#### Forces and Motion | Whole unit GCSE physics

(0)
This bundle consists of 25 sections covering the entirety of the unit Forces and Motion in KS4 GCSE physics. Each section consists of a PDF document designed for pupils to use as a handout to be integrated into the lesson. There is a corresponding document for teachers - it consists of my own notes and solutions to questions and tasks. A typical layout of each section includes: setting learning objectives learning the theory examples small tasks exam-style questions This bundle is also great for revision and recapping key ideas for pupils in year 11 before their exams. Below are the individual sections that I’ve divided the unit of Forces and Motion into. I hope that this resource is helpful and saves you plenty of time!

Explain how positive and negative electrostatic charges are produced on materials by the loss and gain of electrons. Know that there are forces of attraction between unlike charges and forces of repulsion between like charges. Explain electrostatic phenomena in terms of the movement of electrons. Explain the potential dangers of electrostatic charges, e.g. when fuelling aircraft and tankers. I’ve also linked to some videos that I made which you might find interesting.
