These study notes cover the Applied Maths syllabus, offering an overview of each major topic, its significance and a summary of the key ‘must know’ information. They are designed to aid your revision and help you identify any information gaps.
Uniform Linear Acceleration
This topic is about particles which move in a straight line and accelerate uniformly.
This topic involves looking at the world from a different perspective.
This topic is about objects which travel through the air under gravity.
Connected Particles; pulleys and wedges
This topic is about objects which are connected by strings, or which travel across surfaces (both smooth and rough). It also involves wedges.
Impacts and Collisions
This topic is about spheres which collide with a barrier (impacts) or which collide with another sphere (collisions).
Circular Motion and Simple Harmonic Motion
This question is about two related topics: Circular motion and simple harmonic motion (SHM).
This topic is about is objects which stay where they are.
