Londons driving forces physics teaching pack

This unit looks at how forces and energy play a major role in London’ s transport network.

Students use modern information systems to measure average speeds for journeys around the capital. They investigate forces acting on vehicles and the energy used to make vehicles move, with a focus on how energy efficiency is a vital issue in large conurbations like London.

Finally students explore the factors involved in safely travelling in London. Opportunities are suggested for students to collect data on a local level as well as taking their investigations further at key London institutions such as the Science Museum and the Crystal.
