Waves A3 Revision Sheets + Answers (AQA GCSE Physics )

(0)
Designed for the Physics AQA GCSE these A3 revision sheets cover all of the content that students are required to know for the topic ‘Waves’. This resource is designed so that students can work independently to gather the content needed for this topic. There are four sheets in total. The first two are for students sitting Combined Science (Trilogy) GCSE and the last two are additional sheets for Triple Physics students Formatted to be printed on A3 but can easily be printed on A4.

Force and Acceleration - Newton's Second Law

(0)
Designed for the AQA 9-1 GCSE. This lesson covers the following areas. Define Newton’s Second Law and the formula F=ma. Analyse data on vehicles to determine the acceleration when given the driving force and mass of the vehicle. Explain why two identical cars that have different loads will have different accelerations. Explain why heavier vehicles have greater stopping distances than light vehicles, assuming the same braking force. Students will practice recalling and rearrange the formula F=ma with units, solving problems with the formula F=ma and prior knowledge of forces and applying Newton’s Second Law to the Top Gear video.

Simple table that the students will have to complete using the missing units or symbol. The sheet then asks the students to break down some of the SI units into simpler units using formula for that quantity. I believe this is a fundamental skill that students should have if they are taking A Level Physics and the table can easily be used at GCSE. It follows the dimensional analysis principle very closely.
