Mind Map – Force and Motion




(Click on the image to enlarge)

Force and motion is the second chapter in Malaysia Form 4 Physics. It is a very big chapter. Image above shows the mind map of this chapter. As you can see, there are 3 main sub-topics in this chapter. In “Study of Motion”, we discuss the motion in a straight line without considering the force. In the “Study of Force”, we discuss the motion under the effect of force or forces, and the most important concept that you need to know is Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion. Under “Work, Energy and Power”, you need to understand their definition and their relationship.

The following is the list of topic in this chapter.
