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
