M3 Notes and Examples

You will receive a student booklet with gaps for the solutions to the examples to be filled in and a teacher’s booklet with detailed worked solutions.

Mechanics: Lift Problems and Pulley Problems (MWB activity)

A mini-whiteboard activity where students are asked to draw several force diagrams for a single situation involving connected particles (in this case, a man in a lift). It is something my students have struggled with in the past, and I couldn’t find much else online, so I created this so that students can become more confident with this topic. Contains a similar MWB quiz for pulleys. Both resources worked really well as revision/consolidation tools.

AQA Mechanics 2 Past paper questions organised by topic

I have put this together for my students. I wanted regular practice and exposure to exam questions and also wanted to have something for my more able students to get their teeth into, hence the killer question(s) at the back of each homework sheet. We refer to the revision poster during our teaching, paying particular attention to the formulae and checklist associated with each topic. I give out the individual worksheets as homework to gauge their understanding and will give them the full booklet to aid their revision in the Summer term. Let me know how you intend to use it and how well received it has been please, I'm always keen to hear from others. Have you added to/amended my checklist? Please inform me through twitter, @billyads_47

All About Energy: 7-page booklet of conceptual explanations and examples for A-level Mechanics 2

Designed specifically for the Mechanics 2 syllabus, but equally valid and useful for studying energy in A-level Physics, the booklet explains the key concepts that are so crucial and so often misunderstood: Force, Energy, Power Conservation of energy Energy transfer examples Common types of energy How much energy? (compare fuels, food and drink, lightning, AA batteries, etc...) Work done by a constant force (not necessarily acting in the direction of motion) Gravitational Potential Energy Kinetic Energy Work done by variable forces (using integration) Elastic Potential Energy
