Physics 5 – Forces

  • Scaler and Vector quantities
  • Contact and non-contact forces
  • Gravity
  • Resultant forces
  • Work Done and energy transfer
  • Forces and elasticity
  • Moments, Levers and Gears (separate only)
  • Pressure in fluids
  • More pressure on fluids (separate only)
  • Atmospheric pressure
  • Describe motion along a line
  • Distance and displacement
  • Speed and Velocity
  • Distance-Time relationship
  • Acceleration
  • Forces, acceleration and Newton’s 3 laws of motion
  • Newton’s 1st law
  • Newton’s 2nd law
  • Newton’s 3rd law
  • Forces and braking
  • Stopping distance
  • Reaction time
  • Factors affecting braking distance
  • Momentum (higher only)
  • Conservation of momentum (higher only)
  • Changes in momentum (separate only)
  • practical – force and extension
  • practical – acceleration
