Explain the difference between velocity and acceleration.

Title: Report Writing

 

You are required to write an academic report which includes the sections outlined below.

SECTION ONE – the connection between force and motion

• Explain the difference between velocity and acceleration. You must include suitable drawings and/ or diagrams within your response.

• Explain Newton’s Laws of Motion and discuss the implications, giving appropriate examples to support your commentary.

 

SECTION TWO – conservation of energy and momentum

• Describe the different forms that energy can take.

• Explain the principle of conservation of energy and discuss its implications including the concept of efficiency, giving appropriate examples to    support your commentary.

• Define momentum and explain the law of conservation of momentum using a number of appropriate examples.

 

SECTION THREE – the concepts and vocabulary of wave motion

• Explain the terms commonly used to describe a wave. You must include suitable diagrams within your response.

• Explain the difference between a transverse and a longitudinal wave giving an example of each. You must also identify the wavelength and        frequency of each example you have given.

• Explain how water waves and sound waves can be reflected, refracted and diffracted.

 

SECTION FOUR – the straight line model of the behaviour of light

• Explain the laws of reflection and their use in a suitable instrument. You must include appropriate diagrams within your response.

• Explain the laws of refraction.

• Describe the conditions necessary for total internal reflection, giving an example of its use.

 

SECTION FIVE – magnets, magnetic fields, electric charge and electric current

• Explain the nature of magnetism and its laws.

• Draw the magnetic field around a bar magnet, a current carrying wire, and a solenoid. You must deduce the directions of the fields using            suitable rules, and show these on your drawings.

• Explain current and potential difference, and explain how these behave in both series and parallel circuits.
