Forces can cause changes to the shape or motion of an object. Objects can move in a

straight line at a constant speed. They can also change their speed and / or direction

(accelerate or decelerate). Graphs can help us to describe the movement of an object.

These may be distancetime graphs or velocitytime graphs.

You should be able to:

interpret data from tables and graphs relating to speed, velocity and acceleration

evaluate the effects of alcohol and drugs on stopping distances

evaluate how the shape and power of a vehicle can be altered to increase the vehicles top

speed

draw and interpret velocitytime graphs for objects that reach terminal velocity, including a

consideration of the forces acting on the object

a) Whenever two objects interact, the forces they exert on each other are equal and

opposite.

b) A number of forces acting at a point may be replaced by a single force that has the same

effect on the motion as the original forces all acting together. This single force is called the

resultant force.

c) A resultant force acting on an object may cause a change in its state of rest or motion.

zero, the object will remain stationary

not zero, the object will accelerate in the direction of the resultant force.

e) If the resultant force acting on a moving object is:

zero, the object will continue to move at the same speed and in the same direction

not zero, the object will accelerate in the direction of the resultant force.

5|

a) The acceleration of an object is determined by the resultant force acting on the object and

the mass of the object.

or F = m a

d) The velocity of an object is its speed in a given direction.

e) The acceleration of an object is given by the equation:

Velocity-time graphs

The slope (gradient) of a velocity-time graph tells us the acceleration of a moving object.

The steeper the slope of the graph the greater its acceleration.

Step2 Work out the change in speed between the two points

change in speed = final speed - initial speed

= 30 -10 = 20 m/s

Step 3 Work out the time interval between the two points

time taken = final time - initial time

= 10 - 2 = 8 s

Step 4 Work out the acceleration of the car

Acceleration = change in speed / time taken = 20 / 8 = 2.5 m/s2 answer

Time (s)

A train sets off from a station and accelerates to a steady speed. It maintains this

speed for a while, until it passes an amber signal. The driver then brakes so that it

slows down gradually; the next signal is green, so the driver speeds up again.

Fill in the missing words:

a) When a vehicle travels at a steady speed the resistive forces balance the driving force.

b) The greater the speed of a vehicle the greater the braking force needed to stop it in a

certain distance.

c) The stopping distance of a vehicle is the sum of the distance the vehicle travels during the

drivers reaction time (thinking distance) and the distance it travels under the braking force

(braking distance).

Stopping distance = Thinking distance + Braking distance

tiredness

drugs and

alcohol.

e) When the brakes of a vehicle are applied, work done by the friction force between the

brakes and the wheel reduces the kinetic energy of the vehicle and the temperature of the

brakes increases.

f) A vehicles braking distance can be affected by:

adverse road and weather conditions and

poor condition of the vehicle (eg worn tyres, worn brakes)

10 |

a) The faster an object moves through a fluid the greater the frictional force that acts on it.

b) An object falling through a fluid will initially accelerate due to the force of gravity.

Eventually the resultant force will be zero and the object will move at its terminal velocity

(steady speed).

c) Draw and interpret velocity-time graphs for objects that reach terminal velocity, including a

consideration of the forces acting on the object.

d) Calculate the weight of an object using the force exerted on it by a gravitational force:

W=mg

Example

A person has a mass of 80kg. What is his weight?

Using the formula and knowing that on earth g = 9.8 m/s2:

Weight = 80 x 9.8

= 784 N

Now try this

1. A person has a mass of 70 kg. What is his weight?

3. On the moon g = 1.6 N/kg. Work out the masses of each of these objects on the moon:

(a) 10 kg

(b) 84 kg

(c) 230 kg

(d) 65 kg

14 |

a) A force acting on an object may cause a change in shape of the object.

b) A force applied to an elastic object such as a spring will result in the object stretching and

storing elastic potential energy.

c) For an object that is able to recover its original shape, elastic potential energy is stored in

the object when work is done on the object to change its shape.

d) The extension of an elastic object is directly proportional to the force applied, provided

that the limit of proportionality is not exceeded:

F=ke

15 |

When an object speeds up or slows down, its kinetic energy increases or decreases. The

forces which cause the change in speed do so by doing work. The momentum of an object is

the product of the objects mass and velocity.

You should be able to:

evaluate the benefits of different types of braking system, such as regenerative braking.

evaluate the benefits of air bags, crumple zones, seat belts and side impact bars in cars.

One way to estimate your own power is to time yourself running up a flight of stairs.

You will need to know your mass in kg and the vertical height of the stairs.

To calculate the power, we need to work out the energy gained per second.

If the mass of a person is 70 kg and the height of the stairs is 10 m, then gravitational

potential energy gained

= mgh

= 70 kg 10 10 m

= 7000 Nm (= 7000 J)

This is the amount of energy transferred from chemical energy in the person muscles into

gravitational energy.

Power

= energy transferred/ time taken

= 7000 J / 15 s

= 466.67 J/s (or watts)

The persons power output during this task is 467 W.

Power

Two motors can lift a load of 1 kg from the floor to the bench. One motor can lift it quicker

than the other.

Which has done the most work?

Which motor has the most power?

Power = (work done) time taken

When work is done energy is transferred from one form to another. So we can write

Power = (energy transformed) (time taken)

Power is measured in Watts (W). 1 W is equivalent to 1 joule per second (J/s)

Work

Work is done only when a force moves an object

WORK

Work done = force x distance

The joule (J) is the unit of energy. It is equal to a force of 1 newton pulling (or pushing)

through a distance of 1 m.

Question

A woman lifts a parcel weighing 7 N onto a shelf 2 m high. How much work has she done?

