### Quick Reference (25)

Conservation of momentum

This leaflet introduces the concept of conservation of momentum in both one and two dimensions.

Conversion of units

On occasions it is necessary to convert from one system of units to another.
This leaflet explains how this is done.

Displacement-time and Velocity-time graphs

This leaflet explains how graphs can be used to describe mathematical models of motion.

Equations of motion

Forces acting at an angle - resolving forces

This leaflet explains how a force can be split into two perpendicular components.

Forces acting at an angle (with friction)

This leaflet introduces friction into the analysis of the effect of forces on bodies.

Impact and momentum - definition and units

This leaflet introduces the concepts of impact and momentum.

Introduction to mechanics

This leaflet explains the terms statics and dynamics and provides basic introductory material.

Parallel forces acting together

In this leaflet we consider the resultant force when several parallel forces act.

Particle on a slope (with friction)

This leaflet analyses particles on slopes in the presence of friction.

Particles on a slope

When resolving forces, the directions generally taken are horizontal and vertical.
However, there are situations when it is better to consider other directions for resolving.
This leaflet explains how this is done.

Types of Force

This leaflet explains the various types of force which are commonly found when studying the motion of physical bodies.

Maths EG Teacher Interface

The teacher interface for Maths EG which may be used for computer-aided assessment of maths, stats and numeracy from GCSE to undergraduate level 2. These resources have been made available under a Creative Common licence by Martin Greenhow and Abdulrahman Kamavi, Brunel University. Teachers need to register (top right of screen) and thereafter login to use the system, after which they may use it to compose their own tests by selecting (specifically or randomly) questions from the entire database of questions. Instructions are available from the title page.
