• Question 1

Static electricity is caused by an electric charge.

true
EDDIE SAYS
The statement is true; static electricity is caused by an electric charge.
• Question 2

What is the name for the phenomenon that electrons move from a person to the Earth through an object when electrostatic charge is build by this person walking on a carpet?

earhting
EDDIE SAYS
During earthing electrons move from a person to the Earth through an object.
• Question 3

What is an electric current?

flow of electrons
EDDIE SAYS
Electric current is the flow of electrons.
• Question 4

What type of electric circuit is made of more than one loops?

parallel
EDDIE SAYS
Parallel circuits are made from more than one loops.
• Question 5

What is the measure of how easy or difficult it is for electricity to flow?

resistance
EDDIE SAYS
Resistance is the measure of how easy or difficult it is for electricity to flow.
• Question 6

What piece of equipment can be used to change the current flowing in a circuit easily multiple times?

variable resistor
EDDIE SAYS
A variable resistor is used to change the current flowing in a circuit easily multiple times.
• Question 7

What is the measure of energy transferred every second?

power
EDDIE SAYS
Power is the measure of energy transferred every second.
• Question 8

How do we call quantities that have a size and a direction?

vector quantities
EDDIE SAYS
Vector quantities are quantities that have a size and a direction.
• Question 9

How do we call the change in velocity?

acceleration
EDDIE SAYS
The change in velocity is called acceleration.
• Question 10

What does a flat line show in a velocity time graph?

constant velocity
EDDIE SAYS
A a flat line in a velocity time graph shows constant velocity.
• Question 11

What type of quantity is a force?

vector
EDDIE SAYS
Forces have a size and direction; they are vector quantities.
• Question 12

What type of force is air resistance?

drag
EDDIE SAYS
Air resistance is a type of drag.
• Question 13

Tick 3 types of forces that act on a cricket ball when it leaves the player's hand.

air resistance
friction
gravity
EDDIE SAYS
Once a cricket ball leaves a player's hand only air resistance, friction and gravity.
• Question 14

What does the force needed to accelerate a particular object depend on? Two options apply.

the object's acceleration
the object's mass
EDDIE SAYS
The force needed to accelerate a particular object depends on its mass and acceleration.
• Question 15

What does the gravitational field strength describe?

how strong gravity is
EDDIE SAYS
The gravitational field strength describes how strong gravity is.
• Question 16

The distance done from when a driver sees danger to actually reacting to it is called...

thinking distance
EDDIE SAYS
The distance done from when a driver sees danger to actually reacting to it is called thinking distance.
• Question 17

Slippery surfaces have ________ friction.

low
EDDIE SAYS
Slippery surfaces have low friction.
• Question 18

The measure of how strongly something is moving is called __________.

momentum
EDDIE SAYS
Momentum is the measure of how strongly something is moving.
• Question 19

Tick two car safety features.

air bags
crumple zones
EDDIE SAYS
Air bags and crumple zones (along with safety belts) are car safety features. Speed bumps are safety features as well, but they are on the road, whereas crash test dummies are used in safety tests.
• Question 20

How do car safety measures generally reduce the injuries caused in a car crash?

by reducing the rate of change of momentum
EDDIE SAYS
Car safety measures generally reduce the injuries caused in a car crash by by reducing the rate of change of momentum.
