How to Play
A quantity that has magnitude only
 
A quantity that has magnitude and direction
 
A push or pull acting on a body from some external source
 
If Body A exerts a force on Body B then Body B exerts an equal and opposite force on Body A
 
The perpendicular distance x the force
 
Anticlockwise moments= clockwise moments
 
The point in the body at which the weight is considered to act
 
The shortest distance from A to B with the direction
 
Rate of change of distance
 
Rate of change of displacement
 
Rate of change of velocity
 
The constant maximum velocity of an object when the resistive forces on it are equal and opposite to the acclerating forces on it
 
The product of the magnitude of a force and the distance moved in the direction of the force
 
Force per unit extension
 
The amount of work a body can do
 
Energy can't be created or destroyed, only transferred from one form or another
 
Energy possessed by virtue of position
 
Energy possessed by virtue of an object's motion
 
Work done per second/ Energy transferred per second
 
The rate of flow of charge
 
The energy converted from electrical potential energy to some other form of charge per coulomb of charge flowing from one point to another
 
The current flowing through a metal wire at constant temperature
 
The p.d. across a conductor divided by the current through it
 
The temperature at which a material, when cooled, loses all electrical resistance
 
Electric charge cannot be created or destroyed nor can charge pile up anywhere
 
The energy converted from some other form to electrical potential energy per coulomb of charge flowing through the source
 
Time taken for one complete circuit/cycle
 
The number of cycles or circuits per second
 
The angle swept out by the radius in time t
 
An object's accleration is directed towards a fixed point and is proportional to its distance away from that point
 
The maximum value of an object's displacement from its equilibrium position
 
An object continues moving in a straight line or at reast, unless acted upon by a resultant force
 
The dying away of the amplitude of free oscillations due to resistive forces
 
When a driving force is applied to a system, causing it to vibrate with the applied force
 
The frequency of the applied force is equal to the natural frequency of the system, causing it to oscillate with maximum amplitude
 
mass x velocity
 
the rate of change of momentum for an object is proportional to the resultant force acting on it and moves in the direction of that force
