Graphs of motion are a visual representation of the motion of a body
LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion 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

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
LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion 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 Change in y Gradient = Change in x âˆ†y Gradient = âˆ†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 â€“ m/s). Two objects may travel at the same speed but may have different velocities. Acceleration is the change in an objectâ€™s velocity per second (m/s2) 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 a = acceleration (m/s2) v = final velocity (m/s)
LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion Acceleration Acceleration can be calculated using the following equation: Change in velocity Acceleration = Time taken Final velocity â€“ initial velocity Acceleration = Time taken v - u a = acceleration (m/s2) v = final velocity (m/s) u = initial velocity (m/s) t = time (s) a = t

Using velocity-time graphs
LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion 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/s2

Measuring the acceleration
LO: understand how to draw and interpret graphs of motion Measuring the acceleration Change in y Gradient = Change in x âˆ†y Gradient = âˆ†x The gradient of a velocity time graph represent the acceleration of an object.

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

LO: calculate the forces acting on an object
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

Rules for calculating the resultant
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Rules for calculating the resultant Forces that act in the same direction can be added together Forces that act opposite to each other must be taken away Forces that act vertically and horizontally CAN NOT be added and taken away from each other and MUST be considered separately.

Effects of forces - acceleration
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Effects of forces - acceleration 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/s2) F = ma

F m x a F = m x a Calculating forces F = force (N) m = mass (kg)
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Calculating forces F = m x a F F = force (N) m = mass (kg) a = acceleration (m/s2) m x a

W m x g W = m x g Weight is a force W = weight (N) m = mass (kg)
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Weight is a force W = m x g W W = weight (N) m = mass (kg) g = strength of gravity (m/s2) m x g

LO: understand the factors that affect the stopping distance of a car
Streamlining 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 = thinking distance + braking distance
LO: understand the factors that affect the stopping distance of a car 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

What factors will affect
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 alcohol other drugs and some medicines tiredness What factors will affect The thinking distance distractions, such as mobile phones 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 â€“ this is called terminal velocity.

Terminal Velocity Consider a skydiver:
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 skydiverâ€™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:
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.

Parachute opens â€“ diver slows down Velocity Speed increasesâ€¦ Terminal velocity reachedâ€¦ On the Moon Diver hits the ground New, lower terminal velocity reached Time

P2 3.1 Energy, Work and Power What do we mean by the word â€˜workâ€™ and â€˜powerâ€™ 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? â€˜Workâ€™ 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.

Work done = force x distance
LO: understand how energy can be transferred Calculating work 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
LO: understand the nature of gravitational potential energy Gravitational Potential Energy Gravitational Field strength GPE = mass x 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)

Power is the amount of work done/energy transferred in a given time
LO: understand how energy can be transferred Calculating power 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) = Â½ x mass (kg) x speed2 (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 = Â½ x m x vÂ² KE = kinetic energy (J) m = mass (kg)
LO: understand the nature of kinetic energy Kinetic energy KE = Â½ x m x vÂ² KE = kinetic energy (J) m = mass (kg) v = velocity (m/s)

LO: understand the link between force and extension of an object
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 The constant gradient here shows us that the force and extension are proportional

LO: understand the link between force and extension of an object
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) Beyond the proportional limit, the material shows plastic behaviour. The extension is now much harder to predict

Hookeâ€™s Law Hookeâ€™s law states that:

F = k x e Hookeâ€™s Law Hookeâ€™s law can be written as: F = Force (N)
LO: understand the link between force and extension of an object Hookeâ€™s Law Hookeâ€™s law can be written as: F = k x e 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.

P = m x v Momentum P = momentum (kgm/s) m = mass (kg)
LO: understand what is meant by momentum Momentum P = m x v P = momentum (kgm/s) m = mass (kg) v = velocity (m/s)

Conservation of momentum
LO: understand what is meant by momentum 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

Brakes and crumple zones
LO: explain how safety features on a car work 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.

P2 4 Current Electricity. What are charge, current and potential difference and how are they linked? What is Ohmâ€™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). Ohmâ€™s Law states that Potential difference is proportional to current as long as the temperature remains constant. Ohmâ€™s Law: V=IxR Series circuits consist of one â€˜loopâ€™ of components through which electrical current can pass. Parallel circuits consist of many branches or paths for the electrical current to take.

