a m x a F
Weight is a force W = weight (N) m = mass (kg) g = strength of gravity (m/s 2 ) LO: calculate the forces acting on an object W = m x g m x g W
Streamlining LO: understand the factors that affect the stopping distance of a car Most of the resistance forces that act on a car are due to air resistance. Streamlining a car will increase the top speed, even if the engine is giving the same power output
P2 2.4 On the road What is the resultant force on a vehicle travelling at constant velocity? What does the stopping distance of a vehicle depend on? What factors can increase the stopping distance of a vehicle? For any car travelling at constant velocity, the resultant force on it is zero. The braking force needed to stop a vehicle depends on a) the velocity of the vehicle and b) the mass of the vehicle. Stopping distance = thinking distance + the braking distance Factors affecting stopping distances: Tiredness, alcohol, drugs, how fast the vehicle is travelling, adverse road conditions and poorly maintained vehicles.
Stopping distance The stopping distance of a car is the minimum distance that a car can safely stop in Stopping distance = thinking distance + braking distance LO: understand the factors that affect the stopping distance of a car
Thinking distance The thinking distance is the distance travelled by the vehicle in the time it takes for the driver to react LO: understand the factors that affect the stopping distance of a car alcohol other drugs and some medicines tiredness distractions, such as mobile phones speed
Stopping distance The stopping distance is the distance travelled by the vehicle during the time the braking force acts LO: understand the factors that affect the stopping distance of a car weather condition of tyres/brakes condition of road speed
15+38 = 53m
P2 2.5 Falling objects What is the difference between weight and mass? What is terminal velocity? The weight of an object is the force of gravity on it (Newtons, N) The mass of an object is the quantity of matter (kilograms, kg) Gravitational field strength on Earth = The force of gravity on a 1kg object on Earth. Weight (N) = mass (kg) x gravitational field strength (N/kg) As an object falls, its acceleration decreases as the drag force starts to increase. The object starts to travel at constant velocity – this is called terminal velocity.
Terminal Velocity Consider a skydiver: 1)At the start of his jump the air resistance is ZERO so he ACCELERATES downwards. 2) As his speed increases his air resistance will INCREASE 3) Eventually the air resistance will be big enough to EQUAL the skydiver’s weight (force caused by gravity). At this point the forces are balanced so his speed becomes CONSTANT - this is called TERMINAL VELOCITY
Terminal Velocity Consider a skydiver: 4)When he opens his parachute the air resistance suddenly INCREASES, causing him to start SLOWING DOWN. 5) Because he is slowing down his air resistance will DECREASE again until it balances his WEIGHT. The skydiver has now reached a new, lower TERMINAL VELOCITY.
Velocity-time graph for terminal velocity… Velocity Time Speed increases… Terminal velocity reached… Parachute opens – diver slows down New, lower terminal velocity reached Diver hits the ground On the Moon
P2 3.1 Energy, Work and Power What do we mean by the word ‘work’ and ‘power’ in science? What is the relationship between work and energy? What happens to work done against frictional forces? How do we calculate gravitational potential energy? ‘Work’ is done on an object if it moved by a force = energy transferred Work done (Joules, J) = force (N) X distance moved (m) Work done to overcome friction is mainly transformed into heat energy Gravitational potential energy is a measure of the work done against gravity. GPE (J) = mass (kg) x gravity (N/kg) x height (m) Power is the amount of energy transferred each second.
Calculating work LO: understand how energy can be transferred The work done by an object is equal to the amount of energy that it transfers Work done = force x distance W = f x d W = work done(J) f = force (N) d = distance(m)
Gravitational Potential Energy GPE = mass x LO: understand the nature of gravitational potential energy Gravitational Field strength x height GPE = m x g x h GPE = gravitational potential energy (J) m = mass (kg) g = gravitational field strength (N/kg) h = height (m)
Calculating power LO: understand how energy can be transferred Power is the amount of work done/energy transferred in a given time Power = work done / time P = W / t P = power (W) W = work done (J) t = time (s)
P2 3.2 Kinetic and elastic energy What are kinetic energy and elastic potential energy? How does the kinetic energy of an object depend on its speed? How can we calculate kinetic energy? Kinetic energy (J) = ½ x mass (kg) x speed 2 (m/s) 2 Elastic potential energy is the energy stored in an elastic object when work is done on it to change its shape.
