Here are a set of resources to help with iGCSE forces and Astronomy Section. The syllabus aims are shown below and also all the resources for the lesson. The idea is to have a printed version of the PPT ideally or use on a PC where you can edit it, or view on a tablet. As you work through the activities you should have a 2nd browser tab open for the quiz, and work through the questions as you go. Also linked from the quiz are some breakout videos to view if you get stuck. I would also suggest you download a QR Code reader so you can find any links quickly.

Syllabus…

1.32 Understand gravitational field strength, g, and recall that it is different on other planets and the moon from that on the Earth

1.33 Explain that gravitational force:

  • causes moons to orbit planets
  • causes the planets to orbit the sun
  • causes artificial satellites to orbit the Earth
  • causes comets to orbit the sun

1.34 Describe the differences in the orbits of comets, moons and planets

1.35 Use the relationship between orbital speed, orbital radius and time period

1.36 Understand that:

  • the universe is a large collection of billions of galaxies
  • a galaxy is a large collection of billions of stars
  • our solar system is in the Milky Way galaxy.
