time, speed and distance
During this topic you will learn how to recognise the relationship between speed, distance time. You will also learn how to calculate speed.
3.1 Energy, electricity and forces: b) forces are interactions between objects and can affect their shape and motion

Learning Checklist
I can measure the size of a force and use the right units.
I can compare the speeds of different things.
I can describe what speed means scientifically and use the correct units.
I can use the relationship between speed, distance and time.
I can describe situations where forces are balanced or unbalanced.
I know that if the forces on an object are balanced, then it moves at a constant speed.
I can use the relationship between pressure, force and area in different situations.
I know that if an object’s speed changes, then the forces acting on it must be unbalanced.
I know what acceleration is.
I can draw distance–time graphs and interpret them correctly.
I can use the equation for speed in calculations and I can convert different units.
