Physics of flow

Rate this resource

The units of the Supported Learning in Physics Project (SLIPP), published by Heinemann, introduced students to a new method of studying on their own, or sometimes in small groups with other students. The teacher’s role was to guide students in their use of the unit. Students were expected to learn about the topic mainly through their own study of the printed unit and the practical work associated with it.

The context for Physics of Flow was fluid flow in the home and in industry. Physics content included control and measurement of fluid flow, Bernoulli effect, Hall effect, mass flow rate, streamline and turbulent flow, and viscosity.

Sections of the unit included:
* 'Ready to Study' sections
* Explanations of the physics in context
* Worked examples
* Questions
* Practical explorations
* Achievement lists
* A glossary
* Answers to questions
* Resources and further reading