Answer

1. Write down equation: Work done = force x distance

2. Write down what you know:

force = 7N

distance = 2m

3. Rearrange equation if necessary

4. Plug in numbers and do calculation: 7 N x 2 m = 14 Nm

5. Check units: 14 Nm = 14 J

Questions

1. A man weighs 800N climbs 6 stairs vertically, walking up to his flat. If each step is 15 cm

high how much work does he do?

a) How much kinetic energy is given to the ball?

a) how much work was done on the object?

c) If a force of 400 N had acted over the same distance what would the object have gained in

kinetic energy?

4. How much work is done when a concrete block weighing 20 000 N is lifted 25 m upwards

by a crane?

5. A mountaineer weighs 600 N. He carries a pack weighing 150 N. How much work does

he do in climbing a mountain 3000 m high?

19 |

f) Gravitational potential energy is the energy that an object has by virtue of its position in

a gravitational field

Ep = m g h

Example

A 80 kg man is lifted by a crane 2 m. Take g = 10 N/kg, found out the gain in potential

energy

Using

Ep = m g h

Then Ep = 80 10 2 = 1600 Nm = 1600 J

g) The kinetic energy of an object depends on its mass and its speed.

Ek = m v2

Example

Find the kinetic energy of a 60 kg man running at 10 m/s.

Using

Ek = m v2

m = 60 kg, v = 10 m/s

Then Ek = 80 102 = 40 100 = 4000 J

Now try these

1. Calculate the kinetic energy of each of the following:

(a) a stone of mass 0.1 kg moving at 20 m/s

(a) A book of mass 1 kg is lifted up 0.5 m form the floor to a table.

(c) A stone of mass 0.2 kg falls from the top of a 60 m high cliff.

P2.2.2 Momentum

a) Momentum is a property of moving objects.

pmv

b) In a closed system the total momentum before an event is equal to the total momentum

after the event. This is called conservation of momentum.

Example

(a) A car has a mass of 1100 kg and travels at 30 m/s. Find the momentum of the car.

Using p = mv

= 1100 x 30 = 33 000 kg m/s

(b) The same car hits another car of mass 1000 kg which is stationary. Find the total momentum

before and after the collision.

If the car is stationary then it will have a velocity = 0. If v= 0 then the momentum will also be zero.

The momentum before the collision will be: 33 000 + 0 = 33 000 kg m/s

The momentum after the collision will also be 33 000 kg m/s

Find the momentum of a 1100 kg car travelling at:

(a) 50 m/s

(b) 33 m/s

(c) 50 km/h (dont forget to convert the velocity to m/s)

Example

Two trucks are moving in the same direction along the track of an adventure park ride. One

has a velocity of 8 m/s and a mass of 500 kg and the other with twice the mass has a

velocity of 6 m/s. They collide and link together. What is their new velocity?

Solution

The initial momentum of the first truck

= m1 v1 = 500 8 = 4000

= m2 v2 = 1000 6 = 6000

After the collision the two trucks stick together, so the combined mass will be

m1 + m2 = 500 + 1000 = 1500

The momentum will then be

(m1 + m2) vnew = 10 000

21 |

Giving

vnew =

10000

= 6.67 m/s

1500

1.

A vehicle travelling at 40 m/s has a mass of 1250 kg. Calculate its momentum.

2.

A car with a momentum of 60000 kg m/s has a mass of 2500 kg. Find its velocity.

3.

Two cars are moving in the same direction. One has a velocity of 5 m/s and a mass

of 1000 kg and the other with a mass of 15000 kg has a velocity of 10 m/s. They

collide and link together.

(a) what is the momentum of the two cars before the collision?

(b) What is the momentum of the two cars after the collision?

(c) What is their new velocity?

4.

A car of mass 1250 kg is waiting at a traffic light with its hand brake off. A car of

mass 1500 kg travelling at 25 m/s collides with the stationary car. The two cars link

together and move forward.

(a)What is their velocity after the accident?

(b) What is the total kinetic energy before the collision?

(c) Is this an elastic or inelastic collision?

Car safety

Crumple Zone

The car is designed so that the structure of the car will give way during a collision. The metal

of the car will dent, bend and fold during a collision which increases the amount of time it

takes the car to stop.

The parts of the car that do this (the front and the back) are called crumple zones.

Seatbelts

Car seatbelts protect people in two ways during a crash. The seatbelt prevents the person

being thrown about in the car, possibly through the windscreen or hitting themselves on the

steering wheel or other objects.

The seatbelt also stretches a little, while restraining the person during a crash. The

stretching increases the amount of time it takes the person to stop.

Airbags

Airbags are bags which inflate very quickly during a crash. They provide a softer surface

(like a pillow) to prevent the people hitting themselves on hard objects.

They are designed to be used with a seatbelt. An airbag will give way a little when a person

hits it and this gives an extra increase to the amount of time it takes the person to stop.

Bubble wrap packaging has the same effect and is used to protect objects that are being

transported.

23 |

Extended question

In 1983 it became a legal requirement to wear a seatbelt whilst travelling in a car in

the UK. Since then new car designs have developed to increase the safety of the

driver and passengers. Outline these safety designs. You should include:

An explanation of how they protect the people in the car

The Physics principles in action when the vehicle stops suddenly or crashes

Q10.

When a car driver has to react and apply the brakes quickly, the car travels some distance

before stopping. Part of this distance is called the thinking distance. This is how far the car

travels while the driver reacts to a dangerous situation.

The table below shows the thinking distance (m) for various speeds (km/h).

Units

All energy is measured in joules (J)

1 joule is the energy required to lift 1 kg 1m.

Forces are measured in newtons (N)

Power is measured in watts (W)

1 watt is the same as 1 joule per second (J/s or J s-1)
