# GCSE Acceleratio

### GCSE Acceleration

What does a horizontal line represent on a velocity-time graph? (describe the motion) Constant speed
What does a diagonal straight line up shows on a velocity-time graph? (describe the motion) The object is accelerating
What does a diagonal straight line down shows on a velocity-time graph? (describe the motion) The object is decelerating
How would you show an object at rest in a velocity-time graph? A horizontal line ON THE X-AXIS
CHALLENGE: What does a diagonal straight line down, UNDER THE X-AXIS shows on a velocity-time graph? (describe the motion) The object is MOVING BACKWARDS AND ACCelerating
CHALLENGE: What does a diagonal straight line up UNDER THE X-AXIS shows on a velocity-time graph? (describe the motion) The object is MOVING BACKWARDS AND DECelerating
How would you show that an object is accelerating on a vt graph? Straight line diagonally going up
How would you show that an object is decelerating on a vt graph? Straight line going diagonally down
How would you work out the acceleration using a vt graph? Divide the RISE on y-axis by the RISE in x-axis
How do you work out the distance using a vt graph? Work out the area under the graph (remember that the area of a triangle is height x width/2)
What is the acceleration of a car moving from rest position to 30m/s in 20secs? a=v/t=(30-0)/20=1.5 m/s^2; remember it is the RISE in velocity and the RISE in time
What distance would be covered if a car slowed down from 30m/s to 20m/s in 20s? area of the rectangle: 20 m/s x 20s= 400m; area of the triangle: 10m/s x 20s /2=100m; total=500m
What is the deceleration of a car moving from 30m/s to 20m/s in 20secs? a=v/t=(20-30)/20=MINUS 1 m/s^2; remember it is the RISE in velocity and the RISE in time; and DECELERATION is negative
What is the weight of a 70kg man? 700N
What is the weight of a 60kg woman on the Moon (gravity is 6 times less than on Earth) On Earth 600N; On the Moon, 60N

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
