The questions and answers above cover substantially the Alevels Mechanics M2 Edexcel syllabus.
The questions were a selection from a book by Brian Jefferson. That book is endorsed by Edexcel. You can purchase a copy of that book online or in a good bookshop.
|Module 1||Kinematics (M2)|
Alevels Mechanics M2 Edexcel – KinematicsThis topic discusses the motion of a particle fired from the ground or above ground level. There are questions on calculation of range, time of flight and maximum height of a particle. Calculus is used to find position, velocity and acceleration of a particle moving with variable acceleration. Differentiation and integration of vectors with respect to time is also discussed here.
|Unit 2||Motion with non uniform acceleration|
|Unit 3||Motion in a plane|
|Module 2||Centre of mass (M2)|
Alevels Mechanics M2 Edexcel – Centre of massThis chapter examines the following ideas :
|Unit 1||Centre of mass (M2)|
|Unit 2||Centre of mass of a lamina (M2)|
|Unit 3||Centre of mass and equilibrium (M2)|
|Module 3||Work, Energy and Power (M2)|
Alevels Mechanics M2 Edexcel – Work, Energy and PowerThis topic includes questions on work done by a constant force, gravitational potential energy and kinetic energy. It examines the work energy principle, calculations on power and relate power and velocity.
|Unit 1||Work (M2 Edexcel)|
|Unit 2||Energy (M2 Edexcel)|
|Unit 3||Power (M2 Edexcel)|
|Module 4||Collisions (M2)|
Alevels Mechanics M2 Edexcel – CollisionsThis topic discusses the use of Newton's Law of Restitution to calculate outcomes of collisions, analyse collisions between particles and particle/wall collisions. It includes questions on kinetic enerfy loss during a collision.
|Unit 1||Impulse and momentum|
|Unit 2||Newton’s experimental law of restitution|
|Unit 3||Collision with a wall|
|Unit 4||Collisions with 3 particles|
|Module 5||Statics of rigid bodies (M2)|
Alevels Mechanics M2 Edexcel – Statics of rigid bodiesThis topic discusses conditions necessary for a rigid body to be in equilibrium and to calculate unknown forces acting on a rigid body in equilibrium.
|Unit 1||Statics of rigid bodies|
|Unit 2||Statics of rigid bodies review questions|
