If you need help with Physics, you're in the right place. The Physics Boot Camp team has decades of experience of helping students of all abilities improve their GCSE science grades.
This course includes video lectures for every section, downloadable worksheets (with answers) for practice and a summary quiz for each section. Before you spend money on a private tutor, try our course - you can access the course when and where it suits you and the whole unit costs less than one session with a tutor!
At the end of the course you will be confident in handling the key
concepts instead of panicking the night before the exam and you'll be
able to avoid the mistakes that everyone else is making, giving you an
advantage before you even walk into the exam hall!
This course covers Section 2.1 - Forces and their Effects from unit Physics 2, which is part of the AQA Additional Science or Physics course. If this is not your exam board or course, then check out our instructor page for a suitable course for you.
In this unit you will learn about how forces affect motion and how to describe that motion in detail.
We use our expertise from helping thousands of students to highlight the key areas that you need for your exam, along with helping you avoid the mistakes that everyone else makes!

This course is section 2.1 Forces and their effects, from Unit Physics 2, which is suitable for anyone taking the Edexcel Additional Science or Physics exams.
We have divided the course into 2 sections:
A quiz is included at the end of each section for you to check your progress.
Taking two minutes to complete our pre-course survey (see resources) will help us to help you in the future!
Newton's laws of motion explain how things move. Don't worry that
we're starting with the 3rd law, we'll cover the other two later. You
also don't need to remember which law is which, or even that they are
called Newton's laws, but I've kept the names as it's nice to give him
Newton's 1st Law describes how the motion of an object is affected by balanced and unbalanced forces. This includes one of the biggest misconceptions in this unit which always catches students out on exam papers - don't fall into the same trap!
Newton's 2nd Law describes the relationship between force, mass and acceleration.
Weight and mass are two commonly confused terms, it is important that you are able to describe the difference between the two, which you'll be able to do after this session
In this session you'll learn how to define and calculate speed and acceleration.
There are two motion graphs that you need to know: distance-time and velocity-time graphs. Students tend to find these straightforward when dealing with them separately but look at them together and it's chaos! This session will highlight the key features to look for so that you can cope with whatever type of motion graph is thrown at you in the exam.
A vehicle can't stop instantly and this session will help you identify the factors involved in the distance a vehicle travels before stopping.
In this session you will learn how objects behave when a force changes their shape.
