__Lesson 1- Collaboration and Circular Motion__

Discuss how instruments, including particle accelerators, can help scientists develop better explanations about the physical world

Discuss reasons for collaborative, international research into big scientific questions, including particle physics

Explain how for motion in a circle there must be a resultant force known as a centripetal force that acts towards the centre of the circle

Explain how particle accelerators called cyclotrons cause charged particles to move in a circular or spiral path, due to a magnetic field

Demonstrate an understanding that certain stable elements can be bombarded with proton radiation to change them into radioactive isotopes

Describe the use of particle accelerators (cyclotrons) to produce radioactive isotopes for medical purposes

__Lesson 2- Collisions__

Demonstrate an understanding that for inelastic collisions momentum is conserved but kinetic energy is not conserved

Demonstrate an understanding that for elastic collisions both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved

Analyse collisions in one dimension in terms of momentum and kinetic energy

Carry out calculations using momentum conservation for a two-body collision (in one dimension only)

Carry out calculations using conservation of kinetic energy for a two-body elastic collision (in one dimension

only)

Investigate factors affecting the height of rebound of bouncing balls

__Lesson 3- PET Scanners and Annihation__

Recall that gamma rays can be produced by the annihilation of an electron and a positron

Apply conservation of momentum and charge to positron electron annihilation

Apply the idea of conservation of mass energy for positron electron annihilation

a) in a qualitative way (calculations involving E = mc2 will not be required)

b) in a quantitive way using the equation E = mc2

Explain the use of radio isotopes in PET scanners to produce gamma rays
