**1.1 Units: kg, m, m/s, m/s**2

**, N, s, N/kg**

**a) Movement and position**

**1.2 understand and use distance-time graphs**

**Distance -time graphs**

The gradient of a distance-time graph=speed

s=d/t

Distance isn't increasing-gradient=0, hence speed=0---->object is stationary (not moving)

The steeper the graph, the greater the speed as the gradient is steeper.

If the graph is

*curved*, then the speed must be changing. If it is curving upwards (blue line), the speed is increasing, if it is curving downwards, the speed is decreasing. So the gradient of the graph also tells us how the speed is changing.

*Instantaneous speed=*How fast an object is moving at a particular instant.

The gradient of the tangent at a point on the distance-time graph gives us the instantaneous speed.

**1.3 recall and use the relationship between average speed, distance moved and time:**

average speed=distance moved/time taken

s=d/t

**1.4 recall and use the relationship between acceleration, velocity and time:**

acceleration=change in velocity/time taken

a=(v-u)/t

where v=final velocity

u=initial velocity

t=time

**1.5 interpret velocity-time graphs**

**1.6 determine acceleration from the gradient of a velocity-time graph**

the gradient at a point on the velocity-time graph gives you the acceleration

**1.7 determine the distance travelled from the area between a velocity-time graph and the time axis**

basically, the area under a velocity time graph = distance travelled

Terrible notes!

ReplyDeletenooooooooo they are awesome and amazing

Delete- an ex-student from BSS

Agree, this is helpless!!

ReplyDeleteIt is funny because the same person wrote both of those comments as they are only written 13 mins apart :P

ReplyDeleteI don't know why that person thought that though as I find the notes very accurate and useful.

Agree, this is very accurate and useful.

ReplyDeleteI am a very important physics person so I know what I am talking about and I am totally not the guy who wrote the amazing comment before me.

Thank you so much, this really helped me with revising for my Science test tomorrow. :)

ReplyDeleteThanks mitchelle this is so helpful =]

ReplyDeletevery helpful. saved alot of time for revising

ReplyDeletethis helped me alot, thankyou! ;D

ReplyDeletethis is very helpful

ReplyDeleteI want your number michelle

and I think that you are a very nice person

love u <3

oh you are so helpful love ya kisses :* ♥

ReplyDeletevery helpful, but sometimes you could add a bit more detail...but overall, its very good! :)
