Grade 10 Physics Welcome 10Sc1! G9/10 science course – Your 6th Trimester What is physics (again)? Your friend asks you what physics is about – write down 3 things you tell him/her.
Grade 10 Welcome & Introduction • What is physics? • Study of the natural world around us • From the very small sub-atomic particlesto the • very large stars, galaxies, universe. • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fKBhvDjuy0
Grade 10 Welcome & Introduction To study of the natural world around us we look at: • Motion (G10) speed, acceleration, forces, orbits • Heat (G9) temperature, heat capacity, transfer, insulation • Waves (G10) wave behaviour in light, sound, water • Electricity (G9) charges, currents, voltage, power • Atomic/Nuclear (IB) fission, fusion, power, bombs • Astrophysics (IB) stars, universe, cosmos. (Is there anything missing above?) To study this you need certain scientific skills:
