Specific Heat Capacity

PHET have two nice simulations that help with this. 

1) Calculus Grapher (requires Flash, so try Edge rather than Chrome)

- Ensure integral and derivative are ticked. Now the top graph illustrates displacement, the middle velocity and the bottom acceleration. Try out different shapes and work out how the others change.

2) The Moving Man

- The 'Charts' tab is most useful. Move the man at a constant speed/ accelerating and compare displacement, velocity and acceleration.

 

Specific Latent Heat

There are 5 of these SUVAT equations.

Once you are completely confident with your SUVAT and have had some practice, we can start looking at motion in two dimensions, projectiles.
