21 Gravitational Fields

This page covers the gravitational fields section of the course.  Some people find this section very tricky. You must learn the formulae a and what each one means very carefully before you try and do the problems. They are so similar it gets a bit confusing. However, just learn each one carefully and make a …

22 Electric Fields

This page covers the electrical fields section of the course.  Resources 22 Electric Fields Student Booklet 22 Electric Fields Semolina and Electric Fields 22.4 Coulomb Law Challenge Questions pHet Fields Worksheet 22.5 Uni Level Problems https://phet.colorado.edu/sims/html/charges-and-fields/latest/charges-and-fields_en.html

23 Capacitors

This page covers the capacitors section of the course.  One crucial part of this section is the ability to understand how to take Ln on an expoential function. You must make sure you work this out before you start the decay part. Also there are some tricky formulae again so you must make sure you …

24 Magnetic Fields

This page covers the magnetic fields section of the course.  It is worth realising that the iGCSE does not cover all the ideas that AQA 1-9 GCSE covers for this part of the course. Hence, it is worth going over things like FBI from formulae perspective unless you teacher did some extra ideas. Resources 24 …

25 Electromagnetic Induction

This page covers the EM Induction section of the course.  It is really key again you learn the definition slides I have put  here and revisit them over and over. They will eventually make sense but it takes a lot of recap to be sure. Resources 25 Electromagnetic Induction 25 EM Induction Student Booklet 11. …

Electron Diffraction Tubes

Discovery of the Electron The electron was first discovered in 1898 by Sir John Joseph Thomson. Almost 112 years ago J.J. Thomson was at Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge University. Thomson was investigating ‘Cathode Rays’ which had been a puzzle for a long time. Through his experiments Thomson put forward a then controversial theory in which …
