This is a good introductory worksheet to get students used to drawing linear graphs and determining the Physical quantity from a graph. This worksheet includes 3 questions and model graphs and answers.
The Monkey falls from the tree at the same time as a banana pellet is launched. The monkey catches the pellet in his mouth. This demo (best done in real life) shows that both the projectile (ball) and the monkey are both being acted upon by the same accelerating force due to gravity.
This video runs through the practical aspect of the Pole Vaulter A.S. 2.1 Physics internal assessment. This practical can be done with a variety of pasta and by using the theoretical equation, the radius of the pasta can be determined. Model height (h) vs distance (d):
A neat little worksheet, which gets students used to rearranging and substituting numbers into the 5 given kinematic equations. Answers included. Great to use at the start of kinematics / linear motion after proving how the formulas are generated.
This is the student instructions including a diagram, physics theory and questions. It is expected students will complete the following practice Physics internal assessment A.S. 2.1 at home using spaghetti from home or given by their classroom teacher. Access to the full model report can also be found on this site.
Find attached an 8 page model report covering all of the Excellence points and a calculation of the radius of spaghetti. Also attached is an Microsoft Excel file of data for 6 brands of Spaghetti which was tested to ensure all brands can be used – yes all brands can be used Home brand giving the […]
5 non-linear data sets with corresponding Physics questions and contexts, requiring a non-straight line graph and a straight line graph to be drawn, and a Physical quantity to be determined from using the gradient. Also attached is pre-drawn axis for Q3 and Q5. The file includes FULL ANSWERS!
Here are the full answers to the NCEA 2013 Level 2 Physics exam for all 3 questions. Below is the 2013 NCEA Mechanics Exam, Marking schedule, Student example of Excellence, and formula sheet. Below is also the answers to part 2 and part 3 of the Exam:
