Full Lesson PowerPoint to teach the GCSE 9-1 specification Physics lessons on SP15a/CP13a Bending and Stretching and SP15b/CP13b Extension and Energy Transfers. It covers the relationship between force and extension for a spring and a rubber band (also comparing them), the difference between elastic and inelastic distortion, that more than one force is needed to distort an object, the equation that links force, extension and the spring constant, the equation relating the energy transferred to the extension of a spring and that work has to be done to stretch a spring.
The resource is appropriate for Triple and Combined Science classes, Foundation and Higher tiers.
Note: I have combined these 2 lessons in an attempt to save some time but it may take 2 lessons to cover – depends on your class and how much time you have available.
The FREE sample lesson “GCSE Physics Energy Stores and Transfers FULL LESSON (Edexcel 9-1 CP3a SP3a) Conservation of Energy” is also available to download from my TES shop.
