Chapter 3: Dynamics A body continues in its state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line unless a resultant external force acts on it. The rate of change of momentum of a body is proportional to the resultant force acting on it and occurs in the direction of the force. If body A exerts a force on body B, then body B exerts an equal but opposite force on body A. The product of the mass of an object and its velocity. Impulse is the area under the force-time graph. The rate of change of momentum. The total momentum of a system remains constant provided no external resultant forces act on the system. OR The total momentum of an isolated system of bodies is constant. The reluctance of a body to start moving or to change its motion once it has started. When the state of an object remains unchanged even though two or more forces are acting on it. Chapter 4: Forces The force needed to cause an extension/compression in a spring is directly proportional to its extension/compression. It is the upward force acting on an object that is partially or fully immersed in a fluid. (RJCPromo07) A system is in equilibrium if there is no resultant force and 1

All particles vibrate in the same plane at all times A self-propagating transverse wave in space with electric and magnetic components. Chapter 11: Superposition The principle of superposition states that the resultant displacement at any point is the vector sum of the individual displacement due to each wave arriving at that point. (RJCCT108) Diffraction is the bending of waves through an aperture or around an obstacle. Interference is the superposition of two or more coherent waves to give a resultant wave whose resultant amplitude is given by the principle of superposition.
