GCSE C21 P4 Explaining Motion revision

Instantaneous Speed = Distance / Time (small distance and short time)
Average Speed = Distance / Time (journey distance and journey time)
Speed from a distance time graph… find the gradient of the graph = vertical / horizontal
In a distance time graph horizontal means the object is stopped
In a distance time graph the steeper the slope... the faster the object is going
In a distance time graph the downhill section means the object is moving backwards / towards you
Velocity is speed and direction
In a velocity time graph gradient represents.... acceleration
In a velocity time graph horizontal means constant speed
In a velocity time graph the steeper the slope... the greater the acceleration
In a velocity time graph uphill sections indicate... Acceleration or speeding up (positive acceleration)
In a velocity time graph downhill sections indicate.. deceleration or slowing down (negative acceleration)
Newton’s third law: if you push against a wall the wall... pushes back on you
Resultant force is... the overall force acting on an object.
Momentum = mass x velocity
Change in momentum = FORCE x TIME (resultant FORCE x TIME for which the force acts)
Change in energy is the same as Work done
Work Done = Force x Distance
Kinetic Energy 1/2 mass x velocity squared
The formula for change in gravitational potential energy is Weight x change in height
Falling objects convert gravitational potential energy into Kinetic energy
Units for kinetic energy J or joules
Units for potential energy J or joules
Units for mass kg or kilograms
Units for speed (standard scientific units) m/s or metres per second
Units for momentum kg m/s or kilogram metres per second
Units for work done J or joules
Units for weight N or newtons (weight is a force)
Units for force N or newtons

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.
