Physics chapter 1

force and momentum

equation for momentum (vector - has direction) momentum(p) = mass(kg) x velocity(m.s-1) (in Ns)
Newtons 1st law remain at rest or uniform motion unless acted on by a force
Newtons 2nd law rate of change of momentum of an object is proportional to the resultant force on it
equation for change in momentum/impulse Force(N) x time(s) = mv(final) - mu(initial)
Areas under a force/time graph impulse (Ns)
elastic collision no loss of kinetic energy, or momentum
inelastic collision kinetic energy is transferred to energy in other forms, momentum conserved
Impluse (Ns) magnitude of a force multiplied by the time it takes to act
vector magnitude and direction
scalar only magnitude
gradient of displacement/time graph velocity (rate of change of displacement)
gradient of velocity/time graph acceleration (rate of change of velocity)
resultant force equation F(N) = mass(kg) x acceleration(m.s-2)
equation for work done Work = Force(N) x distance(m) (in Nm)
power rate of change of energy
equation for kinetic energy 1/2 x mass x velocity ^2 (in J)
equation for potential energy mass(kg) x g x change in h (in J)
Newtons 3rd Law when objects interact they exert equal and opposite forces on each other
Principle of Conservation of Momentum for a system, the total momentum remains constant, provided no external forces
How do you work out a Force at an angle to the direction of the force? when in a parallel component = Fcosθ when in perpendicular component = Fsinθ

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:

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.
