Content description
Investigate and make judgements on how the characteristics and properties of materials are combined with force, motion and energy to create engineered solutions
  1. explaining the way common machines combine properties of materials and force, motion and energy in, for example, cranes on building sites
  2. examining and explaining the interaction between material properties and function of a common system, such as car brakes
  3. analysing the relationship between materials of properties, forces and safety in engineered systems such as bridges
  4. critiquing the effectiveness of the combinations of materials, forces, energy and motion in an engineered system such as a 3D printer
  5. calculating forces, reactions and loads in structures
