The period (T) of a simple pendulum can be calculated using where l is the pendulum length and g is the gravitational field strength. Using a single value of length and period, we can determine the acceleration due to gravity. However, it would be better experimental practise to vary the length of the pendulum and ... Read more
Here are whole unit summary notes to help you prepare for the unit test next week. Thanks to Mr Noble for sharing his notes.
Here are some revision notes on waves to help you prepare for the unit 3 test next week.
As promised, here are the Scholar notes for unit 2 of the CfE Higher course.
Here are some notes to help with your revision for the electricity & energy test. Thanks to Mr Noble for sharing his notes. There are also practice exam questions and answers if you want them.
Your assignment will be based on an optoelectronics topic. You will get some ideas for practical work by downloading this booklet. I have attached a copy of the Scholar notes for unit 3 of the CfE Higher course. You will find background physics with appropriate energy band explanations on pages 103-142. Don’t print this document, ... Read more
Thanks to Mr Ferguson for sharing his copy of the marking instructions for the 1996 Higher paper, it’s the only one I didn’t have! You’ll find a link to his answers on the Higher revision page.
The Q&W unit assessment is next week. Here are the Scholar notes to help with your revision.
Remember that your unit assessment for P&W will take place at the end of this week. The attached notes might be helpful during your revision.
An electric field can be used to accelerate charged particles. Conservation of energy tells us that work done by the electric field = change in the particle’s kinetic energy The speed of the particle can be determined if its charge and the accelerating voltage (potential difference) are known. The notes attached to the end of this post ... Read more
