Episode 103: Currents and Charge Carriers

From the Institute of Physics, these activities present a range of examples involving different types of charge carrier and links the measured current to rates of flow of charge. The activities consist of a series of demonstrations which could be set up before the lesson. These include: • considering different...

Episode 100: Preparation for Electric Current Topic *suitable for home teaching*

From the Institute of Physics, this topic looks at basic electrical ideas, particularly current, potential difference and energy. The topic is split into teaching episodes. These are self-contained activities of varying time periods. The topics in this section include:

Episode 101:...

Episode 224: Describing Circular Motion

From the Institute of Physics, this learning episode introduce students to the importance of circular motion and the need for a centripetal force to keep an object moving along a circular path. The activities include: * observing circular motion * whirling bucket and centripetal force * discussing examples of...

Episode 225: Quantitative Circular Motion *suitable for home teaching*

This learning episode from the Institute of Physics, uses worked examples and discussion to help students gain an understanding of circular motion, including linear velocity, angular velocity and angular acceleration. The activities include: * discussing linear and angular velocity * calculating angular velocity *...

Episode 309: Generating Waves

From the Institute of Physics, this learning episode introduces the idea that vibrations can give rise to disturbances travelling outwards, i.e. to progressive waves. This illustrates some of the basic properties of waves. The activities include: • investigating transverse and longitudinal waves in a spring •...

Episode 215: Forces on Vehicles

In this learning episode, from the Institute of Physics, students look at the forces involved when one vehicle impacts another object. This can be used to illustrate the forces, acceleration and deceleration involved. It considers the effect of the distance over which a force acts rather than the time of action of...

Episode 106: Electrical Power

From the Institute of Physics, in this learning episode, students calculate electrical power and through discussion, review their understanding of: • current • potential difference • electromotive force (emf) • charge • drift velocity Students are reminded of the idea that power is the rate of doing work (or the...

Gas and Pressure

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to develop the ideas relating to the pressure of the gas state and dependence of the boiling...

Evaporation of Water

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to distinguish between boiling and evaporation of water below boiling point.

Boiling forms a pure sample of water in the gas state (...

Fire: Flames and Chemical Change

These downloadable videos and animations are part of the multimedia package Stuff and Substance, developed by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). They can be used to develop ideas relating to flames, from hydrogen to candle wax.
