Transcript

  • 1. Year 10 Applied Physics Forces acting on a water skier Inertia acting on objects after the car stops.
  • 2.
    • Students study the Newton Laws of Motion.
    • They study velocity (speed), acceleration, inertia and other concepts
    • to describe the motion of
    • cars, athletes and
    • other moving objects.
  • 3.
    • Students study forces and gravity via a series of experiments and questions.

  • 4.
    • Students study the physics of structures – for example bridges and towers.
    • They investigate materials useful for building structures and the properties they possess for this purpose.
  • 5.
    • Students with an interest in structure and design or a general interest in physics would find this subject interesting.
    • Applied physics is not a pre-requisite for VCE Physics, but would be considered beneficial
    • Applied physics has mathematical connections and uses mathematics to describe the motion and forces involved.
  • 6.
    • Assessment includes experiment reports, topic tests, data analysis tasks and final examination
    • Ticker timer tape shown below is used to analyse the motion of an object
