S3 Space

We aim to check out lots of information about Space and the Universe. As it is rather a large topic and contains all we know and lots that we don’t we wont be able to cover it all. This is the content statements that we hope to cover.

As part of your course we expect you to research one unmanned SPACE mission. You can choose any space agency, NASA, ESA, Roscosmos, etc

You need to consider

  • When was the mission?
  • What was the purpose of the mission?
  • How long did the mission last?
  • What did the mission conclude?
  • Did the mission exceed expectations?
  • What information can you share about the mission?
Some of the Space Agencies from across the world. Some are state sponsored, some private companies.

S2 Unit 2 Test HEAT

Here are a few items that you can try for revision.

The S3 Physics Block covers Beyond the Visible after covering light. Attached is the outcomes that you should cover in your course.

The Electromagnetic Spectrum

The electromagnetic (em) spectrum is a collection of transverse waves that all travel at the same speed in air, the speed of light, 300 000 000 m/s. (equivalent to 7.5 times round the Earth every second)

One of the waves is VISIBLE LIGHT

A=amplitude λ = wavelength

Others are RADIO & TV, MICROWAVE.

The others are INFRA-RED, ULTRA VIOLET, X-RAYS, GAMMA WAVES.

The only difference between each of these waves is their wavelength or frequency. They all fit the formula

Speed= frequency × wavelength

v=f λ

The order is important and to remember it use the following rhyme!

Randy                  Radio & TV

Monkeys              Microwaves

Invade                 Infrared

Venezuela           Visible

Using                   Ultraviolet

Xylophone           X-rays

Gunships             Gamma

Period, T, is the time for one wave to pass a point and is measured in seconds.

Frequency, f is the number of waves being produced or passing a point per second. Frequency is measured in Hertz (Hz)

S2 Transport -from 2018

As we now only have 10 periods we will need to curtail some of the fun stuff we used to do in this unit. It is still packed with cars, speed, calculations and a fun way to learn. You can always check out what you’re missing in the road safety section in BGE.

TermMeaning
At rest not moving, the object is stationary. It is not the same word as pens and pencils which are stationery!
Average Speedthe distance of the whole journey divided by the time for the whole journey.
Braking Distancedistance the vehicle will travel as the brakes are applied.
Displacementhow far you have travelled in a straight line. We would say “as the crow flies” You must quote a direction when writing down a displacement.
Distanceis how far you have travelled. It is another name for length.
Dynamicsthe part of mechanics dealing with Forces.
Instantaneous Speedthe speed at which you are travelling over a very short distance.
KinematicsKinematics means the part of mechanics dealing with motion, speed, acceleration etc
MechanicsMechanics is the branch of Physics dealing with motion (how things move)
Reaction Time the time it takes a person to react to a situation and understand the dangers.
ScalarA quantity that is fully described by a value and unit
Speed is the distance travelled in unit time.
Stopping Distancestopping distance= thinking distance + braking distance .
Thinking distanceis the distance a vehicle will travel in the time it takes you to react to the situation.
TimeTime- is how long your journey took. It is measured in seconds or during our road safety topic hours. We never write sec or secs in Physics to mean seconds
Uniform Speedwhen your speed isn’t changing, it remains constant.
VectorA quantity that is fully described by a value, unit and direction
Velocitydisplacement covered during the journey divided by the time taken. You must quote a direction when writing down a velocity
