Dynamics 2018

The latest version February 2020

This is the updated version of the Dynamics booklet, updated to match the 2017 SQA changes.

The materials below I’ve just uploaded from my Intermediate 2 folder and thought some of this might be useful. It’s a quick upload and I’ll sort it out when the rest of the development work is completed (hahaha). Currently I’ve a prelim to write and get copied for two weeks time.

Here are some practice questions with worked answers and 6 to a page diagram of the sky diving graph

Thanks to Ms K Ward from Edinburgh Academy for these equation flashcards. If you print them on card double sided you can get two lots to share with a friend

Someone has pinched my line!

and I had this idea at Science on Stage!


For those doing the UASP -Electricity and Energy

  • Revise the type of energy and conversion
  • Gravitational potential
  • Kinetic
  • Work done
  • Heat
  • Electrical
  • Practical electrical and electronic circuits
  • Ohm’s law
  • Electrical practical circuits
  • Electrical power
  • Specific Heat Capacity
  • Pressure
  • Gas Laws
  • Kinetic Theory

Try the following questions

Specimen Paper:

Section 1:    q6, 10, 11, 12, 13,14,15,16,17, Section 2:        Q5, 6, 7, 8

National 5 2017

Section 1: Q1-7, 19,         Section 2: Q1,2,3,

National 5 2016

Section 1: Q1-7      Section 2: Q1,2,3,4,5

Section 1: Q1-6      Section 2: Q1,2,3,4

National 5: 2014

Section 1: Q1-7      Section 2: Q1,2,3


Learn the formula for

Ew=QV, Ew=Fd,    Ep=mgh,     Ek=½mv2,     E=Pt,      Ee=ItV, EH=mcΔT,           EH = ml,            P=F/A,        Q=It,       R in series,        R in parallel, V1 =R1/Rt ´Vs,     V=IR,     P=IV,     P=I2R,     P=V2/R, pV/T(K)=constant

Make flashcards of

  • The Kinetic theory
  • Gas Laws
  • Rules for series and parallel
  • Circuit Symbols
  • Rules for charges attracting and repelling
  • Definitions of
    • Pressure
    • Temperature and average speed and kinetic energy
    • Electric Fields
    • Conservation of Energy
    • Specific Heat Capacity
    • Specific Latent Heat
    • Power
    • Current

Learn the units for all the electricity quantities, properties of matter and energy quantities.

I’ll add to this during the week as I have time


Look over some OLD Higher papers for the Pressure and Gas Laws as well as the relevant past papers above. I’ll look out the papers with question numbers as soon as I can.

If you’re doing the Waves and Radiation UASP I’ll get some revision plans up soon
