Use the attached file to help with revision for your test on Monday. Start at the beginning of the booklet and read up to the end of page 41. Thanks to Mr Noble for sharing his notes. 🙂
//www.youtube.com/watch?v=QK5Bxf3Pov0 We’ve been looking at work and the rate of change of energy. This handout will help you to revise the key points and introduces gravitational potential energy.
Today we examined the importance of Newton’s 3rd law of motion. In our discussions, different explanations for the motion of jets and rockets were proposed and considered. The front runners were; at launch, the ground pushes back against a rocket during flight, air pushes back against a plane Unfortunately, the lack of ground and air (or ... Read more
Here are the solutions to the dynamics and space past papers questions.
Some of you asked for revision questions ahead of the unit assessment. Down load these problems from older past papers. I will add a secoond post with the answers shortly.
We’ve been looking at how the temperature of an object can affect it’s appearance. The attached handout recaps on our work in class and provides some examples of line spectra.
Before the holidays, we performed a set of experiments to determine the latent heat of fusion and latent heat of vaporisation of water. Next week, we’ll review that work and think about possible reasons why our results were not closer to the “book” values. The attached pdf provides a summary of the topic.
We’ve started looking at telescopes and this BBC programme from 2 years ago featured the replacement for Hubble, the James Webb Space Telescope. The presenter, Maggie Aderin Pocock now hosts The Sky at Night on BBC4. Please take some time to watch both parts of the film. Maggie covers the basic idea of satellites, how we achieve geostationary ... Read more
You can also use these notes to prepare for the test on Monday. The test will cover everything up to page 46 in the attached file, but you can skip pages 39 & 40 on Newton’s third law. Thanks to Mr Noble for sharing his notes.
Use these materials to help you prepare for the assessment at the start of next week. Studying up to page 7 of the attached file will cover the topics in the test.