Kinetic energy KE = ½ x m x v² LO: understand the nature of kinetic energy KE = kinetic energy (J) m = mass (kg) v = velocity (m/s)
Stretching objects When you stretch an object, work is done to change its shape. While it remains stretched the object stores elastic potential energy Most materials have a range where the force and extension are proportional LO: understand the link between force and extension of an object The constant gradient here shows us that the force and extension are proportional
Material properties Beyond a point, the material will start to show plastic behaviour. A small increase in force will give a large increase in extension. The deformation will be irreversible (the material will not go back to the original shape when the force is taken away) LO: understand the link between force and extension of an object Beyond the proportional limit, the material shows plastic behaviour. The extension is now much harder to predict
Hooke’s Law Hooke’s law states that: The extension of an object is directly proportional to the force that is applied to it provided that the limit of proportionality is not exceeded LO: understand the link between force and extension of an object
Hooke’s Law Hooke’s law can be written as: F = k x e LO: understand the link between force and extension of an object F = Force (N) k = spring constant (N/m) e = extension (m)
P2 3.3 Momentum and impact How can we calculate momentum? What is its unit? What happens to the total momentum of two objects when they collide? What is the impact force and how can it be reduced? Momentum of a moving object = its mass x velocity Unit is kilogram metre/second (kgm/s) When two objects collide momentum is conserved. The impact force can be reduced by using air bags and crumple zones.
Momentum P = m x v LO: understand what is meant by momentum P = momentum (kgm/s) m = mass (kg) v = velocity (m/s)
Conservation of momentum In a closed system, the total momentum before an event and the total momentum after an event are the same. This is called conservation of momentum. Events you may be asked about in your exams are: Collisions Explosions LO: understand what is meant by momentum
Brakes and crumple zones Brakes, air bags and crumple zones are the main safety features on a car. They increase the time taken for the impact. As F=ma and acceleration is change in velocity per second, the longer the impact time, the less force is transferred to the occupants of the car. LO: explain how safety features on a car work
P2 4 Current Electricity. What are charge, current and potential difference and how are they linked? What is Ohm’s Law? What happens to current, potential difference and resistance in series and parallel circuits? Current is the flow of electrical charges around a circuit, measured in Amps (A). Potential difference is the difference in energy per change at two points in a circuit, measured in volts (V). Ohm’s Law states that Potential difference is proportional to current as long as the temperature remains constant. Ohm’s Law: V=IxR Series circuits consist of one ‘loop’ of components through which electrical current can pass. Parallel circuits consist of many branches or paths for the electrical current to take.
What is an atom made up of? LO: understand static electricity Protons – Positively charged particles found inside the nucleus Neutrons – Neutral particles found inside the nucleus Electrons – Negatively charged particles that orbit the nucleus
Static electricity by friction LO: understand static electricity When you rub one of the rods with the cloths, you create static electricity. This happens in one of two ways. For the polythene rod, the dry cloth transfers electrons TO the surface of the rod and gives it a negative charge
Static electricity by friction LO: understand static electricity When you rub one of the rods with the cloths, you create static electricity. This happens in one of two ways. For the perspex rod, the dry cloth transfers electrons away from the surface of the rod. This gives it a positive charge
Static electricity rules LO: understand static electricity 1.Like (The same) charges repel 2.Unlike (The opposite) charges attract
Calculating current Current = Charge/time I = Q/t LO: Understand how to create electrical circuits I = Current (Amps, A) Q = Charge (Coulombs, c) t = Time (s) Current: This is the flow of electric charges around a circuit. The size of the current is dependent on the rate of flow of electric charges.
