Forces between objects
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Forces between objects When two objects push or pull on each other, they exert equal and opposite forces on one another e.g. you are all pushing down on the floor, but the floor is also pushing up on you….if it didn’t you’d fall straight through the floor!

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

Calculating the resultant

Calculating the resultant
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Calculating the resultant A rocket producing a resultant force of 1000N hits a wall, causing it to come to a stop. What force does the wall exert on the rocket and the rocket exert on the wall. Explain the reasoning for your answer.

Calculating the resultant
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Calculating the resultant A car of weight 5000N produces a driving force of 2000N. It experiences friction force from the ground of 500N and air resistance of 300N. What are the horizontal and vertical resultant forces acting on the car?

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 1 What is the resultant force on this book?
LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Effects of forces 1 What is the resultant force on this book? What would happen if the force was not zero? The resultant force on a stationary (not moving) object is zero! If a resultant force is applied to an object, it will accelerate in the direction of the force

LO: calculate the forces acting on an object Effects of forces 2 An arrow is fired from a bow. What are the forces acting on the arrow as it flies towards its target? If an object is moving with constant speed, the resultant force on it is zero If a resultant force is applied to a moving object, it will accelerate in the direction of the force

Can you draw… Mr R cycles to the first traffic light, a distance of 500m away. It takes him 180 seconds to do this. He waits at the traffic lights for 120 seconds while the light is red When the light turns green, he cycles for 2000m without stopping. This takes him 5 minutes to do. After 2000m, Mr R has to stop at another traffic light. He waits for 180 seconds. Realising that he is about to be late, he sprints the last 500m in 120 seconds.

He turns round and drives back at 30m/s for two minutes. He is at home for 60s. Back on the road, Mr R drives at 30m/s for 300s Now on the motorway, Mr R is able to drive at 50m/s, which he does for 5mins Coming off the motorway, he stops at a traffic light for 120s Realising he is going to be late, he steadily increases his speed for the next 180 seconds from 0 to 50m/s.

What is happening? The graph below shows the velocity-time profile for a skydiver falling through the air. Discuss with the people on your pod what you think is happening and why. Think about the forces that are involved at each stage

LO: understand what is meant by terminal velocity
Moving in a fluid Let’s think about what happens when an object moves through a fluid by considering a skydiver When the skydiver FIRST jumps out of the aircraft, gravity causes him to accelerate. The acceleration is a constant so the line on v-t graph will have an unchanging steepness at the beginning

LO: understand what is meant by terminal velocity
Moving in a fluid As the speed of the skydiver increases, the air resistance on him increases. The increased air resistance causes his acceleration to decrease. However, his velocity is still increasing i.e. he’s speeding up slower than before, but he’s NOT slowing down.

LO: understand what is meant by terminal velocity
Moving in a fluid After a certain amount of time, the weight of the skydiver and the air resistance on the skydiver will be balanced. At this point, the skydiver will be moving at a constant velocity. This is the MAXIMUM velocity it is possible for him to move with and is known as the TERMINAL VELOCITY.

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

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.

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

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

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) – This carries the current to the appliance. Touching this can be deadly! Neutral wire (blue) – This completes the circuit and is usually at 0V Earth wire (green/yellow) – This ‘earths’ the appliance in case one of the wires touches the casing 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. Why is this?

LO: describe features of mains electricity
Earthing Plastic is an insulator, so there is no danger if the live wire touches the casing. Therefore, these appliances are supplied with two-core cables instead of three-core cables i.e. they don’t have earth wires because they don’t need them

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.

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 it’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

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 Nuclear Fission Nuclear fission is a process that uses atoms to generate VAST amounts of energy. HOW does It work?

A slow moving neutron is fired at the Uranium.
LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission Nuclear 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. Neutron Uranium nucleus

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Nuclear Fission The neutron attaches itself to the uranium and makes it even more unstable! Neutron Uranium nucleus Unstable nucleus

2 smaller nuclei (e.g. barium and krypton)
LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission Nuclear Fission The unstable Uranium splits into two smaller nuclei, releasing energy in the process Neutron Uranium nucleus Unstable nucleus 2 smaller nuclei (e.g. barium and krypton)

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Nuclear Fission Along with the energy, some more neutrons are also released! Neutron Uranium nucleus More neutrons Unstable nucleus 2 smaller nuclei (e.g. barium and krypton)

However, each fission reaction produces more and more neutrons.

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Chain reactions Each of the neutrons can cause more fission reactions, releasing more energy and more neutrons. The reaction can soon become an uncontrollable chain reaction, and when that happens… More neutrons

Nuclear Fission In fission, one nuclei is split into smaller nuclei to release energy! Neutron Uranium nucleus More neutrons Unstable nucleus 2 smaller nuclei (e.g. barium and krypton)

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Nuclear fusion In nuclear fusion, two nuclei are fused together to release energy. It is the opposite of nuclear fission.

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Where does this happen? Contrary to popular belief, our sun is not a massive fireball. It is actually a massive fusion reactor!

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
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

LO: understand the nature of fusion and fission
Why don’t we use fusion? Fusion seems like a great process! We only need hydrogen to do it (which we can get from water) and make helium, which is not a greenhouse gas…so why are we not using it?

Fusion future Although fusion isn’t economically viable right now, it will (probably!) be one of the main ways we generate energy in the future. Lots and lots of research is currently being done into it currently….

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 ‘baby’ 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 ‘Red Giant’.

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 – the ‘white dwarf’.

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 ‘black dwarf’.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Task The lifecycle that you have just covered is for stars about the same mass as our sun…Heavier stars, however, lead a slightly different life

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 can’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 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!

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 ‘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’.

How elements are formed
LO: understand the lifecycle of a star How elements are formed Stars are the perfect place for elements to be made! They are like massive ovens that have the energy needed to make new elements

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Stage 1 When a star is ‘young’ it has plenty of hydrogen. It fuses the hydrogen together to form helium. This releases massive amounts of energy in the form of light and heat. But what happens when the hydrogen runs out?

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Stage 2 When a star runs out of hydrogen, it has massive amounts of helium left. It has no choice but to start fusing helium, instead of hydrogen. Fusing helium makes heavier elements, like lithium and beryllium.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Stage 2 Fusing helium releases more energy than fusing hydrogen. This makes the star bigger and it enters the red giant phase. But what does it do when it runs out of helium?

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Stage 3 When the star has run out of helium, it will start fusing the heavier elements that it has created. This will make even heavier elements, such as Boron and Carbon.

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Stage 4 The star will keep on going through this process of running out of fuel and fusing heavy elements that it has created. This will make heavier and heavier elements. The heaviest element that stars can make is Iron.

What about elements heavier than Iron?

LO: understand the lifecycle of a star
Supernova The temperature in stars is not hot enough to make elements heavier than Iron. For these temperatures, a supernova is required!
