ODU Resources

These need a real sort out and I’ll get on to it as soon as I can. I’ll upload lots of resources that are now hard to find. I hope they’re useful to teachers and students.

2018-updated

These are part 1 of the notes in pdf format, so you all ought to be able to open them. There is a word version underneath.

OUR DYNAMIC UNIVERSE 2018 pdf

OUR DYNAMIC UNIVERSE 2018 word

These are part 1 of the notes in word format, you can adapt these if you can open them.

For those having trouble with Unit 1 part 1 try this little document

1. 1a Equations of motion

1. 1a Equations of motion

Part 2 still has to be updated to be 2018 ready.

These are part 2 of the notes in word format, you can adapt these if you can open them.

OUR DYNAMIC UNIVERSE part 2 These are part 2 of the notes in pdf format, so you all ought to be able to open them.

I’ve removed the Time Dilation detailed version and added it as a separate document as I suspect most of you wont read them; which is a pity as it makes everything seem fine! Based on Russell Stannard’s excellent book “Relativity- a very short introduction” Oxford. (2008)  ISBN 978–0–19–923622–0)

ODU worked ANSWERS_4 Currently the most up to date version of the worked answers.

Additional Support

I’ll get corrections up as soon as possible, just a bit hard to get it all done.

For those struggling with the vectors try these to give you some practice Great Resource from Mr Crookes. Set up your 2 vectors, either use a scale diagram or components and compare to the given answer. Enjoy!

AH (Doppler)– some of this is relevant to Higher.

africanfastfood This is an introduction to the momentum topic; think about the collision and where the energy is transferred.

4.4 ODU EqoM 2012 this document has the macros enabled. It allows you to check your answers for the acceleration time graphs that you drew from the velocity time graph diagrams.

If you don’t like proving v2=u2+2as from v=u+at then use this neat little sheet from Mr Mackenzie.

using displacement equation to prove the last equation

Collisions- Think Safety before buying a car!

The green dots and red dots in the animation represent spaceships. The ships of the green fleet have no velocity relative to each other, so for the clocks onboard of the individual ships, the same amount of time elapses relative to each other, and they can set up a procedure to maintain a synchronized standard fleet time. The ships of the “red fleet” are moving with a velocity of 0.866 of the speed of light with respect to the green fleet.

The blue dots represent pulses of light. One cycle of light-pulses between two green ships takes two seconds of “green time”, one second for each leg.

{\displaystyle {\sqrt {3}}}

As seen from the perspective of the reds, the transit time of the light pulses they exchange among each other is one second of “red time” for each leg. As seen from the perspective of the greens, the red ships’ cycle of exchanging light pulses travels a diagonal path that is two light-seconds long. (As seen from the green perspective the reds travel 1.73 ({\displaystyle {\sqrt {3}}}) light-seconds of distance for every two seconds of green time.)The animation cycles between the green perspective and the red perspective, to emphasize the symmetry.
