# UNIT SUMMARY: Concept map: Work done= force x distance moved in the direction of the force Word done

## Kinetic energy (j) - x mass x (velocity) ^2 KE: x mv^2

Potential energy transferred (j) = mass x acceleration of free-fall (N/KG) x change in height PE: m x g x h

## Electrical energy= voltage x current x time E= V x I x t

The principle of conservation of energy: energy cannot be created nor destroyed, but can be transformed from one kind of energy to another, or transferred from one object to another.

An object moving in a circle at constant speed must be accelerating due to its direction changing

There must be resultant force acting on an object which is moving in a circle in order to bring about this acceleration

## Einsteins theory is believed as it predictions were tested successfully.

Scientists may be reluctant to accept new theories, such as Einsteins as it over-turns long established explanations.

Some scientific theories such as Einsteins theory of relativity, require creative imagination
