Derivations

Leaving Cert Physics: Derivations

There are a total of 11 derivations on the Leaving Cert Physics syllabus:

1. Three equations of motion

2. F = ma

3. v = r w

4. Relationship between Periodic Time and Radius for a Satellite in Orbit

5. To show that any object that obeys Hooke’s Law will also execute SHM

6. Equation for a diffraction grating

7. Resistors in series and in parallel

8. F = Bqv

I have put the derivations together in a single word document, together with the year in which they have appeared on an exam paper.

It can be found on the revision page of thephysicsteacher.ie

Hope it proves useful
