Try the speed and acceleration problems and fill in feedback at end of the quiz.
Physics The Science of a ball in flight The curved flight path of a spinning ball was first noticed by Sir Isaac Newton over 340 years ago and not more recently by David Beckham or Roberto Carlos. Newton observed that a tennis ball struck with an oblique racket would curve in flight. Newton explained this […]
The mechanics achievement standard AS90940 should be straightforward providing that you practise the basic equations. These equations are given to you at the start of the paper. You don’t have to remember them. You DO however need to rearrange them to solve for different variables. Here are some equations from this standard for you to […]
Here are the bullet points from the achievement standard that tell us what work we have to cover in distance and speed calculations. Aspects of mechanics will be limited to a selection from the following: • Distance, speed, interpretation of distance and speed time graphs, average acceleration and deceleration in the context of everyday experiences […]
