What is Pressure, Pressure equation, low pressure, high pressure, gas pressure, particles, balanced pressure, collapsing bottle, atmospheric pressure, pressure and altitude, pressure in water, equation for pressure in water, and upthrust caused by pressure difference. A worksheet (cloze activity) is included about the Titanic disaster and forces on the ship.
This resource is designed for lower ability students. It would work well with some background video about the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Key points are that gravity is a force attracting all masses together. Gravity pulls us towards the centre of the Earth and keeps the Earth in orbit around the sun.
This resource was designed for lower ability students. It deals with Galileo's invention of the telescope and subsequent discovery of Jupiter's four largest moons. The worksheet is designed to help students understand the link between orbital period and strength of gravity.
