STEP 2 Mechanics

Introduction

This module introduces you to STEP 2 questions which involve Mechanics.

This STEP 2 module consists of 7 STEP questions, some topic notes and useful formulae, a "hints" sheet and a "solutions" booklet.

STEP questions are challenging, so don't worry if you get stuck. These STEP 2 modules assume that you have already begun to develop your problem-solving skills and approach to STEP questions by working on the Foundation modules. You can also ask for support, help and hints on the STEP Support discussion forum.

About this assignment

This assignment offers a selection of four questions on aspects of the STEP 2 Mechanics specification, together with some guidelines on what you need to know in order to solve them. Unlike Pure questions, you are required to do some modelling which involves drawing clear diagrams and stating your assumptions clearly, before getting stuck in to some algebra.

Two of these questions are old STEP I questions from before the 2019 specification changes.
