the result of a magnet or a current-carrying conductor
MAGNETIC FIELD with the field lines pointing towards or away
from the centre of a circle.
PRODUCTION of an electric current by a changing magnetic
field (conductor cuts across amagnetic flux OR a change of
magnetic flux linkage with a coil)
VALUE of a steady current/ voltage, which would produce the
same heating effect in a given resistor.
The magnitude of the induced electromotive force (e.m.f.) is
directly proportional to therate of change of magnetic flux
linkage with the solenoid or the rate at which a conductor cuts
through the magnetic flux.
Lenzs law states that an induced electric current always flows
in such a direction so as to oppose the change (or motion)
producing it.

When the bus was moving, the passenger


were also moving at the same speed as the
bus.
When the bus stopped, the passengers
continued moving. Hence, they were thrown
foward.
The people in the car tried to remain in their
state of rest when the car started moving.
Hence, they were thrown back.
In both situations, the passengers were
resisting a change in their state of motion and
also known as Inertia.
The concept of inertia also known as
Newtons First Law of Motion, which states
that an object will remain at rest or continue
with a constant speed in a straight line unless

Explain the differences between accuracy


and consistency of a measuring instrument by
using suitable examples.
Accuracy is the ability of the instrument to
give readings close to the actual value.
The value determined is accurate if it is near
to the actual value
The consistency of a measuring instrument is
the ability of instrument to record consistent
readings for each measurement with little
deviation among readings.
The measurement is consistent if the values
determined are close to each other.

A supertanker at a state of motions and have a


maximum velocity.
A supertanker has a larger mass.
A larger mass have a lot/larger inertia.
When the engine stop, the supertanker will
continue it state of motions.
So it take a longer distance/time to stop due to
its has a larger inertia.

To accelerate 2 objects with the same


acceleration, the heavier object needs a bigger
force. Explain the statement.
Higher mass, higher inertia
To accelerate an object, need to overcome the
inertia first.
Therefore, more force is needed for heavier
object.
Can you explain why the passenger
thrown forward when the bus suddenly stop and
the head of the passenger were thrown back
when the car started moving.

Can you explain why a maximum speed of


supertanker might need to stop its engine over a
distance of about 3 km before it can come to
stop.

Explain why a softball player moves his


hand backwards while catching a fast moving
ball. Other situation: bend our knee after jump?
A soft ball has a high velocity.
A soft ball has a high momentum.
The soft ball player move his hand backward
to increase time impact.

The higher the time impact will reduce


impulsive force.
So we will not feel hurt.

Diagram (a) shows two identical spherical


plasticine balls before being released from the
same height. Diagram (b) shows the state of
the

plasticine balls when they hit the wood and the


sponge. It was observed that the plasticine
stopped more quickly when it hit the wood.

Explain the changes in energy that occur from


the moment the plasticine ball is released until
reaches the position in Diagram (b)

10.

Before released, the plasticine has


Gravitational Potential energy .
When falling , Gravitational Potential
energy changes to Kinetic energy
When the plasticine hits the surface of
wood , the Kinetic energy changes to
Heat energy / / Sound energy
The energy / work done is use to changes
the shape of sponge

Explain why the boat moves away from


the jetty as a boy jumps out of the boat onto
the river bank.

Explain how the forces between the


molecules caused the elasticity when the spring is
compressed and stretched.

Boy slide down when component of


weight parallel to the slope is higher than
frictional force
Resultant force acting to produced
acceleration
Boy remain stationary when component of
weight parallel to the slope is equal to
frictional force
Resultant force is equal to zero make the
boy in force equilibrium

When the boy jumps onto the river bank,


his momentum is forward.
Using the Principle of conservation of
momentum
the total momentum before and after
jumping is equal
The boat moves backward to balance the
forward momentum

ketumpatan gabus = jisim perisipadu

16.

The inertia of lorry and load is very big


when it is moving
The separate compartments make the load
divided into smaller mass, thus reducing
the inertia of each unit.
The momentum of lorry and load is very
big when it is moving and produce a
bigger impulsive force.
The steel structure will prevent the loads
from smashing into the drivers
compartment during emergency braking.

Why we feel easier to pull the wheel


barrow compared to push the wheel barrow?

20.
The object on the wheel barrow has a
weight
When we push the wheel barrow there is a
force acting on the ground in the same
direction as the weight.
So the total force acting on the ground is
the weight and the force produced when
we push the wheel barrow.
When we pull the wheel barrow the force
produced is in opposite direction with the
weight.
So the total force acting on the floor is a
weight less the force produced when we
pull the wheel barrow

Explain why the copper block sink in water but


the bowl shape copper sheet floats on water
two forces act on the copper block and
bowl are uptrust and weight
Uptrust small because small volume // vise
versa
The average density of cooper sheet is
smaller than density of water. Cooper
sheet will float.
Block sink because weight > uptrust
Sheet float because weight = uptrust

Ice cube melt will absorb the heat


The heat is known as latent heat of fusion
When our finger wet it has a small amount
of heat and it will absorb by the ice cube.
The heat release from water cause it to be
frozen.
So the ice cube and finger will stick
together due to the frozen of water
Further more finger have a rough surface

Your body sweats when you are feeling
hot.How does sweating helps to cool down
your body?
When we do the activity using the
movement of our body a sweat will
poduce.
Acctually water evaporates from the skin
when we sweat.
In the process of evaporation the change of
phase of matter from liquid to steam occur.
The heat is needed to change this phase is
call the latent heat of vapourisation.
So we feel cool when evaporation occur
due to the release of heat in our body.
Factor influence the process: air velocity,
temperature and humidity.
