Speed, velocity and acceleration Speed The rate at which an object moves or the measurement of the distance traveled by an object in a certain unit of time. It is a scalar quantity. Measured in metre per second (ms-1) or kilometer per hour (km h-1) Average speed can be calculated by dividing the distance traveled by the time taken.

Speed = distance traveled Time taken

Q3: Answer:

A boy pedals his bicycle for a distance of 200m in 20 seconds. What is the speed of the bicycle?

Velocity The rate of change of distance travelled by an object. The velocity of a moving object changes if either its speed or its directi0n changes. Two objects traveling with the same speed but in different directions have different velocities. Unit : ms-1

Velocity = Displacement(m) Time taken (s) 4


The diagram below shows a ticker tape obtained from a moving trolley. If the ticker timer vibrates 50times per second, what is the velocity of the trolley?


Acceleration The rate of change in velocity Unit : ms-2 When velocity decreases, its rate of change is called deceleration

Acceleration = change of velocity (ms-1) Time interval (s) = final velocity initial velocity

Q5: Answer:

What is the acceleration of a car which moves from its stationary state and reaches a velocity of 5ms-1 in 5 seconds?

Q6: Answer:

Inertia The resistance of an object to a change in its motion. Inertia depends on mass. An object with a large mass has more inertia, and it has a greater tendency to maintain its state of motion. Application of inertia in everyday life:(i) Motion of a car When a driver inside a vehicle applies the brakes suddenly, the driver and the passengers are thrown forwards. This is because they have the tendency to keep moving. When a car starts to move, or when it is hit from behind, the head of the passenger tends to remain at rest.


It is more difficult to push a heavy bag than a light bag from rest. This is because the heavy bag has a greater mass, hence, it has a greater tendency to remain at rest and it is more difficult to move. The concept of momentum Can be defined as mass in motion All objects have mass; so if an object is moving, then it has momentum - it has its mass in motion. Momentum depends upon the variables mass and velocity.


Momentum = mass X velocity

A jet plane of mass 60000kg travels at a velocity of 270ms -1. Calculate the momentum of the jet plane. Answer: Q8:


An object with mass of 40kg is moving at a velocity of 20ms-1. Calculate its momentum, in Ns. Answer:

When 2 objects are both traveling at the same speed, the one
with a larger mass is more difficult to stop. The principle of conservation of momentum states that when there are no external forces, the total momentum before the collision is equal to the total momentum after the collision.

Total momentum momentum before collision

total after

Pressure The amount of force exerted on a unit surface area.

Unit : Pascal (Pa) or Nm

Pressure, p = Force (F) Area -2

The amount of pressure depends on the strength of the force and the surface area which you apply the force. (a) The greater the strength, the higher the pressure (b) The greater the area, the smaller the pressure Q11: A box of mass 10kg is resting on a floor as shown below. Find the pressure exerted on the floor.





Q12: The wind pressure on the wall is 200Pa. If the wall has an area of 8m2, what is the force on it? Answer:

The greater the strength, the higher the pressure The greater the area, the smaller the pressure Concept of pressure in daily life. - A vehicle moving on a sandy surface area has broad tyres to reduce pressure on the sand. - The sharp knife has a smaller surface area in contact to increase the pressure against the food. Q13: A boy of mass 40kg stands on the floor. The total area of his shoes in contact with the floor is 200cm2. Calculate the pressure exerted on the floor if he stands on his feet. Answer:


Q14: Which of the following people would probably cause the greatest pressure on the floor? Why? (i) a fat man with big feet (ii) a thin boy with big feet (iii) a fat woman of mass equal to the fat man, with small feet Answer: _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ 5.6 Hydraulic system The principle of transmission of pressure in liquid states that pressure acting on a liquid will be transmitted equally in all directions with the same magnitude in a closed system.

The principle of transmission of pressure in liquid is applied in a hydraulic system.

A hydraulic system usually consists of two pistons placed inside

cylinders. A pipe containing a liquid connects the cylinders. A force F1 is applied to a small piston of area A1. The pressure is transmitted through a liquid to a larger piston of area A2. Fluid pressure in a small piston is equal to the fluid pressure in large piston.

Force (F1) F2 Area (A1)

= A2 12

Q15: The figure below shows a hydraulic system. If the area of piston P is 130cm2, calculate the area of piston Q in m2.

Force = 13N Piston P

Force = 100N Piston Q


Q16: The area of the pistons of a hydraulic system are 100cm2 and 25cm2 respectively. What is the weight of the load that can be lifted using this system if a force of 15N is applied on the small piston? Answer:


The application of the hydraulic system in everyday life. Two devices in our daily lives that use the hydraulic principle to operate are hydraulic jacks and hydraulic brake.


Q17: Why brake fluid is used in the hydraulic brake system in a car and not water? Give two reasons. (i) ________________________________________________________________ (ii) 5.7 ________________________________________________________________

The motion of vehicles in water.

Archimedes principle Archimedes principle state that when an object is immersed in a fluid (liquid or gas), the upthrust on the object is equal in size to the weight of the fluid displaced by the object. The upthrust force pushes our body upwards when we are in the water.

Q18: Calculate the upthrust of a piece of marble if the marbles weight in the air and in the water are 10N and 7N respectively. Answer:

Q19: based on the tips given below, determine the upthrust of stone in the water. Weight in the air : 8N Weight of water displaced : 5N Answer :


The application of Archimedes Principle

A ship , though very heavy , floats on the surface of the sea. This is because the buoyant force is equal to the weight of the ship. The buoyant force acting on the ship is large enough because the ship is hollow and the volume of water displaced by the ship is sufficiently large. A submarine has a large ballast tank, which is used to control its position and depth from the surface of the sea. A submarine submerges by letting water into the ballast tank so that its weight becomes greater than the buoyant force (and vice versa). It floats by reducing water in the ballast tank.-thus its weight is less than the buoyant force. Can Archimedes Principle be applied to vehicles that travel in the air??? The atmosphere is filled with air that exerts buoyant force on any object. A hot air balloon rises and floats due to the buoyant force (when the surrounding air is greater than its weight). It descends when the balloon weight is more than the buoyant force. It becomes stationary when the weight = buoyant force. The weight of the Hot-air balloon can be controlled by varying the quantity of hot air in the balloon.

Bernoullis Principle Bernoullis Principle states that where the velocity of a fluid is high, the pressure is low; and where the velocity is low, the pressure is high.
