So it's a P3 AQA ISA, and it's on centripetal force. Basically our teacher told us that it's about how the force affects the velocity of a moving object, but it's really confusing me in the way that we have to change something (in this case mass) to therefore change the force to affect the velocity so we need to actually work out the force and I don't understand how I would do that.... This sounds really mixed up but I don't really get the ISA at all. Could anyone clear things up a bit? Thanks

I dont know much about it as I haven't done it yet but founds some methods which may help you

I am sure you will understand it and do amazingly well because your so clever good luck
Ha I honestly doubt that, but thanks a lot for the links

Can I remind posters that it is not permitted to discuss the details of ISAs on this forum.

Centripetal Force = (mass x velocity^2)/ radius

Look at OCR A-level physics, Unit 4
Centripetal stuff is covered there