Calculating potential difference Potential difference = work done/charge V = W/Q LO: Understand how to create electrical circuits V = P.D. (Volts, V) W = Work done (Joules, J) Q = Charge (Coulombs, c) Potential Difference (Voltage): The potential difference between two points is the work done per unit charge between two points
Calculating energy Energy = potential difference x Charge E = V x Q LO: Understand how to create electrical circuits E = Energy transferred (Joules, J) V = P.D. (Volts, V) Q = Charge (Coulombs, c)
Ohm’s Law Ohm’s Law states that the current through a resistor is directly proportional to the potential difference (voltage) provided the temperature is constant LO: Understand the relationship-between current and voltage in a circuit
Ohm’s Law Potential difference = Current x Resistance V = IR LO: Understand the relationship-between current and voltage in a circuit V = P.D. (V) I = Current (A) R = Resistance (Ohms, Ω)
Series circuits IN A SERIES CIRCUIT, EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED END TO END. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THE CURRENT TO SPLIT IN THE CIRCUIT. 1)The current through each component in a series circuit is the same 2)The potential difference of the source is shared out between the components in a series circuit
Parallel circuits IN A PARALLEL CIRCUIT, THERE ARE BRANCHES THAT SEPERATE THE CIRCUIT INTO SMALLER CIRCUITS. THERE IS MORE THAN ONE PATH FOR THE CURRENT TO TAKE. 1)The potential difference across each component is the same in a parallel circuit 2)The total current in the circuit is the sum of the currents through the individual components in the circuit
Non-Ohmic Components1 An LED does not follow Ohm’s law and is designed to only allow current to flow through in one direction LO: Understand the relationship-between current and voltage in a circuit
Non-Ohmic Components2 An LED does not follow Ohm’s law and will only light up when current to flows through in the right direction. If current tries to flow in the other direction it encounters a MAHOOSIVE resistance! LO: Understand the relationship-between current and voltage in a circuit
P2 5 Mains Electricity. What is the difference between A.C. and D.C? The features of a Plug. How fuses and circuit breakers (RCCBs) work to make electrical appliances safe. Alternating current (A.C.) oscillated forwards and backwards. Direct Current (D.C.) only flows in one direction. A 3 pin plug contains a live, neutral and earth wire, along with a fuse, and cable grip. Fuses melt when too much current passes through them, breaking the circuit. Circuit Breakers measure the difference between the live and neutral wires and ‘trip’ when this is too big.
AC vs DC If you turn on any battery powered device the electricity will only ever flow in one direction. This is called DIRECT CURRRENT (d.c.) as the electricity goes around in just one direction. LO: describe features of mains electricity
AC vs DC However, the same isn’t true for mains electricity. Mains electricity uses ALTERNATING CURRENT (a.c.) which repeatedly flows in one direction and then reverses its flow. The frequency is how many times it changes direction in one second LO: describe features of mains electricity
Key points 1.Mains electricity uses a.c. 2.Mains electricity is at 230V 3.Mains electricity has a frequency of 50Hz. This means it changes direction 50 times in one second LO: describe features of mains electricity
Cables and Plugs Cables and wires are designed to allow people to use them without risk of hurting themselves. Most appliances are supplied with three-core cable. This means the cable is made up of three separate wires. LO: describe features of mains electricity
Components of a plug and cable 1)Live wire (brown) – This carries the current to the appliance. 2)Neutral wire (blue) – This completes the circuit and is usually at 0V 3)Earth wire (green/yellow) – This ‘earths’ the appliance in case of a fault 4)Fuse – This stops the flow of current if it gets too high LO: describe features of mains electricity
Earthing Components are earthed to make sure you don’t get an electric shock if the live wire accidentally touches the casing. The electricity will flow harmlessly through the earth wire instead of through you when you touch the casing. However, appliances with plastic cases (hairdryers etc.) don’t have earth wires. LO: describe features of mains electricity
Fuses A fuse is a component that has a wire running through it made of a different material/thickness than the rest of the circuit. It is designed to stop current that is too high flowing through it. LO: describe features of mains electricity
