About Mr Thompson

Ulverston Victoria High School Head of Physics and Ogden Trust Teacher Fellow.

YEAR 12 – What wasn’t on paper1?

Well paper 1 pretty much covered most of waves but don’t count on there being NO waves on Friday. Polarisation wasn’t touched and standing waves only came up in the multiple choice.

I would be very surprised if there was any more archimedes, resolving forces, resisitivity or Hookes Law on Friday. Acceleration and motion graphs were also pretty well covered.

The elctricity questions were brief so don’t be surprised if some more electricity turns up.

So what’s left? Photoelectric effect, moments and projectiles are the three big omissions and if for some reason I could only revise three topics before Friday it would be these three.

There was no practical method either so expect a meaty experimental method question.

Good luck,

Mr T