Calculating current Current = Charge/time I = Q/t
LO: Understand how to create electrical circuits Calculating current 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. Current = Charge/time I = Q/t I = Current (Amps, A) Q = Charge (Coulombs, c) t = Time (s)

Calculating potential difference
LO: Understand how to create electrical circuits Calculating potential difference Potential Difference (Voltage): The potential difference between two points is the work done per unit charge between two points Potential difference = work done/charge V = W/Q V = P.D. (Volts, V) W = Work done (Joules, J) Q = Charge (Coulombs, c)

Energy = potential difference x Charge
LO: Understand how to create electrical circuits Calculating energy Energy = potential difference x Charge E = V x Q E = Energy transferred (Joules, J) V = P.D. (Volts, V) Q = Charge (Coulombs, c)

LO: Understand the relationship-between current and voltage in a circuit
Ohmâ€™s Law Ohmâ€™s Law states that the current through a resistor is directly proportional to the potential difference (voltage) provided the temperature is constant

Potential difference = Current x Resistance
LO: Understand the relationship-between current and voltage in a circuit Ohmâ€™s Law Potential difference = Current x Resistance V = IR V = P.D. (V) I = Current (A) R = Resistance (Ohms, Î©)

Series circuits IN A SERIES CIRCUIT, EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED END TO END. THERE IS NO PLACE FOR THE CURRENT TO SPLIT IN THE CIRCUIT. The current through each component in a series circuit is the same 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. The potential difference across each component is the same in a parallel circuit The total current in the circuit is the sum of the currents through the individual components in the 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 â€˜tripâ€™ when this is too big.

LO: describe features of mains electricity
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.

Direct current is what comes out of a battery
Direct current is what comes out of a battery. It only flows in one direction and should remain at a constant value throughout the life of the battery. If you connected this sort of supply to an oscilloscope it would look like this. Voltage / V time

LO: describe features of mains electricity
AC vs DC However, the same isnâ€™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

Frequency (Hz) = 1 Ã· time taken for one cycle (s)
+320 Mains voltage â€“ 230V â€“ is an average pd, (root mean square pd) by dividing peak voltage by root2. One cycle (1/50th second) -320 Frequency (Hz) = 1 Ã· time taken for one cycle (s)

Key points Mains electricity uses a.c. Mains electricity is at 230V
LO: describe features of mains electricity Key points Mains electricity uses a.c. Mains electricity is at 230V 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.

Components of a plug and cable
LO: describe features of mains electricity Components of a plug and cable Live wire (brown) â€“ This carries the current to the appliance. Neutral wire (blue) â€“ This completes the circuit and is usually at 0V Earth wire (green/yellow) â€“ This â€˜earthsâ€™ the appliance in case of a fault Fuse â€“ 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 donâ€™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.) donâ€™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

What happens if the current is too large?
The Circuit breaker switch electromagnet What happens if the current is too large? Too much current causes the electromagnet to produce a magnetic field strong enough to open the switch. (The circuit break is said to â€˜tripâ€™). This switches off the current.

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 (â€˜tripsâ€™) which stops the flow of current. They work a lot faster than fuses and can be reset easily

Calculating electrical power
LO: describe features of mains electricity Calculating electrical power Power = Potential difference x Current P = V x I P = Power (w) V = P.D. (V) I = Current (A)

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.

Types of Radiation 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 itâ€™s large mass. It can be stopped by a few cm of air or by a piece of paper

LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay
Types of Radiation 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

LO: understand the nature of radioactive decay
Types of Radiation 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.

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Isotopes An isotope of an element has the same number of protons and neutrons as the original, but a different number of neutrons.

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission Radioactivity of a substance

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission Radioactivity of a substance 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!

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Half-life 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.

Where does this happen? 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 â€“ protostar â€“ main sequence â€“ red giant â€“ white dwarf â€“ black dwarf. Larger stars could form super red giants, these will then turn in to a supernova â€“ neutron star/black hole.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Nebula All stars start their lives as part of a nebula. Nebulae are large clouds of dust and gas (mainly hydrogen).

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Protostar 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 â€˜babyâ€™ star.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Main sequence 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.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Red Giant 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 â€˜Red Giantâ€™.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
White dwarf 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 â€“ the â€˜white dwarfâ€™.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Black dwarf After a long enough time, the white dwarf will cool down enough so that it stops glowing white hot. It is now called a â€˜black dwarfâ€™.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Red Super Giant 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.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Supernova 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 canâ€™t collapse any more. This causes a MASSIVE shockwave!

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Supernova 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.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Neutron star After a supernova, only the starâ€™s core is left behind. During the collapsing process, this core is turned into just neutrons. The resulting â€˜neutron starâ€™ is very very dense. One spoonful of a neutron star would weigh more than the Earth!

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Black hole 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.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Black hole This â€˜singularityâ€™ has an immense gravitational force. Itâ€™s attraction is so strong that not even light can escape from it. Hence the name â€˜black holeâ€™.
