    What are some ideas for an experiment on electromagnetism for physics mod 6?

    Hey all, I will be conducting an experiment and writing a report on it (depth study) based on the theme of: 'Analyse electric and magnetic interactions due to charged particles, currents, and/or fields'. This experiment must be 'engaging' / creative (because otherwise, I lose marks in the...

    How to Get Better At Theory Based Responses

    Hi, What are the best ways for one to improve their responses in theory based questions. The numericals are fine, however I am noticing that I am consistently losing an average of one mark per question, on the theory based questions. What is the best strategy to improve my marks in these areas...

    How often should I revise

    Hi, What is the best revision strategy to stay fresh with content especially for physics and chem? I have noticed the test papers ask very niche questions, where you are required to remember very small details about all the chapters in order to go up to the higher b5/b6 mark. So how often...

    Electromagnetism: Velocity of a subatomic particle

    A question popped up in a physics textbook and I would just like to clarify my answer: a) My answer: Potential difference is positive so ΔV = ΔU/q and since potential difference is positive so must be ΔU. ΔU = q*ΔV = (-1.602 * 10^-19)(100) = -1.602 * 10^-17 ΔU = -ΔKe -1.602 * 10^-17 =...

    Difference between uncertainty and accuracy?

    What is the difference between uncertainty and accuracy? I've been reading through some NESA documents and they seem to use the two words interchangeably. Is there a difference? Thanks :)

    I need advice on whether to drop physics or software design and development.

    You don't need to worry about your subjects being helpful in your future degree/course (unless it is a prerequisite) - but considering the information you've provided it seems that you are more interested in physics so perhaps you should consider dropping software in that case

    Mass defect of nuclear fission/fusion

    I am a bit confused about the mass defect occurring from nuclear fission/fusion reactions. Online sources + textbooks say that the products of a nuclear fusion reaction will have less mass than the reactants, and will release energy in relation to E=mc^2. But in my matrix book, they are saying...