Fuses Fuses have a rating based on the amount of current they will allow through. For example, a 13A fuse will allow a maximum of 13 amps of current to flow through. If MORE than this tries to flow through, the wire heats up and melts, breaking the circuit and protecting the appliance LO: describe features of mains electricity
Circuit Breakers Circuit breakers are fitted in newer homes. They measure the difference in current in the live and neutral wires. If the difference is too great, an electromagnetic switch opens (‘trips’) which stops the flow of current. They work a lot faster than fuses and can be reset easily LO: describe features of mains electricity
Calculating electrical power LO: describe features of mains electricity Power = Potential difference x Current P = V x I P = Power (w) V = P.D. (V) I = Current (A)
2 (a) (iii) The bulb is at full brightness when the potential difference across the bulb is 12 V. The current through the bulb is then 3 A. Calculate the power of the bulb when it is at full brightness and give the unit. Use the correct equation from the Physics Equations Sheet Power = (3 marks)
P2 6 Radioactivity. The discovery of the nucleus. The different types of ionising radiation. What happens during nuclear fission and nuclear fusion. How to calculate half life. Rutherford discovered the presence of the nucleus after preforming his alpha scattering experiment. Ionising radiation occurs in the form of alpha particles, beta particles and gamma waves. In nuclear fission, heavy unstable nuclei split to release ionising radiation and lots of energy. In nuclear fusion, helium nuclei fuse to become hydrogen nuclei, creating LOTS of energy. Half life is the time taken for half of a quantity of radioactive isotope to decay, It is useful in dating materials.
The Plum Pudding Model LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay
Enter Rutherford LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay Ernest Rutherford fired alpha particles at gold foil. Alpha particles have a positive charge and he expected them to go through the particle, with a small amount of deviation from their path
Gold Foil Experiment LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay The results are very different! Most alpha particles go straight through with no deviation! Some, however, are diverted through very large angles! The physics community is flummoxed by this finding!

Conclusions LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay Most of the fast, highly charged alpha particles went whizzing straight through undeflected. SUGGESTS THAT MOST OF THE ATOM IS EMPTY SPACE!!
Conclusions LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay Some of the alpha particles were deflected back through large angles. A very small number of alpha particles were deflected backwards! SUGGESTS THAT THERE IS A CONCENTRATED POSITIVE MASS SOMEWHERE IN THE ATOM.
Conclusions LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay A very small number of alpha particles were deflected backwards! SUGGESTS THAT THE CONCENTRATED MASS IS MINISCULE COMPARED TO THE SIZE OF THE REST OF THE ATOM, BUT CONTAINS MOST OF THE MASS
Types of Radiation LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay There are three different kinds of radiation. Each one has a unique nature and penetration Alpha radiation: This particle is made up of two protons and two neutrons (i.e. a Helium nucleus). It has a charge of +2 and moves slowly because of it’s large mass. It can be stopped by a few cm of air or by a piece of paper
Types of Radiation LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay There are three different kinds of radiation. Each one has a unique nature and penetration Beta radiation: During beta radiation, a neutron turns into a proton inside the nucleus and gives off an electron, which is fired from the nucleus. The electron is small and light and so moves very fast! Beta particles can be stopped by a thin sheet of aluminium
Types of Radiation LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay There are three different kinds of radiation. Each one has a unique nature and penetration Gamma radiation: Gamma radiation usually follows alpha or beta decay. It is NOT a particle like the other two. It is a high energy EM wave that travels at the speed of light (the fastest that anything can travel Joel). It can only be stopped by a very thick piece of lead or concrete.
Isotopes LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission An isotope of an element has the same number of protons and neutrons as the original, but a different number of neutrons.
