AS Physics - Module 1

Unit 1

Candidates learn about modern techniques of communication with a focus on sound and music – what is it, how can it be transmitted, and what's the best way to store it?

We also study how views of matter have proved inaccurate and give a limited overview of our present understanding, as well as unanswered questions.

AS Physics - Module 2

Unit 2

How do we describe the motion of an athlete or vehicle, what affects their maximum speed, and how does physics affect the design of vehicles and sports equipment? For instance what determines the trajectory and range of a ball and what energy changes occur?

We also look at Energy and the Environment – where does energy come from, how do we use it, why do we need so much, what are the consequences and how do we use it more efficiently?
