Applied Science AQA/Kinematics
Setting Applied contextEdit
A brief paragraph about where this science is used
|Syllabus Content||What you need to do|
|• the motion of objects||Describe motion in terms of displacement, speed, velocity and acceleration.
Know the difference between:
- distance and displacement
- speed and velocity
|• the formulas :
(average) v = s/t
v = u + at
v2 = u2 + 2as
s = ut + ½ at2
|Use these suvat equations to calculate any of the five quantities.
Recognise 'hidden' information, such as a=9.81 ms−2 when falling, or that accelerating from rest gives u = 0 ms−1.
|• representing motion through the use of graphs of displacement against time and velocity against time||Use these graphs to describe motion.
Calculate the gradient of a displacement-time graph as speed.
Calculate the gradient of a velocity-time graph as acceleration.
Calculate the area under a velocity-time graph as distance traveled.
(Gradients may require the calculation of the tangent to a curve at a point.)
Explanation of key ideas (must be original text, not C&P) – level checked by AQAEdit
Careers and OrganisationsEdit
Typical jobs / companies worth looking into
– relating to criteria skills
to exemplify level required – level checked by AQA
– can we use old AQA qs… e.g. from more than 5 years ago? With Examiner comments
to other sections within this book
to good external websites (including AQA website, Wikipedia, relevant applications / companies) - also considering links in spec
