About the Event
Session 1- Forces and Motion:
An introduction to SUVAT: In this lesson, pupils will be introduced to the 5 Equations of motion known as SUVAT (s-distance, u-initial velocity, v-final velocity, a-acceleration and t-time). These kinematic equations are used to describe the motion of bodies with constant (uniform) acceleration. This is a key topic is all A level Physics specifications, IB Physics, A level maths (mechanics) and IB maths.
Session 2- Electricity:
Charge, potential difference and current. Series and parallel circuits: In this lesson, pupils will be analysing sophisticated series and parallel circuits in detail. The charge, current and potential difference will be calculated at different points in the circuit. Electric field between a point charge and between two points will also be introduced enabling the student to perform further calculations. This is a key topic across all A level Physics specifications and IB physics specification. It is important to develop a strong understanding of the core topic of electricity in order to progress further.
Session 3- Waves:
Wave properties. Electromagnetic waves and radiation: In this lesson, pupils will be learn the basic properties of transverse and longitudinal progressive waves. This will include calculating wave speed and frequency. The properties and uses of the waves in the electromagnetic spectrum will also be introduced so that students can compare ionising radiation techniques, ultrasound, to ionising radiation, x-rays. This is a key topic in all A level specifications and the IB Physics Curriculum.
Session 4- Medical Physics:
Comparing different types of medical diagnostic techniques. How an x-ray machine works: In this lesson, pupils will discuss the properties of x-rays in detail and how they are used in medical diagnosis. The advantages and disadvantages of x-rays will be compared and analysed. By the end of the lesson, pupils will have a clear understanding of how x-rays are generated in hospitals and be able to compare different types of medical diagnostic techniques. This topic is in A level Physics specifications as well as IB Physics topics.
