Applied Physics

  1. 1. Year 10 Applied Physics Forces acting on a water skier Inertia acting on objects after the car stops.
  2. 2. <ul><li>Students study the Newton Laws of Motion. </li></ul><ul><li>They study velocity (speed), acceleration, inertia and other concepts </li></ul><ul><li>to describe the motion of </li></ul><ul><li>cars, athletes and </li></ul><ul><li>other moving objects. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Students study forces and gravity via a series of experiments and questions. </li></ul>String Bench Pulley Hook Weight Block of wood
  4. 4. <ul><li>Students study the physics of structures – for example bridges and towers. </li></ul><ul><li>They investigate materials useful for building structures and the properties they possess for this purpose. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Students with an interest in structure and design or a general interest in physics would find this subject interesting. </li></ul><ul><li>Applied physics is not a pre-requisite for VCE Physics, but would be considered beneficial </li></ul><ul><li>Applied physics has mathematical connections and uses mathematics to describe the motion and forces involved. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Assessment includes experiment reports, topic tests, data analysis tasks and final examination </li></ul><ul><li>Ticker timer tape shown below is used to analyse the motion of an object </li></ul>
