This topic area is covered in KS4 science at a very similar level to that expected here. Students are likely to remember the electromagnetic spectrum waves and have recently used the wave equation as a calculation. The difference between GCSE and the T level specification is likely to be the examples and contexts of using waves in medical and science settings to bring the concepts to life and allow students to be able to how properties and equations are applied.  There are also opportunities to link to the sections on converting units and comparing gamma radiation to other waves on the same spectrum.        


Whilst this list provides a source of information and ideas for experimental work, it is important to note that recommendations can date very quickly. Do NOT follow suggestions which conflict with current advice from CLEAPSS, SSERC or recent safety guides. eLibrary users are responsible for ensuring that any activity, including practical work, which they carry out is consistent with current regulations related to Health and Safety and that they carry an appropriate risk assessment. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
