Transcript

  • 1. PHYSICSFORM 4 Chapter 1 Introduction to Physics By: Wan A’isyah Wan Mahdi
  • 2. What is PHYSICS??Branch of science concerning the study of●natural phenomena, properties of matter andenergy also the connection between them.Physics – Come from the Latin word physica●meaning the science of natural things.19th century – natural philosophy.●Experimental observations and quantitative●measurements.
  • 3. Natural Phenomena??Lightning and thunder.●Sea waves and tides.●Rain and sunshine.●Earthquake and hurricane.● LightningLightning is electric current
  • 4. This parabolaThis parabola-shaped lavaflow illustratesGalileoGalileos law of falling bodies aswell as blackbody radiation –you can tell the temperature from thecolor of the blackbody.Cassiopeia ACassiopeia A – asphericallyCassiopeia A – a sphericallysymmetricremnant of the 1680 supernova
  • 5. The astronaut and Earth are both in free-fallDispersionDispersion oflightDispersion of light by aprism
  • 6. Everyday Objects?List an everyday objects around you.●1)2)3)How they are related to physics concept?Made based on physics concepts.●By theories and experiments.●Numerical analysis, calculus, computer●simulations ( technology).
  • 7. Physics is QuantitativeExperimental results in physics are numerical●measurements and theories.Use mathematics to give numerical results to●match these measurements. What is the differences between physics and math?
  • 8. ●PHYSICS●Ultimately concerned with descriptions of thematerial world, it tests its theories by comparingthe predictions of its theories with dataproduced from the observations andexperimentation.●MATHEMATICS- Concerned with abstract logical patterns, notlimited by those observed in the real world.
  • 9. Heat Forces andNuclear physics Motion Fields of LightElectronics study in Physics Electricity and Waves electromagnetism
  • 10. 1.4 Understanding Measurement Choosing an appropriate instrument to ● measure a physical quantity is important toensure that the measurement is accurate and reproducible.
  • 11. Common Measurement InstrumentMeasurement tape- measure length of● several metres. - accurate up to 0.01 m.Metre rule – measure lengths of a few●centimetres to a metre. - accurate up to 0.1 cm
  • 12. Vernier callipers – measure lengths of less● than 10 cm. - suitable for measuring internal or externaldiameter of round object - accurate up 0.01 cmMicrometer screw gauge● - measure the very small readings. - accurate up to 0.01 mm.
  • 13. Consistency and AccuracyConsistency● -ability of the instrument to measure aquantity with little or no deviation among themeasurement.Accuracy● - actual value or the nearer to the actualvalue. - how close the measurement to the actualvalue.
