# Edexcel A Levels M1 (Mechanics) Coursework

The questions and answers below cover substantially the Alevels Mechanics M1 Edexcel syllabus. The questions were selected from an endorsed by Edexcel M1 book written by Brian Jefferson.
 Module 1 Motion in a straight line (M1) Alevels Mechanics M1 Edexcel - Motion in a straight line This chapter discusses the following: vector and scalar quantities average speed and velocity graphs of displacement, velocity and acceleration against time constant acceleration equations including motion of a particle moving vertically The selected questions and fully worked answers are indexed as follows: Unit 1 Position, displacement & distance Unit 2 Displacement time graphs Unit 3 Velocity time graphs Unit 4 Motion with uniform acceleration Unit 5 Free fall under gravity Module 2 Vectors (M1) Alevels Mechanics M1 Edexcel - Vectors This chapter discusses the following how to manipulate vectors in 2 dimensions vectors in component form, its magnitude and direction problems involving position vectors of objects moving with constant velocity problems involving velocity vectors or objects moving with constant acceleration The selected questions and fully worked answers are indexed as follows: Unit 1 Vectors in 2 dimensions Unit 2 Components of a vector Unit 3 Position, displacement & velocity Module 3 Forces (M1) Alevels Mechanics M1 Edexcel - Forces This chapter discusses forces in practical situations, models forces as vectors and solving problems with forces in equilibrium.There are also problems involving modelling friction. The selected questions and fully worked answers are indexed as follows: Unit 1 Different types of forces Unit 2 Forces at a point, modelling by vectors Unit 3 Modelling friction Module 4 Newton's Laws of Motion (M1) Alevels Mechanics M1 Edexcel - Newton's Laws of Motion This chapter discusses relationships between force and acceleration. There are equations of motion for objects acted on by forces and some problems involving connected articles. (1st, 2nd and 3rd Laws) The selected questions with fully worked answers are indexed as follows : Unit 1 Newton's 1st and 2nd Laws of Motion Unit 2 More on Newton's Laws Unit 3 Newton's 3rd Law Module 5 Impulse and momentum (M1) Alevels Mechanics M1 Edexcel - Impulse and momentum This topic discusses how to define impulse and momentum and the relationship between them. The principle of conservation of momentum is used to solve problems involving collisions of particles. The selected questions and fully worked answers are indexed as follows: Unit 1 Calculating impulse and momentum Unit 2 Conservation of linear momentum Unit 3 Review questions on impulse momentum Module 6 Moments (M1) Alevels Mechanics M1 Edexcel - Moments This topic discusses the turning effect of a force about a given point and parallel forces in equilibrium. The selected questions and fully worked answers are indexed as follows: Unit 1 The turning effect of a force Unit 2 Forces at an angle Unit 3 Equilibrium of parallel forces
