21/04/2015 Distance, Speed and Time Speed = distance (in metres) time (in seconds) D TS 1)Dave walks 200 metres in 40 seconds. What is his speed? 2)Laura covers 2km in 1,000 seconds. What is her speed? 3)How long would it take to run 100 metres if you run at 10m/s? 4)Steve travels at 50m/s for 20s. How far does he go? 5)Susan drives her car at 85mph (about 40m/s). How long does it take her to drive 20km?
21/04/2015 Balanced and unbalanced forces Consider a camel standing on a road. What forces are acting on it? Weight Reaction These two forces would be equal – we say that they are BALANCED. The camel doesn’t move anywhere.
21/04/2015 Balanced and unbalanced forces What would happen if we took the road away? Weight Reaction
21/04/2015 Balanced and unbalanced forces What would happen if we took the road away? The camel’s weight is no longer balanced by anything, so the camel falls downwards… Weight
21/04/2015 What would happen if we took the road away? The camel’s weight is no longer balanced by anything, so the camel falls downwards… Balanced and unbalanced forces
21/04/2015 Balanced and unbalanced forces 1) This animal is either ________ or moving with _____ _____… 4) This animal is… 2) This animal is getting _________… 3) This animal is getting _______….
21/04/2015 Facts on Air Resistance Air Resistance is the force that acts ___________ anything that moves through the ______: It can be reduced by using a more “__________” (aerodynamic) shape: It gets _______ when you move faster: Streamlining also works when travelling through _______: Words – water, air, larger, against, streamlined
21/04/2015 Terminal Velocity Consider a skydiver: 1)At the start of his jump the air resistance is _______ so he _______ downwards. 2) As his speed increases his air resistance will _______ 3) Eventually the air resistance will be big enough to _______ the skydiver’s weight. At this point the forces are balanced so his speed becomes ________ - this is called TERMINAL VELOCITY Words – increase, small, constant, balance
21/04/2015 Terminal Velocity Consider a skydiver: 4) When he opens his parachute the air resistance suddenly ________, causing him to start _____ ____. 5) Because he is slowing down his air resistance will _______ again until it balances his _________. The skydiver has now reached a new, lower ________ _______. Words – slowing down, decrease, increases, terminal velocity, weight
21/04/2015 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
