Here are the video answers to the 2015 Mechanics, projectile motion and linear motion test. Please note the purpose of this video is for you to learn from and correct your mistakes after having sat the exam. Click below to download the test paper and paper answers:
These notes cover all of the main types of errors which can be present in Physics experiments. They use the mnemonic SCRAPZ which stands for: S – Scale selection error C – Calibration error R – Repeating and averaging A – Approximate theory P – Parallax error Z – Zero error
This is a great worksheet for an introduction into graphing and determining the physical quantity from a linear graph. It includes brief notes on drawing graphs and includes a graph paper grid to draw the graph. Pages 1 and 2 can be shrunk to fit onto a single A4 sheet. Answers included.
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.
