Revising Kinematics with quizzes
(Simple A level Kinematics quizzes for students preparing for the GCE, GCSE, and necta)
Hello folks and welcome to gcequiz.com. In this section, we will be looking at kinematics. Kinematics is another very important aspect of mechanics in physics that should be studied. For this reason, practice quizzes are made available below to assist students to revise the topic well, in preparation for their exams. Hence, let's have a brief overview of kinematics:
Often referred to as the geometry of motion, Kinematics is the branch of mechanics that describes the motion of points, objects, and system of groups of objects, without taking into account the cause of the motion. It is applicable in many areas such as astrophysics to describe the motion of celestial bodies, in mechanical engineering, robotics, and biomechanics (Describing the motion of the human skeleton).
Kinematics focus greatly on the velocities and accelerations of particles or bodies. Hence below are some basic kinematics formulas:
1. a = (v - u)/t
2. (v+u)/2 = d/t
3. d = ut + (0.5)at^2
4. v^2 = u^2 + 2ad
where a = acceleration, v = final velocity, u = initial velocity, t = time, d = distance.
A kinematics question begins with the description of the geometry of the system, declaring the initial conditions of available known values of position, velocity, and/or acceleration of points within the system. Using arguments from geometry, the position, velocity, and acceleration of any unknown parts of the system can be found.
In the exams, students will be expected to answer some questions on kinematics. These questions may be MCQs or short answer questions where they are expected to solve and provide solutions to the respective questions. For more practice quizzes, click here.
This platform will help students prepare well and be fit for the examinations, as the quizzes involve questions of examination standards. For more info and quizzes, visit www.gcequiz.com.
