Applied: Mechanics: Forces Introduction

Applied: Mechanics: Forces Introduction

A selection of wordless puzzles that introduce the idea of forces in gentle and accessible manner. Vectors and Force diagrams are linked to simple diagrammatic representations. Use this BEFORE teaching Forces to get the pupils used to the ideas of equilibrium and simple resolving.

Mechanics: Lift Problems

Mechanics: Lift Problems

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.

Toppling and sliding (Mechanics 2) - brief notes, examples and an exercise

Toppling and sliding (Mechanics 2) - brief notes, examples and an exercise

I created this short worksheet to revise the principles and basic methods for determining whether an object on an inclined plane will slide, topple, or neither. It may also be suitable as an introduction to the topic. So that the focus of the worksheet is on deciding what happens to the object, rather than spending time finding the location of the centre of mass, I have used only solid cylinders and cones for the questions. There is an introductory page which explains the required methods, together with a couple of examples. The exercise contains 20 questions, answers are included.

SUVAT equations

SUVAT equations

This powerpoint is for A-level Mathematics students studying Mechanics. It provides a solid introduction to the SUVAT equations with an exercise which allows students to appreciate how they are dervied. The ppt progresses to include worked examples with a final multi-stage problem which I recommend is worked through on a whiteboard.

KS3 Physics and Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Jet car. Stress Testing the Fin, Materials

KS3 Physics and Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Jet car. Stress Testing the Fin, Materials

A 2 min video clip explaining how we test the fin of a 1000mph car. BLOODHOUND’s giant tail fin is a key part of the car. It keeps it running straight and true. At 1,000mph it will see incredible loads, so the engineers need to monitor the aluminium structure using strain gauges… The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects. Over the life of this project we’ve been able to inspire over 2 million young people!

KS3 Chemistry, Science Skills; Bloodhound SSC Testing the Fuel Systems of a 1000mph Car.

3 minute video explaining how the fuel systems of Bloodhound SSC are regulated to control the rate of combustion, considering the ‘sloshing’ of the fuel in the tank as it accelerates up to 1000mph and back… The BLOODHOUND Team are at Newquay Airport to test the Fuel Systems for the EJ200 Jet Engine - they need to simulate the G forces the jet fuel will face at 1000mph by tilting the lower chassis to an angle of 60 degrees. Find out how they got on in this episode of Cisco BLOODHOUND TV. The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects. Over the life of this project we’ve been able to inspire over 2 million young people!

KS3 Electronics Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Electrical Systems of a 1000mph Car.

2 min 26 video showing how we rig the Electronic System of Bloodhound SSC. The electronic systems are are the lifeblood of the car. In a state-of-the-art racing car with three engines, three braking systems and over 500 sensors, the electrical systems are key. Systems Technician Milton explains the wiring loom in the cockpit. The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects.