Radioactivity of a substance LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Radioactivity of a substance LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission As a radioactive substance decays, the number of particles left in it will start to reduce. Therefore the radioactivity of the substance will begin to decrease. It will continue to decrease, until the radioactivity has reached zero!
Half-life LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission The half-life of a substance is the time it takes for HALF of the particles in a sample to decay or for the radioactivity of a substance to decrease by HALF.
Nuclear Fission LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission Nuclear fission is a process that uses atoms to generate VAST amounts of energy.
Uranium nucleus Neutron Nuclear Fission LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission To begin with, we have a simple Uranium nucleus. Uranium is used because it is already unstable. A slow moving neutron is fired at the Uranium.
Nuclear fusion LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission Although the names sound very similar, fission and fusion are VERY DIFFERENT PROCESSES.
Nuclear fusion LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission In nuclear fusion, two nuclei are fused together to release energy. It is the opposite of nuclear fission.
Where does this happen? LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission The sun is made up of mainly hydrogen. The high temperature on the sun allows the hydrogen to fuse together and make helium, releasing massive amounts of energy in the process
P2 7 Stars. The features of the life cycle of a main sequence star like the sun. What could happen in the life of a star larger than then sun. Main sequence stars go through the following stages: Nebulae – protostar – main sequence – red giant – white dwarf – black dwarf. Larger stars could form super red giants, these will then turn in to a supernova – neutron star/black hole.
Nebula LO: understand the lifecycle of a star All stars start their lives as part of a nebula. Nebulae are large clouds of dust and gas (mainly hydrogen).
Protostar LO: understand the lifecycle of a star Over millions of years, gravity will cause the dust and gas in the nebula to come together. As it does this, the temperature increases until hydrogen can fuse. When this happens, a protostar is born. This is kind of like a ‘baby’ star.
Main sequence star LO: understand the lifecycle of a star The main sequence star is the next stage after a protostar. Hydrogen fusion is now in full flow and the star is much hotter and brighter than the protostar.
Red Giant star LO: understand the lifecycle of a star When a star runs out of hydrogen, it begins to fuse other, heavier elements. This releases more energy, causing the star to expand. It also gives off red light, giving it the name ‘Red Giant’.
White dwarf LO: understand the lifecycle of a star When the red giant has run out of all fuel and can fuse nothing more, it will lose its outer layers. This leaves just the core, which is still extremely hot. It is so hot it glows white hot, giving the name to this stage – the ‘white dwarf’.
Black dwarf LO: understand the lifecycle of a star After a long enough time, the white dwarf will cool down enough so that it stops glowing white hot. It is now called a ‘black dwarf’.
Red Super Giant star LO: understand the lifecycle of a star Following the main sequence, the star begins to fuse together heavier elements. However, as it has far more fuel, it expands to a much larger size and gives off much more energy.
Supernova LO: understand the lifecycle of a star For very heavy stars, once they have run out of fuel, the star begins to collapse in on itself. It continues to collapse until it reaches a critical point when it can’t collapse any more. This causes a MASSIVE shockwave!
Supernova LO: understand the lifecycle of a star The shockwave is so large that the outer layers EXPLODE outwards! The explosion only lasts seconds, but can release as much energy in those seconds as the star has released up to that point! It can be as bright as the light from 10billion stars.
Neutron star LO: understand the lifecycle of a star After a supernova, only the star’s core is left behind. During the collapsing process, this core is turned into just neutrons. The resulting ‘neutron star’ is very very dense. One spoonful of a neutron star would weigh more than the Earth!
Black hole LO: understand the lifecycle of a star In some very very rare cases, the core of a star left over after a supernova will continue to collapse. It will keep getting smaller and smaller until the whole star has collapsed into an infinitely small point.
Black hole LO: understand the lifecycle of a star This ‘singularity’ has an immense gravitational force. It’s attraction is so strong that not even light can escape from it. Hence the name ‘black hole’.
