Centripetal acceleration formula

A simple yet rigorous mathematical derivation of the centripetal acceleration formula, a=(v^2)/r, including that the direction is towards the centre of the circle. Use as a handout for A-level students who want to push themselves a little beyond the specification without getting out of their depth.

Forces in circular motion

Forces in circular motion introduction with worked examples

Uniform circular motion

This is the 2nd lesson in uniform circular motion after introducing angular speed. It explains how several formulae are derived and examples of how they are used.

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

AQA Mechanics 2 revision techniques

Have written this to assist my year 13s when answering past papers. I am trying to instil the correct techniques used for each type of question in order to assist students gaining method marks on the questions where they have 'no idea' what the examiner is asking. This really is my first draft, written to share and improve. My students haven't seen it yet. I have sent it to be colour copied onto A3 and we will discuss and edit it on Thursday. Please let me know your thoughts and how you have improved this to benefit your students. Best to contact me through Twitter, @billyads_47.

OCR Mechanics 2 (M2) Revision (Big Exam Style Questions PowerPoint)

All the past paper questions from the Delphis practice papers. There are 10 papers, each having 7 questions. Questions are sorted by both paper and topic. Topics covered include: Projectiles Circular Motion Work, Energy and Power Moments Centre of Mass Impulse and Restitution For more revision resources, visit www.ParkerMaths,com Please note: This PowerPoint contains too many links for me to check them all individually. If you find any mistakes, please email admin@parkermaths.com and I'll try to correct them.

Deriving real life circular motion examples. Structured, independent worksheet.

A structured resource that guides students through deriving the equations for circular motion in a range of examples as required in the 2450 AQA A2 Physics syllabus. E.g. a car on a banked track, a long swing, the big dipper, a car on a hill. I split the class into groups of 3/4 and students worked through independently, occasionally requiring some teacher direction.
